On the box: our top telly picks for the week


Harry at 30 – UTV, Tuesday at 8pm
The most eligible bachelor in the world (now Ryan Gosling is taken) turns the big three-oh this month, so UTV have made a documentary with contributions from his friends and army comrades to mark the big occasion. Wonder will they bring up the nekked partying in Vegas or the time he dressed up as a Nazi…?

Educating Joey Essex: Space Cadet – ITV2, Tuesday at 9pm
In tonight’s episode the former TOWIE star/complete eejit is sent to Space Camp to become an astronaut. And he also goes hunting for aliens, as you do. Must be great craic making this show.

Utterly Outrageous Celebrity Bodies – ITV2, Tuesday at 10pm
This countdown apparently celebrates “the extraordinary things stars have done to their bodies” – ?! So if you want to check out Courtney Stodden’s surgical enhancements or watch Kerry Katona as she undergoes liposuction then this is right up your street. Hmmm.

BIG – E4, Wednesday at 8pm
A kid goes to Funderland and wakes up the next day to find he has now become a 35-year-old Tom Hanks. Bizarre premise for a movie yet this is an absolute classic from the ‘80s as Tom gets to play with a gigantic toy piano and he also creates every youngsters’ dream apartment with arcade games, soda machines and a giant trampoline to boot!

The Good Wife – RTÉ One, Thursday at 11.05pm
Julianna Margulies just won her second Emmy for her role as Alicia Florrick in this absolutely addictive legal drama from the States. However fans be warned. If you’re following the series on RTÉ do NOT miss tonight as it is the most dramatic and shocking episode they’ve ever done. Be sure to have a box of Kleenex at the ready….
