Best on the Box
A touching Grand Designs follows an extraordinary couple trying to make the most of a bad situation. Royal Marine Captain Jon White lost his legs and right arm when he stepped on an explosive device while on duty in Afghanistan. When he returned home his house was no longer suited to his needs, so the pair were forced to build a new one – and that’s where the cameras come in. The architect’s plan is inspiring – glass walls, open space and a wing- like roof – but on a small budget they’re forced to enlist the help of charities, which plays havoc with the timeline. As always, Kevin McCloud ( pictured) offers his two cents.

This show which irreverently tackles the “big” issues tackles the story of the man with the 60kg scrotum. Wesley Warren Jr died earlier this year, after rising to notoriety when his medical condition n was revealed on a British documentary in 2013. The Soup investigates in its typically outrageous style whether his excess baggage is a help or hindrance. As always, it’s heavy with acerbic wit.
