Bad Education. Alfie (Jack Whitehall). Image credit: Tiger Aspect Productions.

Bad Education

Jack Whitehall started off as a cocky young stand-up who got a lot of viewers' backs up. However, through his acting work - first on Fresh Meat, and then this sitcom - he's won over many fans. This is very much looking like it'll be the last episode of Bad Education (Alfie quits) so there's going to be some sad people tonight. Laugh at the 'Where's Fraser?' preview clip. BBC Three, 10pm. Guide

Also: Mount Pleasant; Give Out Girls; Modern Life Is Goodish with Dave Gorman; pranks from The Revolution Will Be Televised; and more radio comedy, including Mark Watson. Schedule
