TV tonight: power and politics in Julianne Moore’s juicy Jacobean drama | Television

Mary & George

9pm, Sky Atlantic

Julianne Moore’s juicy Jacobean drama gets headier – but it’s way beyond just rollicking romps at this point. As social climbing Mary Villiers (Moore) is named the countess of Buckingham, her son George (Nicholas Galitzine) gets a seat at King James’s (Tony Curran) privy council. Everything is right on plan for the scheming family, until Walter Raleigh returns and George gets a little too involved in his fate. Hollie Richardson

Aldi’s Next Big Thing

8pm, Channel 4

Banana ketchup, anyone? The reality show in which food producers pitch innovative ideas for Aldi’s middle aisle is back for a second series.

Sort Your Life Out With Stacey Solomon

9pm, BBC One

For the final show in the current run, Solomon and her clean-up crew help the Wellen family decant two generations’ worth of clutter from their overstuffed house.

Ben Fogle: New Lives in the Wild

9pm, Channel 5

What celebrity doing a travel show wouldn’t want to head back to Sri Lanka? But there’s a good reason why Fogle is revisiting the paradise: to catch up with the amazing vet Janey, who has built a life there rescuing street dogs. And he manages to mask his distaste as she happily kisses the mangy strays on the nose. Hannah Verdier
