    Best TV shows on TV tonight

    Celebrity Karaoke Club, 10pm, ITV2

    TV tonight Celebrity Karaoke Club

    Luke, Courtney, Scarlett, Tallia, David, Jess and Melvin

    An assortment of stars battle to be declared the Karaoke King or Queen in this fun new singalong series. Drag Race star and CBB winner Courtney Act, TV presenter Scarlett Moffatt, Ibiza Weekender’s David Potts, DJ Melvin Odoom, singer Tallia Storm, comic Luke Kempner and TOWIE’s Jess Wright are the first to enter the singing booth, but as this is karaoke, vocal skill isn’t as important as the ability to get the crowd going – just as well, in some cases! Don’t miss Scarlett and Courtney’s unforgettable rendition of Summer Nights from Grease…

    Grayson Perry’s Big American Road Trip, 10pm, C4

    Grayson Perry's Big American Road Trip

    Is the USA ready for Grayson Perry?

    Last year, Grayson Perry took a trip around the US (on a motorbike he customised himself, naturally) to explore the sources of friction across the nation: issues such as race, class, identity and economic opportunity. Tonight’s opening episode focuses on race, so Grayson begins his expedition in Atlanta, Georgia – often referred to as the nation’s ‘black capital’. Here, many residents are enjoying economic prosperity – the number of black households earning $200,000 or more has risen by 145% in the last 10 years – but centuries of prejudice are still having repercussions.

    Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted, 9pm, National Geographic

    TV tonight Gordon Ramsay: Uncharted

    Gordon makes a Norwegian delicacy

    ‘I want to move to Norway!’ proclaims Gordon as he tastes the scallop he has just harvested from the bottom of a cold fjord. The chef’s in Norway in December to brave the cold and sample some of the country’s finest cuisine. After his bracing dive for shellfish, he heads out with a reindeer herder before trying the local delicacy of fermented fish. The next meal is a culinary challenge even for Gordon and is not for the squeamish. The week finishes with a fabulous Christmas feast including reindeer stew and a decadent seafood soup.

    Best box set to watch

    Wallander, seasons 1-4, BBC iPlayer, Netflix

    TV tonight Wallander

    Sir Kenneth Branagh stars

    With Young Wallander currently streaming on Netflix, now is the perfect time to revisit the original BAFTA-winning series, which sees Sir Kenneth Branagh playing  the Swedish detective in later years when he’s an inspector. Branagh is excellent as the dedicated but troubled cop dealing with some very dark investigations in a superb crime drama.

    Best film to watch on TV tonight

    The Mountain Between Us, 9pm, Film4

    TV tonight The Mountain Between Us

    Kate Winslet and Idris Elba star

    Two strangers somehow survive a plane crash and set off together to find civilisation and safety in this 2017 romantic adventure. It’s winter, it’s snowing and the mountainous terrain does not make the going easy. There’s also a mountain to climb for the two talented actors playing photographer Alex (Kate Winslet) and brain surgeon Ben (Idris Elba) because, quite honestly, not an awful lot happens in this fairly formulaic romantic drama. Still, the Canadian scenery is breathtakingly photographed and the actors bust a gut to make it work. 

    Live sport

    • Snooker: European Masters 2.30pm & 7pm, Eurosport 2
