Tom Hardy is the big draw as the hooting jabberfest returns. He's hawking his split-screen, award-baiting new dual role as both Ronnie and Reggie Kray in Legend - although once you've seen his Kray twins compared on social media to Chris Morris and Peter O'Hanraha-hanrahan, you can't unsee it. Also bouncing on to the sofa is Demi Lovato, who hit the ground running on her previous appearance by swigging Dr Pepper straight from a two-litre bottle and cracking jokes about Simon Cowell's chest hair.

The irrepressible Alan Carr returns for a 14th series of his charmingly goofy chat show tonight, in which his guests reveal just as much about themselves by the way they react to his Bombay mix and WKD-style of hospitality as from any of the comic's proper questions. On the sofa and partaking in Carr's eccentrically stocked drinks trolley will be The Voice judges - Will.i.am, Ricky Wilson, Tom Jones and the madcap Rita Ora - joined by Antonio Banderas and Danny Dyer. Ella Henderson provides the music.
