What’s on telly tonight? Here the TV Times team of expert reviewers highlight the best shows on Thursday 26th July

Our Shirley Valentine Summer, 9pm, ITV

It’s the women’s second week sharing their luxury Naxos villa and they seem to have settled into the Greek way of life with some of them even trying to learn the language. But although they are apparently getting along well, there is some discord as Nancy Dell’Olio struggles to fit in with the rest of the group. A timely date arranged by the matchmaker takes her out of the villa and off to Athens. Aggie MacKenzie faces her paralysing fear of water by having swimming lessons – in the sea – while Lizzie Cundy reveals how her life as a footballer’s wife left her unfulfilled as she shares her dream of running her own restaurant.

Sick Note, from 10pm, Sky One

The return of the enjoyably dark comedy about slacker Daniel (Rupert Grint), who was misdiagnosed with cancer by dodgy Dr Glennis (Nick Frost). Since everyone was so nice after they heard about his illness, Daniel decided not to reveal the truth about his health – or what happened to best friend Ash, who was sleeping with his girlfriend. As the show returns, Daniel receives a visit from creepy online gaming friend “Will_5000’ (Dustin Demri-Burns), who sports a Phantom of the Opera-style mask because, he says, of a childhood disfigurement. And following a bizarre accident at the healthcare firm where Daniel works, a new boss – played by Lindsay Lohan – arrives. Rating: ***
