MasterChef: The Professionals

8pm, BBC2

The Professionals have been to Heston's hell and back in their final week, thrown in at the deep end with the liquid nitrogen down at the Fat Duck. Now they face one final challenge: cooking three courses of fault-free food for Michel Roux Jr and Gregg Wallace. It's a proposition that's scarier than that sea urchin skills test, but they've got the potential to pull some real blinders out of the bag. High standards all round this series, with many dishes earning the ultimate Wallace accolade: "yummy" indeed. Hannah Verdier

Britain's Hidden Housing Crisis

9pm, BBC1

The hidden crisis is of people unexpectedly finding themselves homeless. The stories here are of people who have paid rent or mortgage payments for years, only to end up with the bank taking their home. »

Sebastian Sozzi and Michael Madsen have both landed roles on Blue Bloods Season 3.

Sozzi (pictured, My Generation) will appear on multiple episode of the CBS drama as Vinny Cruz, Jamie Reagan’s new partner. A network casting outline described the officer as "fast-talking and charismatic," hailing from one of the toughest precincts in New York.

Madsen, meanwhile, will guest star as a long-time criminal who seeks revenge on Donnie Wahlberg's Danny after getting out of jail.

Both actors will debut on the Blue Bloods October 5 premiere. »
