1. Cold Feet
Monday 21st January at 9pm on ITV
After hearing some harsh home-truths from Matt, Adam seeks counselling in the form of Drama Therapy and ends up acting out scenarios but struggles to see the merit in it. As the twins’ 18th birthday approaches, Karen’s still grappling with parenthood. Baffled by the constant stream of packages arriving for Ellie, she is appalled when she learns how Ellie’s coming by them. Karen turns to Adam for help, but struggling with being a single parent himself, he doesn’t know what to suggest. Initially, that is. Pete takes Evan on as a cause; he saved his life, now he wants to save his soul. Jenny grapples with her secret, despite it being harder and harder to keep it to herself. Instead of living the high life, David struggles with the emasculation of being a kept man. Nikki tries to be understanding but as tensions increase, their relationship begins to falter.
2. Two Doors Down
Monday 21st January at 10pm on BBC Two
For this week's episode of Two Doors Down, the action moves from the Baird house to the hospital. And as if the NHS needs any more challenges, Christine now stress-tests nursing staff with a hospital stay.
When Beth and Cathy drop Christine off at the hospital, Cathy manages to slip away whilst poor Beth doesn’t get off so lightly and finds herself committed to a post-op visit. Returning with Christine's long list of supplies, instead of finding her sore and exhausted after surgery, Beth and Eric find Christine sleeping off her dinner. The operation has been postponed until the following morning.
As nurse Heather weathers Christine’s demands, Colin arrives, followed by Michelle and Alan and the ensuing group discussion leaves Christine very worried about her chances of survival.
3. The National Television Awards 2019
Tuesday 22nd January at 7:30pm on ITV
Is it just me or do The National Television Awards come around quicker and quicker each year? It seems like only yesterday since Doctor Foster and of course Ant & Dec dominated the wins.
This year, Dermot O'Leary returns to host one of the biggest nights in telly, live from the O2 in London. One of the most talked-about gongs up for grabs is the award for TV presenter, which has been won 18 years in a row by Ant & Dec, but will there be a new name on the trophy this year?
A new award for 2019 is New Drama which sees Bodyguard go up against Killing Eve, A Discovery of Witches, Girlfriends and The Cry.

On Who Do You Think You Are? Danny Dyer discovered he was descended from King Edward III but in this new two-part series Danny uncovers an ever bigger family tree with even more royal and aristocratic ancestors.
Now, Danny’s delving into the lives of his royal and noble forebears to find out how they lived, immersing himself in their pursuits, passions and lifestyles. From the Vikings to the Tudors, Danny dresses, eats and lives his way through his family tree.
In the first of two parts, Danny kicks off his journey by eating sheep’s tongue and fighting like his Viking 35 x great-grandfather Rollo. Following in the footsteps of his ancestor William the Conqueror, Danny tries his hand at hunting on horse and foot, Norman-style.
