Pick of the Day

I Am Nicola, 10.00pm, Channel 4

I Am Nicola is the first in a female-led drama anthology series of stand-alone programmes, starring three of Britain's leading actors.

The first film in the series tells the story of a woman who's searching for a romantic ideal: Nicola (Line of Duty's Vicky McClure), who wants the perfect relationship but finds herself stuck in a dysfunctional and coercive relationship.

Nicola is a hairdresser who begins to tire of her daily routine of listening to her clients gush about special occasions, engagements and exciting holiday plans.

Her life feels lacklustre in comparison and when she expresses this to her partner, Adam (Perry Fitzpatrick), he takes her dissatisfaction personally.

They then become trapped in an endless cycle of arguments, guilt and reconciliation.

How the Middle Classes Ruined Britain, 9.00pm, BBC Two

Comedian Geoff Norcott (below) goes back to his working-class roots to explore a very peculiar kind of class war.

In the aftermath of the Brexit vote, he observes how the working class have become visible for the first time in generations, and to some extent feared by what he perceives as the significant, largely law-abiding, yet most-derided "avocado eating, Waitrose shopping" sector of society.

The self-proclaimed right-wing comedian, who grew up in a single-parent family on a council estate in south London, reveals the ways in which he thinks the middle class have had their way for too long.

Ending Tonight

The Big DIY Challenge, 8.30pm, RTÉ One

In this final episode, everyone featured in the series is a contender and there will be five categories – Best Inside Project, Best Outside Project, Best Upcycle Project, Best Small Project, and Best DIY Fail.

From the first four categories (not the Fail), the grand finalists who go up against each other for the title of Ireland’s Best DIY-er and the overall grand prize of €10,000.

Crashing, 10.05pm, Sky Atlantic

This autobiographical dramedy created by and starring Pete Holmes comes to an end after three engaging seasons of awkward and humiliating moments.

For the finale, struggling stand-up Pete gets what should be a huge break: major star John Mulaney wants Pete to open for him.

Mulaney plays a horrible version of himself and there’s another excellent cameo from Amy Schumer, who in the first of tonight’s two episodes rubs salt in Pete’s wounds.
