One to Watch: The Great British Bake Off – An Extra Slice, Channel 4 at 8pm

Jo Brand is joined by celebrity guests Harry Hill, Prue Leith and Rylan Clark-Neal to look back over the dramatic Bake Off final that saw the ‘underdog’ David Atherton win the series.

Jo is also joined by both runners-up and, of course, David while the rest of this year’s bakers make a welcome return to the Extra Slice studio.

Prue reveals why she and Paul chose their ultimate champion, and as ever there are loads of outtakes and the best and worst bakes from viewers at home, and Tom Allen does a final sweep of the studio audience to judge their bakes and serve some up to the panel. The heat is on as the final three bakers are put through their paces – was it a flying start in the chocolate cake Signature? Who rose in the soufflé Technical? And after an incredible illusion Showstopper, did the panel back the right baker to win?

Harry Hill returns later in the Channel 4 schedules at 11.05pm with the second edition of Clubnite a combination of controlled chaos and Harry’s favourite funny people.

“Honestly it was never in my mind that I thought I could win this, I have had daydreams of winning Bake Off for about 10 years. The judges always loved my presentation but not my flavours so to get a 1st in the Technical of the Final was amazing.  I didn’t imagine for one micro second that I would get to the Final let alone win it.  It’s just unreal.”- David Atherton

Even Later with Jools Holland, BBC Two at 11.05pm

Joining Jools as co-host tonight is the energetic and extremely talented Birmingham rapper and freestyle queen Lady Leshurr, having wowed the show last year with a visually exciting performance of her Black Panther freestyle.

Hache, streaming from today on Netflix

Created by Verónica Fernández and directed by Jorge Torregrossa, Hache is inspired by true events. It tells the story of Helena (Adriana Ugarte), a prostitute who starts as a simple pawn in the hands of Malpica (Javier Rey), the head of a gangster band that operates in Barcelona in the 1960s. But a steep and hazardous learning curve takes Helena from the lowest rung of the organization to the top, seizing control of the heroin operation.

Among the group of men led by Malpica, two stand out: the unstoppable Arístides and lawyer Julio Senovilla, played by Marc Martínez and Pep Ambròs respectively. On the right side of the law is the newly established Narcotics Brigade, led by inspector Alejandro Vinuesa (Eduardo Noriega), his partner Eladio Pérez (Josep Julien), and the Commissioner Clemente Larrubia, (Álex Casanovas). Marina Salas (Three Steps Above Heaven, The Boat, I Want You) features in the role of Silvia Velasco, the Commissioner’s secretary.

At the heart of the Hache story is The Albatross Club, a venue with a soul of its own, a night club where foreign visitors, young gentlemen from the city, disheveled girls, and vain denizens lose themselves in the music of the time. This club is the operations center for Malpica’s gang. Celeste, played by Ingrid Rubio who’s in charge of the club. The club’s main musical attraction is Julia Bloomsbury, played by the British actress Tonia Richardson, a singer who is always accompanied by the piano of Ramiro Larrocha (Toni Zenet).
