The Keith and Paddy Picture Show, 9.20pm, ITV
Steven Spielberg’s most successful movie – Jurassic Park – gets the bonkers but brilliant Keith and Paddy treatment. Wouldn’t the terrifying dinosaurs be even scarier if they had machine guns? We can’t think why Spielberg didn’t think of it first! There’s also a great guest cast, including Shaun Ryder as Jeff Goldblum’s character, dashing rock star scientist Ian Malcolm – watch out for the moment he shakes his maracas at a Tyrannosaurus rex. The ace Sian Gibson (Car Share) gets the role of Lex, who’s 11, as Keith and Paddy couldn’t be bothered with child actors so just gave the role to the smallest person they knew. ****
All Around to Mrs Brown’s, 9.20pm, BBC1
Get ready for more fun, games and celebrity chat as everyone’s favourite foul-mouthed Irish matriarch – played by Brendan O’Carroll – opens up her house again for a second series of the popular talk show. Joining Mammy tonight will be EastEnders favourite Danny Dyer – watching him cringe as his mum Christine dishes the dirt on her famous son is not to be missed! Boxing champion Amir Khan is also getting in on the fun, and Buster and Dermot are at one with nature as they’re joined on their Celebrity Tours by Kate Humble. Also this series, look out for Sting, rapper Shaggy and Geri Horner. Welcome back, Mrs Brown… we’ve missed you!
More previews tomorrow.
