TV tonight: the blood-boiling reality of the UK’s most troubled housing estates | Television & radio


60 Days on the Estates

9pm, Channel 4

Dionne lives in a mould-infested council flat with her six young children. She informed the council of a letter from their paediatrician that stated: “Due to the recent child death related to mould, I strongly put forward that they need to be rehoused.” The council has done nothing since replying: “We acknowledge your letter.” She is one of a handful of people that Ed Stafford meets in this first episode of a blood-boiling three-part series in which he investigates what life is really like on some of the UK’s most troubled housing estates.

Sitting on a Fortune

7pm, ITV1

I Kissed a Boy

The result of last episode’s Kiss Off is revealed and things turn super-catty after the unkissed dater’s departure (“Just because you are all boring bitches,” is one stunning comment that stirs things up).
