MasterChef: The Professionals
Season 12 Episode 15 of 21
In the last programme of knockout week, the second group of five face two tough tests. First they are given three hours, with limited equipment and facilities, to produce a knockout plate that showcases their versatility and style. This dish is judged by a group of diners specialising in the street food and pop-up industry - and the contestant that wins the most votes sails through to the semi-finals. The other four are left to produce a showstopper dish in just 90 minutes - hoping it will be enough to get them through

Live Snooker: UK Championship
2019 Final: Session Two Concluding coverage of the final of the prestigious ranking tournament at the Barbican Centre in York, played over the best of 19 frames, with a maximum of 11 to be played in this session. Although he had only made sporadic appearances all season, Ronnie O'Sullivan showed no sign of rust as he retained the title last year, overcoming a valiant second-session display by Mark Allen to prevail 10-6 and become the most successful player in the competition's history ahead of Steve Davis with seven triumphs. The result also gave 'The Rocket' a 19th Triple Crown title, having also won five world titles and The Masters seven times, to put him one ahead of Stephen Hendry at the top of the all-time list, as he further strengthened his claim to being the greatest player of all time. Presented by Hazel Irvine, with commentary and analysis from Steve Davis, John Parrott, Ken Doherty, Stephen Hendry, Alan McManus and Dennis Taylor
