What’s On Tv Tonight? Shows To Watch On Thursday 15 February From Striking Out To Death In Paradise



WHAT can’t you miss on TV tonight? Our guide to the must-see shows…

Striking Out, 9pm, 5 Select

5Select Striking Out: If it’s an easy watch you’re after, you can’t go wrong

New channel 5Select’s flagship legal drama follows Dublin-based solicitor Tara Rafferty’s (Amy Huberman, right) chaotic professional and private life after she discovers her husband-to-be in bed with another woman… on the night of her hen do!

To keep her mind off her heartache, she throws herself into trying to save the career – and marriage – of a TV presenter who’s been caught on camera in a compromising position at a sex club.

Neil Morrissey also stars as Tara’s Senior Counsel and closest ally Vincent Pike.

The plot is predictable at times and far-fetched at others, but if it’s an easy watch you’re after, you can’t go wrong.

Death In Paradise, 9pm, BBC One

BBC Death in Paradise: A killing where the perpetrator hands himself in the next day…

A killing where the perpetrator hands himself in the next day doesn’t exactly make for compelling TV, but of course there’s more to this week’s dose of death in Saint Marie.

DI Mooney (Ardal O’Hanlon, right) finds the victim clutching a peanut, which wasn’t in his hand when he was bludgeoned to death. Intriguing.

Married At First Sight, 9pm, Channel 4

C4 Married at First Sight: Copper Stephanie’s (right) arranged marriage to surveyor Ben (left) shows plenty of promise Married at First Sight returns with four new singletons bravely tying the knot with a stranger

None of the marriages from the first two series of this social experiment have gone the distance, but we have high hopes for at least one of the new couples as series three begins.

The Job Interview, 10pm, Channel 4

C4 The Job Interview: You’ll be rooting for certain candidates but also chuckling at the show’s brutal editing

It’s one of life’s most nerve-racking experiences, so it’s no surprise that job interviews make such absorbing TV.

Tonight, Virgin Trains are seeking someone to manage an on-board shop, and cosmetics company Ciaté London need a social media assistant.

You’ll be rooting for certain candidates but also chuckling at the show’s brutal editing – as unlucky interviewees leave, the lift informs them they’re “going down”.

Children Who Kill, 9pm, ITV

ITV Children who Kill: Is Susanna trying to outdo breakfast buddy Piers Morgan in the hard-hitting documentary stakes?

Susanna Reid (left) heads to America to interview killers such as Josh Phillips (right), who committed murder as a child and will die in jail.

She also talks to victims’ families, giving a balanced outlook of the crimes.

Gogglebox Siblings Pete And Sophie Sandiford Pay Tribute To Leon Bernicoff




It’s the show that’s made stars of couch potatoes watching telly.

And siblings Sophie and Pete Sandiford, who made their debut last year, still can’t believe their luck to have joined the Gogglebox family.

“It’s been one big pinch-me moment,” says Sophie, 22, a shop-window dresser when she’s not filming.

“We can still pop out for milk, but I can always tell when we’re on telly because my phone buzzes with new Twitter followers.”

“We’re still gobsmacked that we’re on the show,” adds Pete, 24, who works in insurance.

“A woman came up to me saying me and Soph were ace – when people take the time to do that, it means a lot.”

The pair, from Blackpool, love hanging out at each other’s houses.
“I’m always round Pete’s, feet up, watching the box,” laughs Sophie. “We’re fans of SAS: Who Dares Wins. That process really draws you in.”

C4 Gogglebox: Leon, pictured here with wife June passed away last December

“I think I’d smash it if I went on that,” reckons Pete.

“No you wouldn’t,” adds Sophie. “Sorry to disappoint you, but no!”

As Gogglebox returns, Leon Bernicoff – who died last December – his wife June and their often funny, always sweet commentary of the week’s TV will sadly be missing.

“Leon was the Grandfather of Gogglebox, the main man,” says Pete.

“He’s a character who will never be replaced,” reflects Sophie. “We’ll all miss him dearly.”

When Does The Walking Dead Season 8 Start? Uk Release Date, Cast And Spoilers




THE Walking Dead are upon us once more as the hit zombie-thriller leaves more death in its wake in the eighth season

Negan and Rick might be braced for war but there are some others out there that could make life very difficult for our favourite survivors…

Winter is coming, and by winter we mean war.

When does The Walking Dead air in the UK?

The second half of The Walking Dead season 8 continues on UK screens on February 26 at 9pm on Fox.

You can watch Fox if you have a Sky subscription or if you have a Now TV account.

What will happen in The Walking Dead season 8?

The latest series of The Walking Dead is likely to be one of the most explosive in the show’s history.

The premiere is going to pick up right where the season 7 finale ended, with Alexandria, The Kingdom and The Hilltop Colony declaring war on Negan.

In a total twist on the premiere from Season 7, where Negan destroyed all hope within our favourite characters, season 8 will start with something more hopeful.

Negan no longer has control and it becomes more plausible that his tyranny will not last forever. This opening episode could be the one where we get the old Rick Grimes back.

On the premiere, Andrew Lincoln (who plays Rick Grimes) said: “We are going to have to come and bring one of the greatest episodes we’ve ever attempted, and we’re going to start the season with it. And, it will be the hundredth episode, which is one of the greatest.”

Who’s in The Walking Dead cast?

Rick Grimes is revitalised and back to his former self.

Andrew Lincoln

Andrew Lincoln, 44, is a British actor who is by now best known for his role as Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead.

He first entered the public realm of consciousness as one of the favourite soppy-hearted, love-sick fools on Love Actually where he played carol music and told Keira Knightley that he loved her.

He got married to Gael Anderson in 2006 where Chris Martin and Gwenyth Paltrow’s daughter served as a flower girl. They have two children together – a son and daughter.

Daryl Dixon will definitely be lining Negan up in his sights for what he did to Alexandria.

Norman Reedus

Norman Reedus is an American actor who is essentially now completely synonymous with the character Daryl Dixon.

The Walking Dead was not his first rodeo, in fact he had been building up quite the career having acted in Guillermo del Toro’s Mimic as well as Blade II, American Gangster, 8mm and The Boondock Saints.

Since The Walking Dead Norman’s career has gone from strength to strength.

He is currently working with Guillermo del Toro again, along with legendary Hideo Kojima, on PS4 game Death Stranding.

Alamy Maggie Greene has become something of a leader among her people since the death of her husband Glenn.

Lauren Cohan

Lauren Cohan is best known for her role on The Walking Dead but she’s also had recurring roles on Supernatural, Chuck and The Vampire Diaries.

The actress graduated with BA in Drama and English Literature at the University of Winchester before she embarked on her Walking Dead adventure.

Interestingly, she acted alongside Jeffrey Dean Morgan as the Martha Wayne to his Thomas Wayne, mother and father of Batman, Bruce.

Negan will be looking to give Lucile a few people to play with.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, 51, is an American actor who is probably best known for his role as John Winchester on Supernatural.

That however is definitely changing because of the energy and vibrancy he brings to the deliriously dangerous Negan.

For many comic book fans he is also a major star in The Watchmen where he played The Comedian, the vigilante who is driven by his greed and inherent love for violence – something similar to his Walking Dead character.

Carl Grimes was lucky not to lose his hand in the last series – he’ll be back with a vengeance now.

Chandler Riggs

Chandler Riggs, 18, is best known for his role as Carl Grimes on The Walking Dead.

He was cast in the role at just 10 years of age and is his biggest role to date.

He starred in Keep Watching alongside Bella Thorn and Ioan Grufford in 2017 where he played a member of a family that was being terrorised by intruders.

Rosita has lost the love of her life in Abraham but it looks like she could be turning things around.

Christian Serratos

Christian Serratos, 27, is best known her role of Rosita Espinosa on The Walking Dead.

The California native also had a starring role in the Twilight saga – she played Angela Weber

Christian is an animal activist who takes the rights of our furry friends seriously. She has posed for a number of PETA campaigns to promote a vegan lifestyle.

Michonne is one of the most badass characters in the series and wields a samurai sword in battle.

Danai Gurira

Danai Guirira, 39, is an American actress and playwright who is probably best known for her role on The Walking Dead.

Her parents came to the US from what was called Southern Rhodesia, which is now Zimbabwe. She was born in Iowa but moved with her family to Zimbabwe when she was five, after the country gained its independence.

In 2016 Dana’s play Eclipsed was nominated at the Tony Awards for Best Play and won Best Costume Design.

She’s a headstrong activist having partnered with J+J against HIV/AIDS and founded the non-profit organisation Love Our Girls, which aims to highlight the issues and challenges that affect women around the world.

Morgan was one of the most mysterious characters on The Walking Dead before he joined the main cast.

Lennie James

Lennie James, 51, is an English-born actor who has been working in the business for over two decades.

He has been in films like Snatch, Blade Runner 2049 and Les Miserables.

He originally starred in the pilot episode of The Walking Dead and wasn’t seen or heard of again until the third series. After that he didn’t appear on the show until season 5. In the sixth series he became a regular cast member.

Despite his few appearances in the show overall, Lennie plays one of the most convincing and beloved characters in it.
