Tonight's top telly includes the final episode of Davy's Toughest Team, David McWilliams' Ireland looks at property, Jamie Oliver returns, and for reality TV fans there’s Below Deck Mediterranean . . .

Pick of the Day

Davy's Toughest Team, 9.35pm, RTÉ One

This new series has had a very timely feel to it, as Clare hurling legend Davy Fitzgerald has been tasked with motivating seven men with uncertain futures to trek to the base camp of Mount Everest.

The young men are grappling with various issues such as drug addiction, isolation, homelessness, unemployment and mental health challenges, so rising to this challenge will do their self-esteem a lot of good.

Last week’s show looked at this time last year when the country was placed into Covid-19 lockdown for the first time.

It became clear by July that the trip to Mount Everest would not go ahead and Davy had to break the news to his devastated team.

In tonight’s finale, the group prepares to scale Carrauntoohil, but there is a setback as Mikey suffers a knee injury that may prevent him from completing the challenge.

Jamie: Keep Cooking Family Favourites, 8.30pm, Channel 4

Jamie Oliver returns to demonstrate more recipes for simple, affordable and delicious meals, from quick and tasty dinners to useful staples to add to regular repertoires.

He begins reinventing the roast chicken by combining it with the margherita pizza - it sounds appalling, but you’d have to give him a chance to see how it works out.

Jamie also takes inspiration from one of his family's favourite takeaway dishes to create a prawn-toast toastie (see below) served with sweet chilli sauce and a quick cucumber pickle.

This week, Claire Byrne is joined by Health Minister Stephen Donnelly.

Cornwall: This Fishing Life, 9.00pm, BBC Two
