Best TV shows on TV tonight

Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer, 9.15pm, BBC1

TV tonight Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer

Maya, Peter and Alex bring back the summer

Whether you enjoy following Wimbledon tennis or the Glastonbury Festival on TV, it’s safe to say this summer will be quite different. Former England striker Peter Crouch joins Maya Jama and Alex Horne to try to make up for what we’re missing, from the Olympics to the Euros. Expect fun, celebrity guests and gigs from musicians’ gardens as the series gets underway – and watch out for Alex’s fun-loving Horne Section! 

★★★★ SMA

Michael McIntyre's Big Laughs, 8.15pm, BBC1

Well, we certainly could all do with some big laughs right now – and this series featuring the best bits from Michael McIntyre’s Big Show delivers. Tonight, in two of Michael’s favourite Send to All segments, he orders burgers with all the trimmings for everyone, using Holly Willoughby’s phone, while Jamie Oliver looks distinctly uncomfortable when a text meant for wife Jools ‘accidentally’ is sent to all of Jamie’s contacts. Meanwhile, Judge Rinder is ‘a little bit enraged’ to be the subject of the Midnight Game Show…

★★★ JP

The Masked Singer US, 4.35pm, ITV

The bonkers world of The Masked Singer is back for a second series of the US version and it’s just as wild as ever, with a brand new array of famous faces singing inside some seriously wacky outfits. There’s a strange-looking Leopard in a ballgown, a seven-foot-tall Thingamajig and a Butterfly that could give children nightmares! Ken Jeong, excitable panellist on the British version earlier this year, is joined by Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy and Nicole Scherzinger, while Nick Cannon hosts. 

★★★ HD

Best box set to watch on TV tonight

The White Princess, one season, UKTV Play

TV tonight The White Princess

Jodie Comer is The White Princess

Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer steps back in time for this epic historical drama based on Philippa Gregory’s 2013 novel of the same name. Comer stars as Elizabeth of York, whose 1486 marriage to Henry VII (played by Jacob Collins-Levy) unites the houses of Lancaster and York and effectively ends the War of the Roses. However, their union sets the scene for power struggles, love, betrayal and political clashes – particularly among the mothers.

Best film to watch on TV tonight

Moana, 5.50pm, BBC1

Disney once again delivers a princess-themed animated musical that will delight adults as well as youngsters. The setting is ancient Polynesia, where sparky Moana sets off on an oceanic quest to save her people with the help of a reluctant demi-god (Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson). The songs are catchy, the visuals are imaginative and the sharp script creates characters to care and root for. Rollickingly good fun.
