Happy Friday one and all! Are you noticing a bit of a stretch in the evenings? Ah you are. Now that you think of it like. There's a whole load of great telly on this weekend for you too from Celebrity Big Brother to Six Nations to the BAFTA's..
Take a look at our TV picks below.
Celebrity Big Brother - Live Final
Channel 5: 9.00pm
After what has probably been one of the most controversial Celebrity Big Brother series' in years, a winner will finally be crowned tonight. What unexpected finalists we have too! There's the always controversial Katie Hopkins, along with Katie Price, Calum Best, Keith Chegwin and Michelle Visage. Who are we rooting for? Can't believe we are saying this, but Katie Hopkins. She says it like it is and those facial expressions of hers are reason alone to clinch it.
RBS Six Nations: Wales v England
RTE 2: 7.30pm + BBC 1: 7.30pm
The RBS Six Nations kicks off this evening and while the pundits and bookies are putting Ireland as firm favourites, that's never a tag that the Boys in Green have been comfortable with. That element of pressure may ease the focus on both Wales and England, who are more than capable of claiming the trophy for themselves. Under the lights of the Millennium Stadium, this is sure to be a fantastic contest that kicks off the competition in style, and if you want to watch it with expert commentary from Leo Cullen, Malcolm O'Kelly and Second Captains' Eoin McDevitt, then come join us for a special screening in 4 Dame Lane full of insightful punditry, finger food to ease your hunger, and a couple of hard-earned drinks. Also the rugby will be on. Get your tickets below.
The Graham Norton Show
Tonight the Cork chat show host will be talking to talented actress Julianne Moore, who is nominated for an Oscar for her role as a professor with early-onset Alzheimer's in 'Still Alice'. Cuba Gooding Jr will be on to talk about his latest movie 'Selma', where he plays civil rights lawyer Fred Gray. Joining them will be none other than adopted Irish man Michael Flatley who will be chatting about his farewell tour of Lord of the Dance. Is... Michael any craic? We'll see I guess. He will have comedian Bill Bailey beside him on the couch anyways so he will lighten the mood. Music then will be provided by jazz vocalist Gregory Porter and soul singer-songwriter Laura Mvula.
RBS Six Nations 2015
After doing us all proud and securing the Six Nations crown last year. Ireland will be eager to prove they have what it takes, sans BOD of course. Although in fairness they've been doing alright without him so far. They take on Italy on Saturday at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome in this opening round of the championship. As the Italians are tipped to finish the bottom of the table, they shouldn't prove too much of an obstacle for Joe Schmidt's men. (Kick-off 2.30pm)
Later on then you can see the Scots take on France in Paris, which we imagine will also be a win for the French but Vern Cotter does seem to be slowly making great strides with those Scottish lads. (Kick-off 5.00pm)
The EBBA Music Awards
We remember when this young lady used to call Miley and Biddy mum and dad in Glenroe, but Blathnaid Tracey has come along way since then. The Two Tube presenter will host the European Border Breaker Awards along with none other than Mister Jools Holland himself. The ceremony celebrates the work of European musicians who have achieved international success with their first release, with nominess including our own Hozier (but of course), the German duo Milky Chance and the UK's John Newman.
The Saturday Night Show
It's pretty much Six Nations fever at the moment so you may as well catch a bit more of it with Hooky on The Saturday Night Show. Rugby pundit George Hook will be talking to Brendan about how he re-converted to Catholicism after 20 years following a serious health scare while undergoing recent knee surgery. While he'll later be joined by Tom McGurk and Brent Pope to discuss Ireland’s Six Nations chances and their final year contributing as a trio. (Aww) Later on then, Operation Transformation’s Dr. Ciara Kelly will be chatting about the ongoing problem of excessive drinking in Ireland, following THAT controversial confrontation with one of this year's leaders.
The British Academy Film Awards
Another year, another BAFTA ceremony. Stephen Fry returns as host after pulverising Uncle Gaybo last Sunday on RTE. It's a tight race this year across all categories, with Boyhood, Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel in the running for Best Picture. Stars in attendance will include Julianne Moore, Mike Leigh, Amy Adams, Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke and Ralph Fiennes. And don't forget, we'll be live-tweeting the winners over on @entertainmentIE!
The Meaning of Life
After last week's much talked about interview with Stephen Fry as we mentioned above, tonight's guest Barry McGuigan has a tough act to follow. Contrary to Fry though, retired boxer McGuigan has a strong Catholic faith which he tells Gay has helped him cope with adversity in his life, including the death of his father and brother.
The Top Gears lads decide they are going to attempt to improve the ambulance system with the presenters all going their own separate ways to enhance one area they think could do with an overhaul. James focuses on passenger comfort, Richard tries to shorten response times by getting other drivers out of the way more effectively, an issue Jeremy tackles with the invention of what he calls the 'sports ambulance'. They all then put their ideas to the test in a series of severe and pretty messy challenges. While later on, Formula One driver Daniel Ricciardo is the Star in the Reasonably Priced Car. Ah here, a F1 driver? That's hardly fair on the likes of Ed Sheeran or those other folk on the leader board now is it?
