The Dentists (STV, 9pm)

THIS programme shows the extraordinary array of problems our dentists have to deal with. During this insight we meet 25-year-old Danielle, who as a result of a lifetime of dental neglect and a severe phobia of the dentist, is having to have her own teeth extracted so she can be fitted for dentures to wear for her wedding. Meanwhile, James has been left self-conscious about his smile after his adult teeth never formed.


CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (Channel 5, 9pm)

THIS week’s Vegas-based drama centres on an inferno at struggling music venue, the Lockjaw Club.

Controversial hardcore band White Rising were playing there on the night several people died. Clearly some of the deaths were intentional; one of the victims had been strangled before the fire and left on the dance floor, and the door to the only other exit had been blocked by a car.

Fostering And Me With Lorraine Pascale (BBC 2, 9pm)

CHEF, best-selling author and former model Lorraine Pascale is one of TV’s biggest success stories of the past few years. However, her early years were a rollercoaster ride of emotions. She was born in London in 1971; adopted at 18 months, and then went into care aged eight. Here, Lorraine reflects on the impact fostering had on her life, recounting her experiences of being in care and tracking down the people who looked after her, who she hasn’t seen for more than three decades.

Lorraine is celebrity patron of TACT (The Adolescent and Children’s Trust)
