TV tonight: Kate Garraway and Derek Draper’s gruelling road to recovery after Covid

The latest instalment of the couple’s exhausting story. Plus: RuPaul’s global drag queen contest. Here’s everything to watch this evening

Kate Garraway: Caring for Derek

9pm, ITV

“The person he is now, in many ways, is a stranger.” Kate Garraway finally welcomes her husband, Derek Draper, home after 374 days in hospital with Covid-19. In this follow-up to last year’s emotionally frank Finding Derek, they continue to share the reality of how the virus rocked their lives – despite this exhausting journey, there is hope and gratitude. Hollie Richardson

This Is Going to Hurt

9pm, BBC One

Always telling his story with equal measures of humour and heart, Adam is kept busy tonight with Jason Orange’s cousin in the labour ward, the loss of a patient who hates him and an awkward meet-the-parents situation. All the while, the hospital is crumbling, and an emergency caesarean still haunts him. HR

RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Versus the World

9pm, BBC Three

With Baga Chipz still flying the flag for Britain, this spin-off series sees drag queens from around the world compete against each other. In the fourth round, the queens must show off their best celebrity impressions, with Katie Price, Michelle Keegan and Clara Amfo joining the judging panel. HR

The Gilded Age

9pm, Sky Atlantic

If you can bear to make it past the seemingly endless opening titles again, the pleasant if slightly tepid period drama trots into its mid-season. Tonight, Nathan Lane guest stars as society gatekeeper Ward McAllister – over whom Bertha goes giddy trying to impress. HR

9.50pm, BBC One

The warm comedy continues to pack more awkward moments into its 10-minute episodes than should be allowed. As Josh and Fola bumble their way through bumping into each other on the street, Esther is excited about her school reunion. Zack, meanwhile, turns to Google in an attempt to make sense of his voyeuristic vase moment. Hannah Verdier

Mel Giedroyc: Unforgivable

10pm, Dave

Another trio of celebrities join the panel show that has sneakily monetised sitting around telling anecdotes. David Haye recalls making someone sick in a gym, Bill Bailey relates a tale about losing a dog on a mountain and Rosie Jones atones for her first brush with public disapproval. Jack Seale

Live sport

Uefa Champions League football: Chelsea v Lille 7pm, BT Sport 2. The last-16 first-leg tie from Stamford Bridge. Atlético Madrid v Manchester United is on Wednesday at 7pm.
