ONE TO WATCH: HOW TO SPEND IT WELL AT CHRISTMAS, ITV, STV and UTV at 7pm

As the nation gears up for Black Friday and the Christmas shopping onslaught, Phillip Schofield returns to put the gifts vying for your festive funds to the test, aided by his wife Steph, famous faces and members of the public.

This week Phillip enlists the help of Steph (Mrs Schofield) to pick some of the best gifts and gadgets on the market, from expensive beauty tech to personalised stocking fillers, so you can spoil your loved ones for less this Christmas. With sales of personal electric vehicles on the up, three tech loving lads from Corrie, Jack P Shepherd, Alan Halsall and Colson Smith put them to the test to help you decide whether hoverboards or scooters might make your Black Friday shopping list.

Thirty Christmas shoppers play Phillip’s new seasonal gameshow, Higher or Lower.  Play along and it could save you a small fortune this Christmas.   Can you guess the prices of pairs of similar looking festive favourite’s, from pyjama’s to slippers, scents to lotions? With the price tags and labels removed, will you think the cheapest options on offer are actually more expensive? There are some surprising results.

Clare Balding is on a mission to find the perfect present for our pets and hosts a Christmas party with a difference; the festive party food and drinks are for pooches, not their owners.  So how do the Champaws and Crisps go down?

And with 1 in 5 of us opting to buy a loved one a gift experience at Christmas, Phillip invited Britain’s favourite daredevil Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards to put some of the most popular ones to the test.   Which one will he rank best value for money and which will he prefer?  Track racing, sky diving, flyboarding or coming face to face with his name-sake, an eagle called Keira?

LADHOOD, BBC THREE streaming from today

Ladhood is a coming-of-age comedy from the Bafta-nominated writer/comedian Liam Williams. Adapted from an original BBC Radio 4 series, it straddles two timelines, as Liam explores the roots of modern-day masculinity by delving into the memories of his own misspent adolescence.

Liam has instigated yet another confrontation with a stranger in a bar, for the crime of having a conversation with his girlfriend, Jess. Before the altercation reaches fever-pitch, Liam delves into the memories of his adolescence and questions where this toxic behaviour stems from.

Leeds, early noughties. On the last day of the school year one of Liam’s best mates, Ralph, sees Rachel flirting with Whitey, the hardest lad in school. Ralph threatens (under his breath) to “smack him”. Word of the threat gets back to Whitey’s friends Rupert and Tinhead, who organise a fight between Ralph and Whitey for the following Friday.

Ralph can’t win and he knows it. In a panic, he considers staying home all summer. But Rupert and Tinhead tell Liam that if Ralph doesn’t show they’ll hunt Liam down and batter him instead. Back in the present day, Liam crosses the bar, towards the man he’s been arguing with.
