Trip Hazard: My Great British Adventure

Comic Rosie Jones undergoes a British TV personality’s rite of passage by presenting her debut travelogue, each week journeying with a celebrity pal to a new destination in the UK. Tonight the comedian, who has cerebral palsy, is joined by I’m a Celebrity queen Scarlett Moffatt for a jaunt around the Lake District. The pair take poetic inspiration from William Wordsworth’s former home before spending the night in a stable full of horses and trying their hands at making sausages. Ammar Kalia

It’s episode four of the ominous yet zippy comedy-thriller starring Kaley Cuoco, who is millions of miles away from her breakout role as Penny in The Big Bang Theory. Cassie discovers that Lionfish and the Sokolovs flew to Maine each week, but when she bags a slot working on the plane there’s a big surprise. Hannah J Davies

Hausen

9pm, Sky Atlantic

More condominium horror from a German series that is now gradually showing its teeth. Serious injury has befallen Juri, who realises the building is to blame and subsequently begins to wonder who used to live there. Ever the prosaic fixer, his caretaker dad Jaschek gets on with putting CCTV in. Jack Seale

Suffragette (Sarah Gavron, 2015), 6.50pm, Film4
Carey Mulligan, Oscar-nominated for the 2020 film Promising Young Woman, is an equally forceful figure in Sarah Gavron’s excellent drama about the fight for british women’s right to vote in 1912. Her laundry worker is inspired by a friend (Anne-Marie Duff) to join the campaign, but those in power are not easily swayed. Simon Wardell
