The SBS man continues his chatshow of sorts with the Pitch Perfect star as his latest guest. Plus: Pooch Perfect. Here’s what to watch this evening
Ant Middleton & Rebel Wilson: Straight Talking 9pm, Sky One

Following his bromantic journey through Namibia with former One Direction member Liam Payne in 2019, SBS man Middleton continues his chatshow-cum-endurance format with the Pitch Perfect star Rebel Wilson. The pair touch down in Mexico for some buggy driving and deep-sea diving while taking in the sights. Middleton then puts his interrogation techniques to good use, talking to Wilson about her recent weight loss and her experiences of fame. Ammar Kalia

Pooch Perfect 8pm, BBC One

If your January is the dullest on record, gather your bubble and surrender to the joy of watching dogs having a blowdry.

Saving Lives at Sea 8pm, BBC Two

The windswept, wave-battered heroes of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution don’t lack for courage, but they could do with a little luck, too.

George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces 8pm, Channel 4

This Grand Designs for tiny home enthusiasts continues with George Clarke meeting Paul, who is restoring a Victorian circus wagon.

Death in Paradise.

Whisky Galore! (Alexander Mackendrick, 1949) 10pm, BBC Four

A lovely drop ... Whisky Galore!

This unlikely tale of a cargo ship running aground in the Outer Hebrides, bequeathing its 50,000 cases of whisky to the grateful islanders, is based on a real wartime incident. In Alexander Mackendrick’s hands it becomes a sublime Ealing comedy as the canny folk of Todday run rings round the Home Guard. Paul Howlett
