Love Island

9pm, ITV2

It may be a show stacked with bronzed bodies, but ITV2’s sybaritic reality juggernaut recently claimed an unexpected gold, squirting suntan lotion at The Real Full Monty and kicking sand in the face of Celebrity Hunted to win the Bafta in the eagerly contested best reality and constructed factual category. No surprise, then, that this fourth series has a bit of swagger to it, returning for a jumbo eight-week run of hookups and fallouts between youthful hotties kettled in a Mallorcan villa. Presenter Caroline Flack looks on. Graeme Virtue

My Dream Home

7pm, W

UK fixer-upper property shows have declined since the Sarah Beeny era. The solution? Look to America, where twins Drew (estate agent) and Jonathan (contractor) find and fix houses. This series starts in Nashville with musician Nicole and her brother Matt, who buy a place full of grim surprises. John Robinson

Suffragettes with Lucy Worsley

8.30pm, BBC One

Dressed in period gear, Worsley has never been on zestier form than in this brilliant, unflinching and, frankly, exciting documentary about the pivotal years of the suffragette movement. That it follows so soon after the Irish women’s Home to Vote campaign gives it particular piquancy. Sophie Harris


9pm, BBC Two

Return of the historical drama. Our return to the court of Louis XIV finds the rambunctious ruler in celebratory mood following France’s victory over the Protestant Dutch. A defeated Emperor Leopold of Hungary is invited to Versailles for a slice of Tarte Humble, but the embattled emperor has other plans for his visit. Mark Gibbings-Jones

The Queen’s Coronation in Colour

9pm, ITV

If you are not already royaled out, this 65th anniversary programme hosted by Alexander Armstrong celebrates the moment Queen Elizabeth II came to the throne in 1952. As well as colour footage, there is also input from the likes of Trevor McDonald and Prince Michael of Kent. Hannah J Davies

I Was There

10pm, BBC Four

Kate Adie recalls her most celebrated broadcasting experience by looking back on the Tiananmen Square massacre of June 1989, during which she was wounded. The film also doubles as a brisk – if somewhat cursory – history of China in the period leading up to the massacre and in the subsequent years. Phil Harrison

Film choice

Django Unchained, 10pm, 5Star

The Tarantino Kid’s first western has Jamie Foxx’s slave, Django, teaming up with a bounty hunter (Christoph Waltz) to rescue Django’s wife (Kerry Washington) from a monstrous plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio). An expert, eccentric blend of blaxploitation and spaghetti western tropes. Paul Howlett
