What's on TV tonight? Shows to watch on Wednesday 30 May from The Big Crash Diet Experiment to The Doctor Who Gave Up Drugs

The Big Crash Diet Experiment, 8pm, BBC One

Diets made up of soups and shakes are the black sheep of the health world.

They’ve long been thought to be dangerous and counterproductive, but Dr Javid Abdelmoneim explains that new studies show, if conducted safely, they could be helpful.

He hosts an experiment that takes four people who desperately want to lose weight – diabetic priest Paul, mum Tracy, takeaway addict Rebecca and binge-eating Yolanda (right) – on a journey through nine weeks of eating 800 calories a day.

As you’d expect, things get emotional but the results are, at least initially, very impressive.

The Doctor Who Gave Up Drugs, 9pm, BBC One

24 Hours In A&E, 9pm, Channel 4

Tony (below) has been brought in by air ambulance after he and his father were both injured in a motorbike crash, while 12-year-old Harry is sporting leg injuries after he was involved in a bike pile-up at his local velodrome.

Let’s hope it doesn’t put paid to his chances of becoming the next Sir Bradley Wiggins…

GPs: Behind Closed Doors, 8pm, Channel 5

It’s our final visit to Horfield Health Centre in Bristol this series, Dr Jane Edge (above) has more than a case of the sniffles to contend with.
