Have no plans for this evening? Same.


If you feel like you’ve already reached the end of Netflix and can’t bear the thought of trawling through the channels while avoiding all US and Brexit news, or simply don’t want to look at a screen at all, here are our picks for the new podcasts, books, TV, films and events to watch, stream, listen to and read this evening.

WATCH

Ru Paul’s Drag Race UK Season 2, BBC 3

Start your engines, Ru Paul is back and ready to inject oversaturated colour and fun back into your life for another season with contestants from across the UK . There’s an all-new panel of judges this year including Graham Norton, Alan Carr, Liz Hurley, Lorraine Kelly, Dawn French and more. The first brief in tonight’s episode is a look inspired by a UK gay icon and a look inspired by the contestant’s ‘hometown queen,’ giving a spotlight to the UK’s rich queer history. The first episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK lands tonight on BBC iPlayer at 7pm, or you can watch on Wow Presents Plus. Watch now or spend the next year scratching your head at memes.

Ant Middleton & Rebel Wilson, Straight Talking, 9pm on Sky One

Ant Middleton returns with another chatshow-meets-Bear-Grylls show tonight, this time taking a trip around Mexico and talking weight loss, Me Too and love with Rebel Wilson.
