TV tonight: a guide to watching the general election results

Election 2024

9.55pm, BBC One
Is time up for Rishi Sunak and his Tory government? After what has felt like the longest, least inspiring election campaign in UK history, it is finally time to find out. All major channels will be covering the event throughout the night and well into the early hours of the morning (get the supplies in), including Laura Kuenssberg and Clive Myrie for the BBC. They will be helped by political editor Chris Mason and his correspondents, Jeremy Vine with his famous swingometer, and Kirsty Wark, Fiona Bruce, Victoria Derbyshire and Naga Munchetty who will be dotted across the nation. At least there’s one guaranteed good bit of news here: no more nauseating TV debates. Hollie Richardson

Tom Kerridge Cooks Britain

8.30pm, ITV1
Beetroot is always divisive, but if anyone can make the controversial vegetable acceptable to the public, it is Tom Kerridge. In this new series he is off to the Cambridgeshire Fens in his 1950s food truck to pick his beet, before apple-picking in Kent. A cracking crumble is guaranteed, whatever the weather. Hannah Verdier

Election Night Live

9pm, Sky News
If the BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg/Clive Myrie double act doesn’t float your boat, you could do worse than spend election night with Sky. Its coverage will be anchored by Kay Burley, while Labour’s Andy Burnham and Conservative Ruth Davidson will offer analysis, and Sophy Ridge will pick up the pieces the following day. Phil Harrison

Britain Decides With the Rest Is Politics and Gogglebox

9.45pm, Channel 4
Emily Maitlis co-hosts with Krishnan Guru-Murthy, alongside Alastair Campbell and Rory Stewart – who will doubtless revive the cosmetic disagreements featured on their podcast. If all that gets too wonkish, the cast of Gogglebox are on hand to critique the main parties’ campaigns. Jack Seale
