The Lateish Show With Mo Gilligan

10pm, Channel 4

The raucous chatshow and one of the most chaotic and fun Friday late-night fixtures continues. Adrian Lester – whom we’ll see in Disney’s upcoming series The Ballad of Renegade Nell – will be joining in the action, along with the nicest chap in pop music, Eurovision’s Sam Ryder (the contest may be over for another year but this guy never stops), and Gilligan’s trusty house band the Compozers.

Hidden Treasures of the National Trust

9pm, BBC Two

There’s a focus on 20th-century treasures this week, starting with Paul McCartney’s mid-terrace family home in south Liverpool (he and John Lennon wrote I Saw Her Standing There in the living room). Next, Dudmaston Hall near Birmingham is a 17th-century mansion that boasts a modern art gallery with works by Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. HR

Sister Boniface Mysteries

9pm, Drama

An affectionate parody of Blue Peter kicks off season two of this cosy 1960s-set whodunnit starring Lorna Watson as a sleuthing nun. When the overbearing producer of kids’ TV show Jolly Roger is found dead, Sister Boniface must grill a trio of presenters while also keeping tabs on a parrot called Poopdeck Pete. Great fun.

Black Ops

9.30pm, BBC One

Katherine Kelly guest stars as Kirsty in this week’s episode of the cop caper – was Clinton dating her or was she also part of the secret mission? Dom and Kay are adamant it’s the latter, and beg her for help over banoffee cronuts. Meanwhile, Clinton’s body has been found on Walthamstow Marshes. HR

The Chris & Rosie Ramsey Show

10.40pm, BBC One

The husband-and-wife duo and podcasters continue their warm, low-stakes chatshow featuring other well-known couples. Come for the background TV vibe, stay for the cringe-inducing audience confessions of Please Keep Me Anonymous. Hannah J Davies


11.25pm, BBC One

After a blazing start, the comedy-drama about a teen mum in Sydney has, in its third season, settled down into an undemanding yarn. Relationships and friendships, old and new, now cause Oly (Nathalie Morris) to question what sort of adult she wants to be when she’s not parenting. Jack Seale
