The nation's favourite baking contest reaches the quarter-final stage with only five bakers remaining.
It's advanced dough week and the contestants take on a signature bake in which they work with soft dough to create artful pieces, a technical that asks them to recreate an Eastern European union between bread and pastry, and a doughnut showstopper.
Wentworth Prison: Channel 5, 10pm
Bea (Danielle Cormack) becomes convinced that there is a contract out on her, and when three new prisoners arrive, she thinks one of them will try to kill her.
Bea is particularly suspicious of trans inmate Maxine (Socratis Otto) - but when an attack takes place in the showers, the would-be assassin is someone completely unexpected.
Crackanory: Dave, 10pm
Series two of this adult storybook series returns.
We're at the halfway point now, and the competition is getting tense. No-one storms out of the marquee in this episode, or accidentally conducts Baked Alaska-based espionage, but with the pressure on, even Paul and Mary can't keep their cool.
The pair spark their first on-screen war of words tonight and, like the European cakes the contestant are desperately trying to throw together, it's delicious.
Scott & Bailey: ITV, 9pm
The popular detective drama returns for a fourth series tonight. With Janet Scott (Lesley Sharp) and Rachel Bailey (Suranne Jones) up for the same promotion to Sergeant, the spirit of competition is in the air.
Meanwhile, the pair must investigate when a pub landlord reports that one of his employees has gone missing, and a woman's body is found in a flooded quarry.

Following the national meltdown (sorry) over the Baked Alaska 'bingate' drama last week, Bake Off returns without Iain, or Diana, who dropped out of filming for health reasons.
Emotions are running understandably high as the remaining bakers prepare a selection of pies and tarts, and try their hardest to avoid Mary Berry's least favourite feature: a soggy bottom.
Straight after Bake Off comes a heart-warming new period drama on BBC One, which tells the story of the family who founded Chester Zoo.
Appalled at the treatment of the animals at a local circus, ex-soldier George Mottershead (Lee Ingleby) relocates a monkey and a parrot to his parents back yard - much to their distaste. Liz White, Ralf Little, Anne Reid, Sophia Myles and Stephen Campbell Moore (pictured) also star.

Ooh, you guys are plucky! Dates, you may remember, was the Channel 4 drama series that saw the likes of Sheridan Smith, Andrew Scott, Will Mellor and Katie McGrath go out on a number of overlapping first dates.
The show very much had a 'one-off' feel about it, coming as part of the channel's special 'Mating Season' in June 2013. However, its fans are refusing to let go, and the renewal of its stablemate, reality series First Dates, continues to give them hope. However, a Channel 4 spokesperson »
Known as Wentworth Prison in the UK, the popular prison drama is inspired by Australian soap Prisoner - which ran for 692 episodes between 1979 and 1986.

Utopia series 2 air date? First series was best original TV in ages.
"It's very much under wraps," protested Utopia series two (and Game of Thrones) star Rose Leslie when we quizzed her about an air date at the Battersea Power Station first annual party last night. So, because we didn't want to get expelled from a fancy shindig by interrogating a well-known actress, we're gonna have to stick with that loose mid-2014 date Channel 4 gave us a while ago.
