Millionaire’s Ex-Wives Club, 9.00pm, BBC Two

Gaining exclusive access to the hidden world of super-rich divorce, this intimate documentary follows ex-wives who went into battle with their exes, spending millions of pounds and years of their lives in the process.

For example, Michelle Young has clocked up 65 court hearings and 13 sets of lawyers in her crusade against her ex-husband Scot Young. Eleven years on, she hasn’t given up yet.

They had two children and lived a lavish lifestyle together, but the end came in a shocking phone call: it was claimed that Scot had not only lost his entire fortune overnight in a big Russian property deal, but also had a breakdown . . . and was having an affair.

Eventually Michelle was awarded £26m, yet to this day has never received a penny.

Kiri, 9.00pm, Channel 4

It’s part two of Jack Thorne's powerful and pretty compelling four-part drama about an abducted black girl, the eponymous Kiri (Felicia Mukasa), who was due to be adopted by a white foster family.

Tobi (Lucian Msamati) searches for his son Nate (Paapa Essiedu), the prime suspect in the case, and faces up to some uncomfortable truths about their relationship.

The witch-hunt is intensifying around social worker Miriam (Sarah Lancashire) who's under pressure to take the blame for what happened to Kiri.

On top of this, Kiri's foster family also find themselves in the media spotlight.
