Bill Bailey: Limboland (BBC1, 9pm)

Where else do you get a death metal version of Candle in the Wind and a dance version of the iPhone ringtone, as well as comparisons between Paul McCartney and One Direction, and a section on birdwatching? That’s right, at a Bill Bailey gig. This programme, recorded at Hammersmith Apollo, pre-lockdown, sees him perform his ‘best show for years’, and discuss Labour politics, defective toasters, an Arctic sleigh trip to the northern lights, and malfunctioning Skype calls, in between other trivial subjects and musical show-stoppers.

Caroline Flack: Her Life and Death (C4, 9pm)

For many of us, our enduring image of Caroline Flack is of her lifting the glitterball trophy after winning Strictly Come Dancing in 2014.

He believes she controls the killer and can stop it cutting its bloodthirsty swathe through the ships, but he merely ends up landing himself in trouble.

During its attack on Terror, Blanky suffers terrible injuries, and in the ensuing panic, Lady Silence makes good her escape.

DNA Journey (ITV, 9pm)

It’s not quite Who Do You Think You Are? but if last week’s opening episode featuring old mates Andrew Flintoff and Jamie Redknapp is anything to go by, ITV’s genealogy-themed series is entertaining, informative and well worth a look. This week, it’s the turn of Amanda Holden and Alan Carr to take centre stage. They travel across the country, learning about their ancestors as they go and meeting relatives they never knew existed. Among the highlights is Holden’s trip to a stately home in Cornwall and Carr’s visit to Erith in South East London, where he learns about his link to a pub with a colourful past.
