Pick of the day
Peter Kay’s Car Share: The Finale, 10.00pm, BBC One
Fans of this superb show were left in dismay last year when Kayleigh (Siân Gibson) finally admitted her true feelings for Peter Kay's John, before stepping out of his car and seemingly out of his life for good when he refused to say how he felt.
This brand new episode will reveal just what happens next to John and Kayleigh. And the question every Car Share fans is asking is: will they finally get together?
When the show was announced last autumn Peter Kay said: "We were completely overwhelmed by the response and even though we've no plans to write a third series we knew we couldn't end the story there."

Set in the fictional present, the 80 year-old King Lear (Anthony Hopkins) divides his kingdom among his daughters, Goneril (Emma Thompson), Regan (Emily Watson) and Cordelia (Florence Pugh) - according to their affection for him.
Cordelia refuses to flatter him, so he banishes her. Having acquired power, Goneril and Regan expel their father from their homes. At the same time, Lear's prime minister, Gloucester (Jim Broadbent), is betrayed by his son Edmund (John Macmillan) and his other son, Edgar (Andrew Scott), is forced to go into hiding.
