What's on TV tonight? Shows to watch on Thursday 24 May from Humans to Million Pound Menu

Humans, 9pm, Channel 4

There are two new men in Laura’s (Katherine Parkinson, right) life this week.

First up is Stanley, a well-built orange-eyed synth, who arrives at the Hawkins’ home to act as Laura’s bodyguard, despite her protests.

Then there’s Dr Neil Sommer (Mark Bonnar, left), an intriguing fellow participant on Government panel the Dryden Commission.

In the synth camp, reluctant leader Max faces rebellion, while, Niska and Mia discover a group of trafficked Eastern European synths and Leo wakes from his coma.

There are plenty of compelling story threads this week, but Humans could do with lightening up on occasion.

Million Pound Menu, 9pm, BBC Two

Cuban street-food concept FINCA and vegan junk-food vendor Wholesome Junkies are hoping to attract investors during a trial pop-up.

Host Fred Sirieix (centre) clearly feels their pain, as he told TV Mag: “You come into a kitchen you don’t know, and you don’t know where the salt is or how to turn the oven on!”.

First Dates, 10pm, Channel 4

Ruth (right), 27, believes getting a Brazilian bum lift has actually been her downfall when it comes to finding the right man.
Apparently, it attracts the wrong kind of attention!

And 23-year-old Michael (left) doesn’t do himself any favours when he cracks a joke about her pert derrière.

We’ve got a feeling those animated birds will be taking flight in different directions…

Missions, 9pm, BBC Four

We’re used to foreign sleuths solving crimes in the cold, remote corners of the Earth, but now it’s time to welcome some French space adventurers about to land on Mars in this 10-part subtitled sci-fi drama.

They’re disappointed to learn an American crew has overtaken them to become the first ones there, but their mission becomes a desperate rescue…

This opening double bill is fun with some excellent twists.

The Trouble with M&S, 9pm, C5

Marks & Spencer is as engrained in British culture as fish and chips.

But the high-street giant is struggling to thrive, with cheap togs available from budget shops, posh food sold at supermarkets and the rise of online shopping.

Here, Fiona Phillips (above) investigates how the brand can survive in the modern retail world.
