Piers Morgan’s Life Stories: Lionel Richie

ITV, 9.00pm

Piers Morgan has never been one to shy away from asking the tough questions, with guests in the past including Burt Reynolds, John Prescott and Elton John.

To launch off the brand new, 13th series of his sit-down interview show, Piers gets to know pop icon Lionel Richie.

The “Hello” singer holds nothing back and opens up to the host about his life and music, going deep about issues such as racism, his divorce and his relationships with his father and troubled daughter Nicole.

Hand of God

Amazon Instant Video, from midnight

Hand of God is a psychological drama about a morally-corrupt judge (Ron Perlman) who suffers a breakdown and believes God is compelling him onto a path of vigilante justice.

The pilot was premiered in September 2014 and viewers were allowed to post their opinions before the studio decided on ordering a full series.

It’s undoubtedly the star attraction from Amazon this month and will mark a dramatic return to the small screen for Sons of Anarchy star Perlman.

The Fixer

FOX, 10.00pm

Don’t miss the first episode of this brand new four-part miniseries, with more twists and turns than a conspiracy theory nut could shake a stick at.

Ever wondered if the world’s greatest disasters weren’t just accidental, or “acts of god”? When Ellie Molaro grows suspicious of the “official” answers behind a number of incidents, she begins to seek the truth, unaware that the “Fixers” don’t care for the extra attention.

Starring Murder In The First’s Kathleen Robertson and Eric Dane from The Last Ship, the question is not what you trust, it’s who.

Ripper Street

BBC One, 9.00pm

The boys of H Division are back patrolling the cobbles again, this time investigating the stabbing of a local woman on the street. Could Lady Montacute, a tourist seeking salacious amusement, be behind the attack?
