Accompanied by a host of celebrity guests, the ‘ITV Judge’ delves deep into current news stories, viral trends and talking points aplenty. Well-known for his uncompromising opinions, the series also puts Rob in fish-out-of-water scenarios, taking on other worlds outside his usual comfort zone and experiencing conflicting perceptions.
The Rob Rinder Show tonight welcomes as guests for his second episode fellow ITV Daytime star Lorraine Kelly, former Newsnight host Jeremy Paxman and comedian Jason Manford.

Celebrity 5 Go Motor-homing: Back on the Road, Channel 5 at 10pm
It’s the second episode in this five-part series that once more has sent some of our entertainment national treasures off on the road.
Over the past few series Channel 5 has sent star names on holiday all over Europe persuading them to live in tents, barges, caravans and various other unusual forms of accommodation.
This latest series ‘Back on the Road’ sees a revisit of the 2017 motorhome adventure of celebrities Leslie Joseph, Don Warrington, Melvyn Hayes, Nick Heyward and Cleo Rocos. These darlings of 1970s and 80s music and television were sent to enjoy the Welsh countryside.
Now we’re taking a look back in this companion series with highlights including Rising Damp star Don getting the mobile holiday home stuck in a field.
