Pick of the Day

Dr Eva's Great Escape, 9.35pm, RTÉ One

If this two-parter is even half as cringe as the first run of shows on this topic, it will be unmissable TV.

Five years ago, weight-loss expert Dr Eva Orsmond and her increasingly burdened husband Wyatt sold their Wicklow home to start a pretty daft adventure in Portugal.

When we last saw Wyatt and Eva, the couple had just thrown a party to celebrate the completion of all major construction at their Portuguese hotel - a party that Eva did not attend.

Despite this, the couple were determined they would be welcoming guests in the Summer of 2020. After nearly three years of surmounting endless building and budget crises they needed to.

But a global pandemic and endless lockdowns combined to change all that.

Tonight's opener picks up where we left off, following the couple from the fall out of the ill-fated party to the never-ending highs and lows and lockdowns which lay ahead.

With the clock ticking on when they have to start paying back their huge loans, the couple have no choice but to open the hotel's front door as soon as possible.

As a life-long lover of double-decker buses, I’ll lap this up. Maybe you’d like it too.
