The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SEVEN DAYS -

If you want spec­ta­cle on a grand scale... OLYMPICS 2012: CLOS­ING CER­E­MONY Sun­day, 8.45pm/9pm, RTÉ Two/BBC1

If this hugely am­bi­tious clos­ing cer­e­mony lives up to the stan­dard set by Danny Boyle’s as­ton­ish­ing open­ing cer­e­mony, Lon­don 2012 will surely go down as the most spec­tac­u­larly pre­sented Games ever.

If you want com­pet­i­tive cook­ing – and celebs... CELEBRITY MASTERCHEF Mon­day, 6.30pm, BBC2

John Torode and Gregg Wal­lace re­turn to wel­come the first four of 16 celebri­ties to the MasterChef kitchen. The con­tes­tants’ first chal­lenge: to do some­thing with an ex­tremely ugly fish (a gurnard). Con­tin­ues daily to Fri­day’s cook-off.

If you want a Ruth Ren­dell thriller... THIR­TEEN STEPS DOWN Mon­day, 9pm, UTV

This dark psy­cho­log­i­cal drama (con­clud­ing next week) stars Luke Tread­away as a strange young man ob­sessed with the mur­derer John Christie, and with a present-day su­per­model. A dan­ger­ous char­ac­ter, it’s not long be­fore he flips… Chan­nel 4’s re­cent re­al­ity se­ries and fol­lows the fraught prepa­ra­tions for the wed­ding of two of them, Max and Karen. Macdon­ald are the guests in a new run of Rob Bry­don’s lively and in­ven­tive chat show.
