Your pick of this week’s telly.

MONDAY

Some Girls (BBC Three, 10pm)

GREENSHOOTS Academy is short-listed to feature in a television documentary series. Unfortunately, headteacher Mr Jefferies is having traumatic personal problems. Luckily, Holli has a plan to get him back on track. She’s not the only one playing agony aunt this week, as Viva takes it upon herself to mend the rift between Amber and her sister Topaz. However, while her heart may be in the right place, once she actually spends some time with Topaz, Viva starts to wonder if maybe her friend was right to fall out with her.

TUESDAY

Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas (Channel 4, 8pm)

IS there anything Kirstie Allsopp can’t do? In this year’s seasonal special, she’s got her own little grotto in the very desirable location of Blenheim Palace’s magical Christmas fair, where she’s joined by top crafters from across the UK to show us how to add the personal touch to this year’s celebrations.

WEDNESDAY

The Lost Honour Of Christopher Jefferies (STV, 9pm)

A TWO-PART, fact-based drama inspired by events which began in December 2010. As the title suggests, it focuses on retired school teacher Christopher Jefferies, a Bristol resident in his sixties, who goes through his usual morning routine.

However, his relatively peaceful life is about to be turned upside down when one of his tenants, Joanna Yeates, disappears without a trace just before Christmas.

THURSDAY

BBC Music Awards (BBC One, 8pm)

THE stars of the music world are primped and preened, they’ve donned their suits and their little black dresses, and they’re mentally planning their acceptance speeches.

But as the glittering array of UK and international stars come together, which of them has done enough this year to walk away with an award praising them for their efforts?

FRIDAY

A Night With Olly Murs (STV, 9pm)

IT’S not quite An Audience With... but it isn’t far off it. One of The X Factor’s biggest success stories, Olly Murs was runner-up in 2009 and has now been given his own one-off show which features performances of his best-known hits, including Dear Darlin’, Heart Skips a Beat and his latest single, Wrapped Up, as well as a few surprises moments involving his celebrity friends.

SATURDAY

Strictly Come Dancing (BBC One, 6.50pm)

THE Strictly Come Dancing live semi-final is upon us and the glitterball trophy is all the more in sight. Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman welcome the five remaining couples back onto the dance floor.

This week the stakes are raised as each couple must perform not one but two routines in a bid to impress the judges. They will battle it out to see who will make it to this year’s final and go on to be crowned the Strictly Come Dancing 2014 Champion.

SUNDAY

Sports Personality Of The Year 2014 (BBC One, 8pm)

AFTER another fantastic year in British sport, Gary Lineker, Clare Balding and Gabby Logan present the 2014 BBC Sports Personality Of The Year, live from Glasgow’s Hydro Arena.

There are 10 contenders for the main award and picking a winner will be tricky.

Seven other awards will be presented, made up of Team and Coach Of The Year, Young and Overseas Sports Personality, Unsung Hero, Lifetime Achievement and the Helen Rollason award, given for inspirational achievement in the face of adversity.
