TV tonight: Sue Perkins hosts a fun new money-challenge show

Double the Money

8pm, Channel 4
A new money-challenge show that is a bit like The Apprentice, but with Sue Perkins instead of Alan Sugar, The Vault instead of the boardroom and far more likable contestants. Each week, the pairs are given a sum of money and they need to double it within 36 hours, or they will be eliminated from the competition. They start this week with £250, and some cash-making ideas include a pub quiz, Nigerian punch mocktails, scotch eggs and fortune-telling. Hollie Richardson
