Around 10 mil­lion view­ers are ex­pected to tune in for the live BGT fi­nal – that would be three mil­lion more than The X Fac­tor fi­nal last year. In Sun­day’s show, 10 fi­nal­ists – and po­ten­tially two wild cards – will bat­tle it out for the £250,000 prize and a spot at the Royal Va­ri­ety Per­for­mance in Novem­ber. Who will it be?

last week’s first episode of this adap­ta­tion of Mar­garet At­wood’s ter­ri­fy­ingly dystopian novel ended with Of­fred (Elisabeth Moss) vow­ing to sur­vive – and be­ing warned by Of­glen (Gil­more Girls’ Alexis Bledel) that there’s a spy in her house­hold. The two hand­maids have fi­nally formed a bond, but is Of­glen to be trusted? One of the other hand­maids later gives birth in a beau­ti­fully filmed but ut­terly creepy scene (imag­ine an episode of One Born Every minute be­ing taken over by The League of Gen­tle­men), and even the scene of the new mother breast­feed­ing her baby while singing a lul­laby is filled with fore­bod­ing.

The Hand­maid’s Tale con­tin­ues to be un­set­tling but bril­liant TV.
