Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over
The ever-curious, seemingly guileless Dooley moves in with “a wide range of extraordinary characters and families” in this new Weird Weekends-lite series. First up is a “thruple” made up of married couple Thomas and Cathy, and Cathy’s former workmate Nicole. While the trio prove more “normal” than Stacey expects – as she’s at pains to emphasise – will she truly understand their arrangement, from strip parties to Nicole’s relationship with Thomas and Cathy’s young son?

Breaker Morant 6.50pm, Movies4Men
This gritty Boer war drama tells the story of three Australian officers – Bryan Brown, Edward Woodward, Lewis Fitzgerald – who were court-martialled for executing prisoners.
