All Round to Mrs Brown’s, 9.15pm, BBC1

After last week’s frolics with EastEnders’ Danny Dyer and boxer Amir Khan, there are more laughs round at Mrs Brown’s tonight as the potty-mouthed matriarch is joined by Freddie Flintoff and Jason Manford – and their mums! Meanwhile, budding ‘entrepreneurs’ Buster and Dermot are joined on their Celebrity Tours by Fatima Whitbread and Jonnie Peacock. Rating: ****

How the Young Ones, 9.30pm, Gold

Do you remember the TV Times advert that featured in The Young Ones? Do you know who nearly played wide boy Mike? Have you heard about the mystery ‘fifth housemate’? All is revealed in this enjoyable one-off about the ground-breaking sitcom in which stars Alexei Sayle, Nigel Planer, Chris Ryan and Adrian Edmondson and co-writer Lise Mayer – then girlfriend of Rik Mayall – share memories. Rating: ****

The Biggest Weekend, from 4.30pm, BBC1/BBC2/BBC4/iPlayer

There’s no Glastonbury this year, but there’s still an excuse to sing at the top of your lungs! Graham Norton, Claudia Winkleman and Alex Jones guide us through this huge bank holiday event with coverage on BBC1, 2 and 4 and iPlayer (plus Radio 1, 2, 3 and 6 Music). Taking place in four venues – Swansea, Coventry, Belfast and Perth – there’s something for everyone, with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift and Sam Smith sharing the bill with classical stars including Evelyn Glennie and Nigel Kennedy. And watch out for the Strictly professionals, who team up with the BBC Concert Orchestra for something rather fab-u-lous. Rating: ****

 

More previews tomorrow.
