Room to Improve, 9.30pm, RTÉ One

Architect Dermot Bannon is back with a brand new season featuring eight challenging and innovative new design projects. In the opening episode Avril and Andrew Wilson-Rankin have bought a property in Dublin's Dun Laoghaire but it’s as far from being a home, or even a house. Andrew and Avril’s dream home is a two-storey disused commercial lockup on a side street, hemmed in by public pavement on one side and double yellow lines on the other. It’s dark, dusty and completely uninhabitable.

Mr Selfridge, 9.00pm, UTV Ireland

The hugely entertaining period drama starring Jeremy Piven as the eponymous shop owner who revolutionized the London scene a century ago returns for a third season. It's 1918 as Harry Selfridge and his family are gathered for the funeral of his beloved wife Rose. As they say their tearful last goodbyes, a grief-stricken Harry wonders how he will ever get by without her.

Top Gear, 8.00pm, BBC Two

The world’s biggest car programme returns for what's threatening to be an explosive and extra-long run of brand-new programmes. In the first, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are in Russia for an incredible race across the vast and very beautiful urban landscape of St Petersburg. And the Star in the Reasonably Priced Car will be Ed Sheeran.
