What to watch and review on Monday. Tonight’s TV tips
Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy (ITV, 9pm) A rare chance to revisit the Diana story as her still heartbroken sons William and Harry share their innermost thoughts about the mother they lost when they were little boys. It was 20 years ago when the “People’s Princess” died in a Paris car crash with her boyfriend Dodi Fayed. Since then the tragedy has been the subject of constant speculation. In this 90-minute documentary, Wills and Harry reveal the inside track.
Love Island: The Live Final (ITV2, 9pm) Which of the gormless couples trapped in a stupefying cycle of pretend romance will win the £50,000 first prize shortly before splitting the money and splitting up? Will it be vertically challenged crimper Kem and Amber? Or could Jamie and crybaby Camilla pip them to the post? Not forgetting Chris & Olivia and Marcel & Gabby. Ooh, it’s all so nail-biting. Live from sunny Majorca, host Caroline Flack proudly presents the gripping grand finale. Jokes aside, this series has been a phenomenal hit. Any idea why?
Ripper Street (BBC2, 9pm) The last ever episode of the Victorian crime drama that triumphed over the Beeb’s attempts to axe it and earned itself a substantial army of devoted fans. There’s a lot of time jumping as we go back and forwards to bring the various stories to their conclusion. With poor old DI Reid still on the trail of the elusive Ripper, don’t expect a happy ending. As if.
