TV tonight: Robbie Williams disses Westlife’s dance routines

Robbie Williams: Role Stories

8.45pm, BBC Two

There’s a lot to like in the format of this retrospective show, in which Dermot O’Leary stars Robbie Williams clips from his career. From the pop star opening up about how “attention is a drug,” to footage of him on stage as a 15-year-old, to Westlife’s dance routines while watching Take That frolic in cycling shorts, it makes for a colorful interview.

Be sure to come dance

6.30pm, BBC One

You no longer have to believe Craig Revel Horwood: When the 15 couples dance for the second time, the voting lines are open. But of course that also means there will be a dance-off and the sweet sadness of the first elimination on the Sunday night show, which features Robbie Williams as a guest. Jack Seale

The Masked Dancer

6.30pm, ITV

Welcome back to another night in this feverish dream of a show that somehow manages to offer an even weirder viewing experience than its musical counterpart. It’s a double elimination this time, so brace yourself for two dramatic celebrity revelations, which are part of the soundtrack to the crowd chanting, ‘Take it off! Pull it out!” Katie Rosseinsky

Helping Bradley Walsh fill in the blanks tonight (with plenty of references): Strictly’s Anton Du Beke, paraathlete Kadeena Cox, comedian Tom Allen, actor Brian Conley, rapper Lady Leshurr and comedian Alex Brooker. Hollie Richardson

KaDeWe: Our time is now

9pm, BBC Four

“I’ve gotten a taste for kissing someone I love and the difference is like night and day…” Expect heaps of more tacky statements as Hedi and Fritzi’s romance blossom in tonight’s double bill. But does Hedi Rüdiger still have to marry for the sake of her family? Elsewhere, the hedonistic Harry’s antics spiral out of control. The Berlin scenery is getting poorer and more desperate. MR

Later – With Jools Holland

9.30pm, BBC Two

It’s been 30 years since the first episode aired, so Holland is celebrating by launching another series (not that he ever really needs an excuse to throw a party). Pop powerhouse Self Esteem will perform hits from their Mercury Award-nominated album Prioritize Pleasure, and The 1975 will debut songs from their forthcoming album Being Funny in a Foreign Language.

The 1993 original gained a cult following, so Disney brought the band (of the sisters) back together for another easy-to-digest comedy. Witches Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy (all magically unchanged) are accidentally brought back to life on Halloween by Whitney Peak and Belissa Escobedo’s spellcasting friends in present-day Salem, and once again attempt to survive longer than their allotted night. Slightly more elaborate special effects are the only change in a wide caper that harks back to its ancestor. Simon Wardell

hell or flood, 9 p.m., movie 4

Everyone has their reasons, and for Texas brothers Toby (Chris Pine) and Tanner (Ben Foster), they rob banks to save the family ranch. Unfortunately, Tanner’s erratic paths put her safety at risk, and with Jeff Bridges Ranger on her trail, there’s little room for error. David Mackenzie’s film is both a compelling thriller and a realistic study of rural life, while a Taylor Sheridan script is fast becoming a hallmark of quality. Bridges is as attractive as ever as the near-retirement lawman, but Pine and Foster also impress as misguided siblings. SW
