Police drama Scott & Bailey is among this week’s TV highlights.
Under The Dome
(Channel 5, 10pm)
IT’S really not that surprising that so many of Chester Mill’s residents seem to be finding religion. As well as needing something to get them through their current tough living conditions, this week events in the Dome take a positively biblical turn when blood-red acid rain starts to fall. Rebecca thinks there’s a perfectly logical explanation - it’s caused by red algae in the lake. However, creepy local barber Lyle Chumley is convinced it’s a sign of a coming apocalypse, and shows what he thinks of her scientific theories by kidnapping her.
Hot Tub Britain (STV, 9pm)
DENNIS Holmes, his son Dan, and son-in-law Ross Phillipson, are the proud owners of the country’s biggest hot-tub superstore.

Lorraine Pascale: How To Be A Better Cook (BBC2, 8.30pm)

Her first protege is 52-year-old builder Tony, who has never cooked a dish in his life.
