Last Laugh in Vegas, 9pm, ITV
Nine of the UK’s best-loved, battle-hardened performers get to fulfil a lifelong dream as they’re given one last shot at putting on a spectacular show in the variety capital of the world: Las Vegas! Comedy duo Cannon & Ball, entertainer Bernie Clifton, comedian Mick Miller, pianist Bobby Crush, all-rounder Kenny Lynch, Sixties idol Jess Conrad, singer Anita Harris, and actor and comedian Su Pollard will be filmed 24/7 as they live together, explore Vegas and rehearse for their one-night-only show (which will air on ITV3 at the end of the four-part series) at The Orleans Hotel & Casino. Will any of our showbiz legends get stage fright? Rating: ****
The Great Celebrity Bake Off, 8pm, C4
The final four celebrities tie on their aprons and enter the iconic Bake Off tent to put their mixing, measuring and making skills to the test. Hoping to impress judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith – and, more importantly, raise lots of cash for Stand Up to Cancer – are comedians Alan Carr and Aisling Bea, Paralympian Kadeena Cox and former Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher. The signature challenge is all about magnificent muffins, while the technical task has a pastry element that could leave a few celebs with a soggy bottom… Finally, their showstopper cake needs to get noticed for all the right reasons to win the last celebrity “star baker” crown of 2018.

Everest: World’s Greatest Mountain, 9pm, C5
Everest kicks off a new series exploring the planet’s highest peaks, from the geography that created them to the stories of the pioneers who sought to conquer them. Everest tells its fascinating story, including Edmund Hillary’s successful climb to the summit in 1953 up to the horrific events of April 2015 when an earthquake killed thousands of climbers on its most deadly day to date.
