TV tonight: Opposites attract in a new comedy drama set in Belfast | Television

The Lovers

9pm, Sky Atlantic

Sometimes, the familiar comfort of a low-stakes, formulaic romcom is all you want – and The Lovers offers exactly that. Roisin Gallagher is brilliant as mouthy, depressed Belfast supermarket worker Janet, who, in a ridiculous meet-cute, finds narcissistic political TV star Seamus (Johnny Flynn) in her back garden. They are polar opposites but – as may have guessed – that might just make them a perfect match, even if Seamus has a celebrity girlfriend … While this six-parter is not quite as enchanting as Starstruck, its BBC counterpart, all the right ingredients are there for a zippy modern love story.

Mercury Prize 2023: Album of the Year

9pm, BBC Four

After being nominated for a record-equalling fifth time, will Arctic Monkeys pick up a second Mercury prize? Among the 12 other artists and bands to beat are the infectiously jazzy Ezra Collective, nu-disco queen Jessie Ware and former winners Young Fathers. Lauren Laverne will announce the winner at the Apollo ceremony. HR

Sort Your Life Out with Stacey Solomon

8pm, BBC One

One for hoarders: Solomon and her team of human Wombles attempt to declutter families’ homes by laying every single item out in a warehouse and asking them to recycle, donate or sell. This week, the Watlings get the tough-love treatment. Items include 459 books and 39 unopened travel-sized jars of jam. Ali Catterall

Paul O’Grady: For the Love of Dogs

8.30pm, ITV1

The first of the last episodes O’Grady recorded at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home before he died unexpectedly earlier this year, making it even more of an emotional ride (“There’s something about this place that means I just can’t stop coming back”). He meets a lurcher pup with a puzzling illness and a Yorkshire terrier with bad breath. HR

Helping Our Teens

9pm, BBC Two

Behaviour expert Maria Gentles heads to Beacon Hill Academy in the West Midlands, where she meets two teenage girls who are struggling at school. Jayliyah feels she’s on her last chance after being excluded from two other institutions, but is still having trouble with authority. Taylor is overwhelmed by low moods after a series of family upheavals. Katie Rosseinsky

Couples Therapy

11.15pm, BBC Two

Someone telling their partner “I cannot commit to your freedom from suffering,” is a sign that the finale of an extraordinary reality show is as fraught as ever. But it’s also cathartic, a reward to viewers for coming this far. It includes one of the healthiest breakups you will ever see. Jack Seale
