There’s a profile of convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, Champions League football from Tallaght Stadium, Cooking with the Stars, and the return of Aussie dramedy Five Bedrooms . . .

Pick of the Day

Ghislaine Maxwell: Then Making of a Monster, 10.00pm, Channel 4

This documentary profiles the convicted sex trafficker, who’s gone from socialite to cellmate through her association with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

The story’s being told over three nights, beginning by delving into her lavish childhood in the shadow of a tyrannical father - newspaper baron Robert Maxwell - and examining if this affected the woman she was to become.

Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell

Her father's death left the family penniless and ostracized, but Ghislaine's move to New York in the early 1990s, and association with a mysterious money manager, enabled her to make a new start.

But at what price?

Live UEFA Champions League, 7.00pm, RTÉ2

European football is back in Tallaght Stadium as Ireland's representatives Shamrock Rovers face Hibernians (Kick-off 7.30pm) in the Champions League qualifiers.

Shamrock Rovers' Roberto Lopes

Peter Collins presents as the Hoops take on the Maltese champions. If they make it through, their likely opponents in Round Two are Bulgarian champions Ludogorets.

Another full house in Dublin 24 seems likely and the Hoops start as clear favourites – but several key players, including the talismanic Jack Byrne, are missing through injury.

With the Champions Path spreading across the three European competitions, a win here would guarantee Rovers at least a play-off place for the Europa Conference League. So there’s a lot riding on this tie.

Cooking with the Stars, 9.00pm, Virgin Media One

Starring Love Island contestant Maura Higgins (above) and chef Clodagh McKenna, this show does exactly what the title suggests.

Eight celebrities are paired with professional chefs who mentor, teach and – hopefully - take them from passionate amateurs to restaurant-level cooks.

Each week, the celebrities try to out-cook their rivals and present dishes for judgement by the other mentor chefs.

The bottom two face a cook-off, which all the mentors then judge blind.

Will the celebrity’s greatest supporter unwittingly become their worst critic and vote for their protégé to leave the competition?

Five Bedrooms, 9.35pm, RTÉ2

The Australian dramedy - starring Kat Stewart, Stephen Peacocke, Doris Younane, Katie Robertson and Roy Joseph – about five people at different times of their lives begins its third season.

With the entire house depending on him, the opening episode sees Ben launching himself as a B&B accommodation provider.

Then, in the second episode at 10.30pm, Liz returns from the UK and Harry realises his life is at a standstill.

Freddie Flintoff’s Field of Dreams, 8.00pm, BBC One

In this new series, Freddie Flintoff (below) is determined to prove anyone can play cricket whatever their background.

Here he sets out to turn a group of lively teenagers from his home-town of Preston in Lancashire into a decent competitive team.

These lads have never picked up a bat before, yet in just a few weeks they will be facing teams who have been playing together for years.

There is a lot to learn in a short space of time – but of course, not everything goes to plan.

As panic took hold, people came to understand the real, growing and urgent nature of today's nuclear threat.

24 Hours in Police Custody: The Murder of Rikki Neave

Concluding the investigation into the 1994 murder of six-year-old Rikki Neave.

Fifteen years after Rikki's mother was cleared of his murder following a flawed police investigation, a team of dedicated officers from the Major Crime Unit of Cambridgeshire police were authorised to begin a fresh investigation.

Analysis of the evidence put a new suspect, James Watson, who was 13 at the time of the killing, together with Rikki on the day of his disappearance.

But despite a forensic breakthrough, Watson presented the officers with a conundrum that made it difficult to prove the case against him.
