Here are some tips on what's worth watching on the box this weekend between now and Sunday night . . .

Pick of the weekend

Eurovision Song Contest, 8.00pm Saturday, RTÉ One & BBC One

Love it, hate it (or hate that it's being held in Israel), there's no denying that the Eurovision still has a massive stranglehold on a TV audience, even now.

With Irish involvement once again missing from the final - Sarah McTernan failing to get out of last Thursday's semi-final – it's more a case of sit back, relax and enjoy the show.

As ever, Emperor of the Eurovision Marty Whelan will be providing commentary. Let's hope, for his sake, that he managed to sneak in some Bailey's.

Will The Netherlands win it?
