Rhys Stephenson has spent the last two weeks in the dance off, while Dan Walker avoiding the judges' vote has been controversial for some viewers - but at this late stage in the contest, anyone could end up in the bottom two.

It's a landmark moment at ITV as Piers Morgan presents his final ever Life Stories, which fittingly sees him sit down with friend and former colleague Kate Garraway, due to take over the show's reigns from him.

However, before she takes up the interviewer's seat, Garraway gets to tell her own story and that of her husband Derek Draper, the UK's worst-affected surviving COVID patient.

As she details the devastating effects on her family, it's sure to be a particularly emotional episode.

New Sunday night drama for BBC One sees an adaptation of Imran Mahmood's novel fill the schedule hole left by Showtrial.

A man standing trial for murder decides to fire his barrister during the case and represent himself, telling his truth rather than the version of events he was advised would play out best for him in court.
