Stuck for what to what tonight? Fear not, here's our run down of the best things on the box tonight...

Jo Brand’s How to Stay Sane in a Mad World (C4, 8pm)

Before she became a comedian, Jo Brand spent 10 years working as a psychiatric nurse.

So, if anyone knows the importance of looking after our mental health as well as our physical wellbeing during the pandemic, it’s her. Here, she’s sharing her A-Z guide on the best ways to keep mentally strong during what has been a very stressful time.

The emphasis is on keeping it fun, creative and, of course, Covid-friendly as she touches on everything from health to horticulture, QR codes to UV rays, and hibernation to isolation (which sounds like a lot of Hs for an A-Z, but we’re sure she’ll run the full gamut.)

To prevent Jo herself getting too stressed out, there will also be a few other famous faces sharing their advice.

Waterhole: Africa’s Animal Oasis (BBC2, regions vary)

The opening episode of this three-part series showed how Chris Packham and Ella Al-Shamahi worked with Mwiba Wildlife Reserve in Tanzania to build the world’s first waterhole with a built-in specialist camera rig. Now, in the second instalment, it’s the hottest time of the year, which means the waterhole is getting busier in the cool of the night. The cameras show how the shift to nocturnal activity has also brought a new predator out of the shadows – the hyena. The creatures are so elusive, it’s hard to tell just how big the clan is, but the other predators, including leopards and lions, are steering clear. So, to learn more about why the hyenas are so feared, Chris and wildlife cameraman Bob Poole use remote cameras to monitor their nearby den.

Walking Britain’s Lost Railways (C5, 8pm)

Rob Bell’s latest trip takes his along the 46-mile route of the Banbury and Cheltenham Direct Railway.

It’s a line that passes many quarries, which produced the famous Cotswold stone, and the presenter finds that while some are now abandoned, others are still supplying sites including Hampton Court. Rob also learns more about the history of the line, and finds that while it was never an express route – the hills made sure of that – it did open up the Cotswold’s landscape to visitors and established a new local tourism industry.

The Last Leg (C4, 10pm)

One complaint about satirical shows is that they all often feature the same guests. Well, that’s not true tonight as The Last Leg features someone who is less likely to crop up on Mock the Week – the one and only Shakin’ Stevens. Admittedly, he’s there to close the show with a festive musical appearance, but perhaps he can also be prevailed upon to join Adam Hills, Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker and guests comedian Joe Lycett and TV presenter Stacey Dooley to discuss the week’s headlines and weigh in on the question “is it ok?”

Big Zuu’s Christmas Eats (Dave, 10pm)

The host is joined by some mega musician friends including one of the UK’s biggest rappers AJ Tracey, grime MC JME with his sister and radio presenter Julie Adenuga and hip-hop musician Loyle Carner. Full of festive conversation, beautifully tuned Christmas carols and rap stars reminiscing, the group catch up around the dinner table while Zuu, helped by sous chef Hyder and chief taster Tubsey, serves up some Big Zuu Bissap, a V-Gang Gobi Christmas Curry, his take on a next level Christmas dinner and some mouth-watering desserts.

The Graham Norton Show (BBC1, regions vary)

Claudia Winkleman hasn’t just been working on Strictly Come Dancing lately – she’s also penned her debut book, Quite, which deals with ‘life, love and eyeliner’.

Here, she’ll be joining Graham to chat about it. Actress Nicola Coughlan is probably best known for her role in Derry Girls, but now she’s striking out in the American period drama Bridgerton, while comedian Lee Mack discusses the return of his long-running sitcom Not Going Out.

The music comes courtesy of McFly, who perform their current single Tonight Is the Night.
