VICKI POWER

WHAT’S HOT TO WATCH TO­DAY

Daily Star - - TV GUIDE -

DESSERT comes first on the menu tonight in BRI­TAIN’S BEST HOME COOK (8pm, BBC1), when the con­tes­tants’ first task is to put their spin on a pud­ding. The Black For­est Gateau served up by one cook looks de­li­cious and should stand them in good stead to avoid the cook-off.

The next chal­lenge is to in­vent a sweet or savoury dish us­ing aubergine or tofu, al­though no­body would thank you for serv­ing aubergine for pud­ding. Those who don’t make the grade have one last chance to im­press the judges with their take on a clas­sic ori­en­tal dish. THERE’S more foodie ac­tion on MIL­LION POUND MENU

(9pm, BBC2), in which Fred Sirieix helps a pasta pro­pri­etor and a seller of chop­house clas­sics pitch their busi­ness ideas to in­vestors. THE fu­tur­is­tic drama HU­MANS (9pm, Chan­nel

4) con­tin­ues with more clashes be­tween real peo­ple and the ro­bots they in­vented.

Hu­man cham­pion of the so­called “synths” Laura Hawkins, asks Dr Neil Som­mer for his help in suss­ing out what top se­cret Oper­a­tion Bass­wood is all about, but his re­sponse sur­prises her. And com­puter ge­nius Mat­tie and Leo grow closer as he strug­gles to ac­cept that he’s re­ally a hu­man. FRED SIRIEIX is one busy guy, mak­ing his sec­ond TV ap­pear­ance of the night, here on FIRST DATES (10pm, Chan­nel 4), where more lovelorn can­di­dates pin their hopes for last­ing love on a blind date. It’s filmed with a light touch, mak­ing it fun to hang out with the sin­gle­tons as they ex­pe­ri­ence first im­pres­sions and ne­go­ti­ate awk­ward con­ver­sa­tions.

Tonight, hair­dressers Matt and Adele are paired up, and Le­ora hopes that Ben will be much nicer than the cocky types she usu­ally dates.
