Prepare for a clash of the Titans as, for the first time this series, all remaining masked singers compete together – no more heats, no more head-to-heads, just all-out masked mayhem in a bid to win the all-important audience votes and secure a spot next week. Our all-star detective panel – Jonathan Ross, Davina McCall, Mo Gilligan, and Rita Ora – have been filling up their notebooks with clues and guesses, but can you suss the secret singers’ identities before they do?

Tonight, BBC2 is devoting a large portion of its schedule to the much-loved singer and actor who many thought should have been Time magazine’s 2021 ‘Person of the Year’ after she donated $1million to COVID vaccine research (in the event, the title went to Elon Musk). As well as a new collection of performance archive clips in Dolly Parton at the BBC, there is also a chance to see her Glastonbury ‘Legends’ appearance from 2014 (12.15am) and the excellent 2019 documentary Here I Am (9.30pm). We will always love you, Dolly…

For this week’s glimpse into how the other half lives, Sally Lindsay heads to Marbella to stay at the villa of Helen and Hans. This isn’t your average Airbnb Costa del Sol pad – it has an art collection that many galleries would envy, its own cinema and a two-tier cascade swimming pool. Sally also enjoys a spot of luxury out at sea when she goes sailing in a £2million yacht. Pass the champagne…

At the end of the third season of Netflix’s acclaimed money-laundering drama, we left Marty and Wendy Byrde (Jason Bateman and Laura Linney) in a very tight spot as drug cartel boss Omar Navarro (Felix Solis) informed them they would be working much more closely together from now on. Now, in the thrilling final season - split into two parts of seven episodes each, with the final seven to be released later this year - the big question is: can the Byrdes engineer their way out of their life of crime? Or is karma about to catch up with them in a big way?

"You’re not supposed to mourn someone when they’re still alive!" sighs US expat Tusker (Stanley Tucci) as he ponders how having early onset dementia will impact his relationship with his partner Sam (Colin Firth). Sam’s answer is to whisk Tusker off on a campervan tour of the Lake District which lets them see family, friends and some beloved old haunts for what is likely to be the final time. But Tusker has his own route planned… It’s a pleasure to be along for such an intimate, poignant ride.
