Regular viewers will know that Sahira and Hanssen go way back, so it will be interesting to see where this story goes as Sahira is torn between her oldest friend and her own flesh and blood.

Does Cheryl know the truth about the missing money?

The Woodvale Kennels’ lottery syndicate are on the hunt for their missing £27m but without the ticket – and newsagent Frank AWOL – how can they prove that they won the jackpot? Keeley and the gang tell Denise from Mercury Millions they’re the real lottery winners, and urge her to check with Cheryl (Gaynor Faye) from the newsagent  where they bought the ticket. With millions on the line, the syndicate know they’re going to have to track down Frank themselves to find out what’s become of their winnings. Can the gang and Cheryl team up to find Frank – not to mention the cash?

How are John Bishop’s baking skills?

The final four celebrities enter the tent; who out of TV and radio presenter Anneka Rice, comedian John Bishop, former Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle and presenter Ade Adepitan will impress Prue and Paul enough to win the last coveted apron? The signature challenge is decorative choux buns, followed by a tricky technical to make 12 financier cakes, so called because they look like gold bars, and finally, the showstopper – a cake inspired by something on their bucket list…

TV tonight Bates Motel

Best film to watch on TV tonight

Deep Impact, 6.45pm, Film4

The special effects play second fiddle to the human drama in this excellent apocalyptic disaster movie about a comet that is on a collision course with Earth – indeed, the real action only materialises later on in the movie. Morgan Freeman, as the US President, anchors an appealing cast that includes Elijah Wood, Téa Leoni, Robert Duvall and Vanessa Redgrave. The film is full of gut-wrenching moments of heroism and sacrifice.
