TV tonight: a rollicking return for the all-female Muslim punk band comedy

We Are Lady Parts

10pm, Channel 4
Nida Manzoor’s rollicking comedy about an all-female Muslim punk band – complete with original bangers – is back for a second season, and Lady Parts have just finished a summer of touring. With a growing fanbase behind them, it’s time to put an album together, but the £200 profit they made won’t cover the studio time. However, bassist and newly qualified doctor Amina (Anjana Vasan) is in her “villain era” so can make anything happen. Then a rival band come to the fore with the undeniably cool name of Second Wife. Lady Parts, of course, support the sisterhood – and there’s room for more than one band of Muslim women in the industry … right? Great fun. Hollie Richardson

The Outlaws

9pm, BBC One
Fresh from the success of Baby Reindeer, Jessica Gunning returns as Diane, who is supervising the outlaws for a third and final season. The gang only have a handful of hours of community service to do at a Bristol City Farm, but when Rani – whom we last saw speeding off in a stolen car – pops up, it’s clear they’re headed for more trouble.

Kirstie and Phil’s Love It or List It: Brilliant Builds

8.30pm, Channel 4
The “work from home” revolution has changed what we want from our properties, but Kirstie and Phil’s tried and tested tips for maximising space can help with that. As an example, they’re revisiting one of the series’ most turbulent builds, an exercise studio for Cambridgeshire fitness instructor Amber and her husband, Martin, who’ll do anything to keep his five-minute commute. Ellen E Jones


9pm, Channel 4
It’s time to name this year’s champion, but there are a few serious challenges to get out of the way first: Sophie Willan will take to the keyboards, John Robins must refuse a biscuit and Joanne McNally is faced with an anagram. Little Alex Horne is there to record every last moment. HR

Johnson & Knopfler’s Music Legends

10pm, Sky Arts
Part of the fun of this series is witnessing Brian Johnson and Mark Knopfler snipe at each other like an old married couple. But in Nashville the bickering rock gods are on their best behaviour for an audience with Emmylou Harris. The poised queen of country opens up about her folk music awakening and enviable list of collaborators. Graeme Virtue

Film choice

Neds (Peter Mullan, 2010), 1.25am, Film4

Conor McCarron in NedsView image in fullscreen

Actor Peter Mullan’s outings in the director’s chair have been few, but on the evidence of Orphans, The Magdalene Sisters and this rough, tough 2010 film – all of which he also wrote – he should get back into it. Neds is a bleak coming-of-age story set in 1970s Glasgow, where educationally gifted working-class boy John (Conor McCarron) is protected from violence by his elder brother Benny’s hardman reputation. However, inevitably and fatefully, the thrill of gang life draws him in, offering a twisted respite from his oppressive domestic existence. Simon Wardell
