OUR pick of tonight's TV

The Mighty Redcar (BBC2, 9pm)

THE documentary following the people of the North Yorkshire seaside town of Redcar catches up with 19-year-old James, whose hopes of starting a new life are jeopardised when he is arrested for a crime he adamantly claims he did not commit.

Sixteen-year-old Kaitlyn is not happy at the prospect of having to move house yet again - especially as she is about to get her GCSE results - and 15-year-old netball player Safy is hoping to win a scholarship to a leading private school that focuses on the sport.

Back in Time for the Factory (BBC2, 8pm)

ALEX JONES presents the living history series in which a group of women step back in time to experience what factory life was like decades ago.

Having started in the late 1960s, time now moves on to the 1970s, a decade that saw peak employment for women in the booming factories of Wales, from teenagers straight out of school to mothers trying to make ends meet. But while they may have worked as hard as their male counterparts - and also kept things ticking over at home - as the volunteers discover, not everything was equal.

Celebrity MasterChef (BBC1, 8pm)

THE culinary contest continues as actress Lisa Maxwell, Strictly Come Dancing professional AJ Pritchard, furniture restorer Jay Blades, radio presenter Clara Amfo and country singer Stella Parton - sister of Dolly - demonstrate their culinary prowess.

They begin by making a dish from the ingredients in the Mystery Box, which this week includes pork loin, trout, cauliflower, raspberries and white chocolate, before cooking for paying customers in a restaurant kitchen. In the final round, they prepare a two-course meal of their own design to impress judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode, hoping it will be enough to see them through to the next round.

No Offence (C4, 9pm)

PAUL ABBOTT has come a long way since honing his skills on Corrie (those early episodes pepping up ITV3 schedules a treat at the moment).

Aside from Shameless, he also gave us this acclaimed drama, which returns for a third run this week. Joanna Scanlan is back as DI Viv Deering, and she and the Friday Street team face their ugliest enemy yet when they clash with the far-right. Fans of sublime sitcom Mum should look out for Lisa McGrillis as local-girl-done-good Caroline McCoy, a political underdog locked in a contentious mayoral election battle with incumbent liberal Kashif Hassan (Ace Bhatti). Deering and her team are drawn into their rivalry when a mayoral hustings between the pair becomes a flashpoint for violence as assassin Beckett (Darren Connolly) enters the political arena.

Serial Killer with Piers Morgan (ITV, 9pm)

NEARLY 30 years ago, Alex Henriquez was convicted for murdering two girls, aged 10 and 14, and a 21-year-old woman in the Bronx.

He is serving 75 years but continues to maintain his innocence. Henriquez has never spoken publicly about his crimes, but now Piers Morgan attempts to uncover the truth. The presenter explores how a national outcry which followed the death of 10-year-old Jessica Guzman in 1990 prompted the New York Police Department to assemble a task force. They investigated the string of murders that haunted the Bronx for two years. Henriquez was a local businessman, and noone suspected he would be the prime suspect. However, he was the last person seen with Jessica and was known to the other victims. Morgan is assisted by FBI veteran James Fitzgerald, who helps expose the real man behind the lies.

Celebrity Juice: 10th Birthday Special (ITV2, 10pm)

MANY snooty critics thought Keith Lemon's foul-mouthed panel game would be here today and gone tomorrow when it launched in 2008. How wrong they were.

A decade later and it's still going strong thanks to a mix of outrageous games, filthy humour and the star appeal of Holly Willoughby, Gino D'Acampo and Fearne Cotton. As series 20 launches, Paddy McGuinness, and Love Island winners Dani Dyer and Jack Fincham join the usual suspects for 40-plus minutes of glorious stupidity, while ITV2 bosses sit back and watch those ratings soar.
