Boy George and Culture Club perform, there’s a countdown of TV’s top 10 LGBTQ+ moments, a specially invited audience, and a pre-recorded feature film starring Danny Dyer, intriguingly billed as “a cameo from the closet.” Joe also pulls out all the stops for one of his trademark stunts. Let’s say it’s MPs, Westminster and an impromptu statue…
McDonalds & Doddsseason 38 p.m., ITV
Sarah Parish and Jason Watkins played business rivals then lovers Cheryl Fairweather and Gavin Strong in the popular supermarket sitcom Sky lagging behind – but there is no love lost between their characters in this week McDonalds & Dodds mystery.

Also featuring hollington boardwalk‘s Rhashan Stone and EastEnders‘ Nitin Ganatra, when it comes to murder mysteries, it really is a cut above.
The Outlawsseason 29 p.m., BBC One
Despite the ominous thrill Rani clearly gets from running the communal gang’s drug empire with an iron rod, we’ve got our backs for her and the charming Ben as they chart their future together. Now, although the arrival of Ben’s recovering drug addict mother is unsettling, there are celebrations all around as Rani’s parents agree to support their food shack business, and, finally, enough money has been earned through drug dealing to pay off menacing Dean (Claes Bang). But their joy is short-lived when the scheme to launder drug money rumbles… Can offenders avoid jail time and, most importantly, make their final payment?

The list of terminalsFirst video
Prime Video has already brought action heroes Jack Ryan and Jack Reacher to the screen, and now there’s a new badass in an explosive thriller The list of terminals. The eight-part series stars Chris Pratt as Navy SEAL Commander James Reece, who we first meet planning a covert mission to kill a dangerous terrorist hidden in Syria. But the operation goes awry when his platoon is ambushed as he fights his way through a series of underground tunnels. Were the terrorists warned by a traitor in the United States? Back home, Reece is determined to uncover the truth, teaming up with journalist Katie Buranek (Constance Wu) in a bid to find out more. But as new evidence emerges, Reece discovers dark forces working against him.
Best movie to watch on TV tonight
rain man10:30 p.m., BBC One
Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise (currently breaking his own box office records in Top Gun: Maverick) stars in this gripping comedy-drama that won Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Actor (for Hoffman), Best Screenplay, and Best Director. Hustler Charlie kidnaps his autistic brother Raymond, who inherited most of their late father’s $3 million estate. But it’s not that simple… Cruise is good, but outclassed by Hoffman in a more flashy role.
