The weekend is here but it's the golden ticket of weekends as we have a glorious Bank Holiday at the end of it - a whole extra day to do whatever we want with. Well unless of course you are one of the unfortunate souls that have to work, so if that's the case, apologies and please do read on.

If you are planning on using these next few days as a good opportunity to kick back, then you may want to know what you can watch on the box. So take a look at our weekend TV picks below...

The Late Late Show
RTE1: 9.35pm

The Late Late Show are debating one of the most talked about subjects in Ireland at the moment, the upcoming Marriage Equality referendum. Speaking for the Yes campaign will be Colm O’Gorman (executive director of Amnesty International Ireland) and Irish Times columnist Una Mullally, while Petra Conroy from Catholic Comment and blogger Keith Mills will be representing the No side. Ireland is the first country in the world to hold a vote over this issue, and with over half a million tuning into The Late Late Show each week, we can only hope they don't mess this up. Also on the show, Taste Icon Award recipient Richard Corrigan, Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby, as well as a performance by Ham Sandwich.

The Graham Norton Show
BBC1: 10:40pm

A belter of a Graham Norton Show in store tonight. First up, Game of Thrones' Kit Harrington will be on the show! Or Jon Snow as he's known to many. He'll be talking about appearing in new spy thriller 'Spooks: The Greater Good'. He'll be joined by actor Matt LeBlanc, who chats about the new series of Episodes, while Aussie actress Rebel Wilson will be talking about the much anticipated Pitch Perfect 2. Music then will be provided by Mumford and Sons.

Body of Lies
RTE2: 9.00pm

A CIA agent pursuing a terrorist mastermind in the Middle East starts working with Jordanian intelligence to capture his target. But as he carries out his mission, he is caught between allegiance to his superior in the US and the local intelligence chief. Basically, all you need to know is Leonardo Di Caprio, Russell Crowe, and Mark Strong star in this Ridley Scott directed thriller, and it's not to be missed.


European Rugby Champions Cup: Clermont Auvergne v Toulon
Sky Sports 3: 4.00pm

The final of the tournament is upon us, and while there is no Irish interest in the showpiece this year, the final of Europe's most prestigious competition still pits two of the very best sides in the game at the moment against one another. Toulon managed to scrape past Leinster (just) to reach the final, but as defending champions they will surely pose plenty of problems for Clermont. There is a worry, however, that there might be more than 40,000 empty seats at Twickenham for the final, with both clubs returning large amounts of their ticket allocations, which could see a great game played in front of a very small crowd in an extremely strange atmosphere.

Tropic Thunder
RTE2: 9.00pm

This movie is just downright hilarious, so fear not, if you're looking for a decent movie to watch of a Saturday night in, this won't fail to entertain. It features an all star cast of comedy gold including Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Steve Coogan as well as Oscar nominated Robert Downey Jr, who plays a blinder in this. The movie begins with a director (Coogan) who plans to make a truly original war film by dropping a bunch of actors into the Vietnam jungle, with the intention of filming them fighting guerrilla-style. However, things quickly go wrong when they find themselves in an actual warfare situation, however they all still believe they are filming a movie. It's as funny as it sounds and for the love of God make sure not to miss an unrecognisable Tom Cruise with those now legendary dance moves.

RTE2: 10.55pm

This fantastic award-winning documentary tells the story of the Brazilian Formula One driver Ayrton Senna, examining his achievements on the track over a 10-year period that saw him crowned world champion three times. Senna's success was unprecedented but his reign on the track came to a tragic end in 1994 when he died in a crash during the San Marino Grand Prix. The doc features rare footage from the F1 archives and contributions from fellow racing stars including Alain Prost and Jackie Stewart.


The Enfield Haunting
Sky Living: 9.00pm

Nope, this isn't about a town in county Meath, rather a real life haunted house in London in the seventies which this new supernatural drama is based on. Starring Timothy Spall, Matthew Macfadyen, and Juliet Stevenson, it sees amateur paranormal investigator Maurice Grosse (Spall) fascinated by the inexplicable incidents that seem to be happening at this London home and heads over to meet the family and stay the night. We won't say much but be prepared to have the blanky at the ready for this one...

Sunday Night at the Palladium
UTV Ireland: 8.00pm

Remember when Bradley Walsh was in Coronation Street all those years? That's really what we most remember the comedian from, but of course he's been in plenty since and also hosts that game show The Chase. Tonight it's his turn to take on the role of presenter at the Palladium for a brand new series of the variety show where he will be introducing a whole load of great guests including Olly Murs, Madness and a 10th anniversary performance by the cast of Billy Elliot the Musical. While there's comedy from Men in Coats and stand-up star Jo Brand, as well as a performance by acrobatic animal act Olate Dogs, winners of America's Got Talent 2012.

The C-Word
BBC1: 8.30pm

We last seen Sheridan Smith as Cilla Black in the three part drama series about the star's rise to fame, a performance which earned Smith a National Television Award this year. She returns to the screen now for this one-off drama based on the blog and book by Lisa Lynch, which is an account of her life after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Lisa was just 28-years-old and recently married when she discovered she had breast cancer. Determined not to let the disease beat her she decided to write about her experience, completely unaware of the effect this would have on her life and so many others.


Game of Thrones
Sky Atlantic: 9.00pm

We return to the Seven Kingdoms for the fourth episode in this brand new series tonight, which features the much anticipated appearance of the Sand Snakes, who are the infamous bastard daughters of Prince Oberyn Martell. Clearly it's Game of Thrones using the word bastard to describe them - sure practically everyone's a bahstad there. We also see that High Sparrow seems to be making more of an impact on Cersei, while Jamie and Bronn run into some trouble on the road to Dorne...

The Stranger on the Bridge
Channel 4: 9.00pm

On January 14, 2008, Jonny Benjamin stood on Waterloo Bridge on London with the intention of taking his own life. However, a stranger walking on the bridge at the time managed to talk him down. Jonny was subsequently taken to hospital by the police and never had the chance to thank the Good Samaritan he named Mike. Six years later, he launched the 'Finding Mike' social-media campaign to track the man down, and it ended up going viral leading to the emotional reunion of the pair in this documentary.

The Blind Side
RTE1: 9.30pm

The movie that finally made the world sit up and take notice of Sandra Bullock as an actress. She plays Leigh Anne Tuohy, a mother in a middle class family who takes in a hulking homeless teenager, who has no education or skills to speak of. She manages to completely turn his life around, helping him get the grades he needs for a college scholarship and hone his sporting skills to become an American football player. Best part of it all? It's based on a true story AND Bullock bagged an Oscar for it.
