Jools Holland returns, The Bake Off continues, and there's a documentary about the flu that killed 50 million people . . .

Pick of the day

The Great British Bake Off, 8.00pm, Channel 4

This show is scarily addictive for so many people. It's Spice Week, which means a bitter end for at least one of the remaining bakers.

Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith are turning up the heat with a classic teatime favourite Signature, while there's a Technical that's one of the toughest of the series so far, as the bakers are tested with a tricky Arabian pastry.

Finally, they take on a fiddly Showstopper that promises to be anything but light work.

The Flu that Killed 50 Million, 9.00pm, BBC Two

As the Armistice bells rang out across the world in 1918 to celebrate the end of World War One, a silent killer made its way home with the soldiers - Spanish Flu.

This devastating global pandemic infected up to a third of the world’s population and killed more than 50 million people.

Now, using compelling eyewitness testimony from doctors, soldiers, civilians and politicians, and aided by dramatic reconstructions, this one-off special brings to life the terrifying onslaught of the disease.

Narrated by Christopher Eccleston, Jeremy Edwards (Holby City) plays Dr Basil Hood of the St Marylebone Infirmary.
