The vote count in Northern Ireland is covered on BBC One, while Huw Edwards hosts the BBC Two coverage of the entire UK vote.

As well as meeting with some of Ireland's most dynamic millionaires, he'll also be looking for trends that have taken place over the last twenty years, which sectors have boomed and which have crashed - and he'll also make a few predictions about how to make millions in the future.

Discovering Film Alan Rickman, 8.00pm, Sky Arts & NOW TV

Here's a glance back at the career of the dearly-missed British actor Alan Rickman.

Graduating from RADA and beginning his career on stage, Rickman burst onto cinema screen with his role as Hand Gruber in Die Hard - widely regarded as one of the greatest villainous performances in big screen history.

In Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, his role as the Sheriff of Nottingham stole the show and even won him a BAFTA.

Rickman then took on several comedic roles in films such as Galaxy Quest and Love, Actually. It was in the Harry Potter franchise, though, where he introduced himself to his largest audience as the morally ambiguous Professor Snape.
