Lego Masters (C4, 8pm)

re­main­ing three chefs face Mar­cus’ test – to cook a cau­li­flower steak with two cau­li­flower gar­nishes and a nut but­ter. Fi­nally all six par­tic­i­pants can re­deem any ear­lier mis­takes when they cook their own sig­na­ture dish.

Melvin Odoom presents a fresh run of the con­test to find Bri­tain’s best ama­teur Lego builders, as teams aged nine and up are given ac­cess to a room full of the tiny bricks. They are chal­lenged to come up with all man­ner of mod­els to put their cre­ativ­ity, con­struc­tion skills and imag­i­na­tions to the test. De­sign ex­ec­u­tive Matthew Ash­ton re­turns to as­sess their ef­forts and is joined by new reg­u­lar judge, en­gi­neer Fran Scott.

She’s 82 and He’s 39: Big Age Gap Love (Chan­nel 5, 10.15pm)

The first of two doc­u­men­taries about peo­ple in age-gap re­la­tion­ships in­tro­duces view­ers to Andy and Beth (47 and 19), who had to move away from their home town af­ter dis­ap­prov­ing fam­ily and friends learned about their re­la­tion­ship. Laurence (62) and Sam (26) dis­cuss how they came out twice – once for be­ing gay and again for be­ing in an age-gap re­la­tion­ship.

WED­NES­DAY Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs (STV, 8pm)

This week at Bat­tersea Dogs and Cats Home, Paul O’Grady at­tempts to nurse back to health the most badly in­jured dog he has ever seen, a saluki. As part of his re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion, Paul takes him to a re­tire­ment home where the dog is show­ered with some much-needed love. Mean­while, Paul tries to find a home for an el­derly, den­tally-chal­lenged Shih Tzu, and he is also faced with the prospect of de-fleaing a stray York­shire ter­rier puppy.

The Ap­pren­tice (BBC1, 9pm)

As the sixth week of the con­test un­folds, the can­di­dates are chal­lenged to de­vise a mar­ket­ing cam­paign for a new bud­get air­line, in­clud­ing mak­ing their own 30 se­cond ad­vert for tele­vi­sion, and de­sign­ing both a dis­tinc­tive brand and a uni­form for staff. Cre­at­ing an ad­vert for a busi­ness air­line on board an air­craft brings dis­as­trous results for one team, and both teams strug­gle when they have to pitch their cam­paign to in­dus­try ex­perts. Back in the board­room, Lord Su­gar de­cides which can­di­date will be leav­ing the com­pe­ti­tion.

Dark Heart (STV, 9pm)

DI Will Wagstaffe and his staff in­ves­ti­gate the mys­te­ri­ous death of a young nurse on the London Un­der­ground. While CCTV re­veals the vic­tim flee­ing an in­vis­i­ble as­sailant, foren­sics find a DNA link to a miss­ing teenager pre­sumed dead for seven years. Aided by his new team DS Rob Mul­lan, DC Ray Monk, DC Annie Webb and pathol­o­gist Dr Luke Paul, Will un­earths a bond of se­crets and be­tray­als that leads him straight into the dark un­der­belly of the city.
