Here are 5 TV shows you can't miss this week...


1. Women's Euro 2022 Final

Sunday 31st July at 4pm (kick-off 5pm) on BBC One


On Tuesday night, over 9m people at home witnessed England’s impressive 4-0 semi-final victory over Sweden in the Women's Euro 2022 semi-final and now the time has come for them to face Germany in the final.


Could the Lionesses bring football home? I think so!



2. Love Island: The Live Final

Monday 1st August at 9pm on ITV2


After eight weeks of what has been one of the best series of Love Island ever, the time has come to crown (Davide and Ekin Su) the winners. Competing for the title alongside favourites Davide and Ekin-Su, are Gemma and Luca, Andrew and Tasha, Dami and Indiyah and Adam and Paige.


Although currently, only Dami and Indiyah are definitely through to the final after being saved by their fellow islanders. The other four faced the public vote on Friday and on Sunday we'll find out which couple has just missed out on a place in that final.


As Laura Whitmore returns to the villa for one final time, she'll be catching up with this year's islanders before crowning the winner. But with £50,000 at stake, will this year's winners split the money or could we see the first ever steal?

3. Irma Vep

Tuesday 2nd August at 9pm on Sky Atlantic


Alicia Vikander stars in the new HBO drama Irma Vep as "Mira", an American movie star disillusioned by her career and a recent breakup, who comes to France to star as "Irma Vep" in a remake of the French silent film classic, Les Vampires.


Set against the backdrop of a lurid crime thriller, Mira struggles as the distinctions between herself and the character she plays begin to blur and merge. Irma Vep reveals to us the uncertain ground that lies at the border of fiction and reality, artifice and authenticity, art and life.
