The Job Lot

Meera Syal pops up in The Job Lot this week as an influential local businesswoman, hot-tub manufacturer Jamina McNulty. Trish is determined to pull out all the stops to impress her, even having a 'hot tub hotline' installed by phone engineer Andy (Boyzone's Keith Duffy, also guest starring). However, unsurprisingly, the moody Angela puts a spanner in the works. ITV2, 10pm. Guide

Also: Ben Miller and Sue Perkins read some tall tales on the new Crackanory. Jonathan Ross and Adam Hills are amongst the guests on Celebrity Squares. Repeats and radio too: Schedule
