This count­down of hits from the great­est-sell­ing solo artist of all time (first shown in 2013) looks back at 20 songs cho­sen by his estate and voted for in an ITV poll. Look out for tunes in­clud­ing Heart­break Ho­tel and Al­ways on My Mind, with singers in­clud­ing

Ear­lier, at 8.00pm, there’s an­other chance to catch Elvis and Me, which sees Joanna Lum­ley meet­ing Priscilla and get­ting an ex­clu­sive tour of Grace­land as she tries to find out more about the rock ’n’ roll star she idolised in the 1950s.
