Pick of the Day
Changing Ireland: My Big Idea, 8.30pm, RTÉ One
FoodCloud is one of this week’s Big Ideas and it’s working towards a world where no good food goes to waste.
At the FoodCloud Hub in Tallaght - one of three across Ireland - isTony, one of the delivery drivers. He’s loading his van for a Rescue Run with a combination of food from the hub and small daily donations from supermarkets that he’ll collect on his way.
The food then will be delivered to charities around Dublin, who will put them to good use.
Also tonight: Kilcock Men’s Shed, which has become a focal point of the local community. Alongside their woodwork and gardening, the men even have a choir that has performed around Ireland.
In the shed, we meet musical sisters Claire and Eimear Crehan, whose connection to the shed came through their late father.

Talk turns to the mischief and mayhem they have created, and Ollie gets emotional as he tells all about his recent romance and surprise engagement to long-time friend Gareth.
Elsewhere in SW3, Jamie and Habbs are back on track after their dramatic reconciliation in Buenos Aires. Could cohabiting be on the cards as they view a plush potential pad?
