TV tonight: Rachel Parris is in the hot seat on Late Night Mash

Late Night Mash

10pm, Dave

Rachel Parris was a regular on The Mash Report before it was axed last year, to the chagrin of the many viewers who considered it Britain’s best attempt yet at a US-style late-night satire show. Thankfully, it was reborn on Dave shortly after and is about to begin its second (or sixth) series, with Parris taking the reins from Nish Kumar. The reliably fun format remains the same: guest comedians join the host to perform fake news reports and discuss topical issues. The real task is trying to fit it into an hour. Hollie Richardson


9pm, BBC One

This series, narrated by Christopher Eccleston, continues with its frank look at life on the NHS frontline. Tonight, paramedics Hayley and Joe arrive at a scene where someone has jumped off a bridge, while the tough reality of being a carer is shown by a woman looking after her 88-year-old husband. HR

All That Glitters: Britain’s Next Jewellery Star

9pm, BBC Two

Tonight’s first challenge tasks the contestants with making a spinning ring, the twisting of which can help relieve anxiety (although Katherine Ryan, the host, says she would prefer to be adorned in “spinster rings”). They then need to create a bespoke hairpin for Alice, an NHS nurse. HR

Football Dreams: The Academy

9pm, Channel 4

Tonight’s theme: pushy parents or pushing potential? We meet 11-year-old Shy, whose dad would love his son to be one of the first British Asian Premier League footballers. Plus, we witness the contradictory approaches of two mums with strong views on being “good football parents”. HR

The Rap Game UK

9pm, BBC Three

TV’s best talent contest – OK, that might not be saying much – continues into season four, with more tense challenges and unpredictable swings in status among the contestants. The wannabe MCs are split into two groups, each making a diss track about the other that is likely to be taken personally. Jack Seale


10pm, Sky Comedy

The return of the talent-stuffed paramedic comedy that is keen to leave you in stitches. At a rowdy Crystal Palace game, Wendy (Jane Horrocks) and Maleek (Samson Kayo) fret over their imminent tribunal, while, back at base, Lawrence (Julian Barratt) broods over his sizzling snog with badass boss Jo (Lucy Punch).
