WEEKEND: WEEKEND TV: SUNDAY TV.
THE SOUTH BANK SHOW (ITV, 11.05pm)
FILM star Ewan McGregor blows the lid off the life of a movie pin-up as he takes the South Bank Show cameras with him on promotional trips to Cannes and New York for two new movies - Down With Love and Young Adam. It leads to him doing up to 80 interviews a day to publicise the films.
The Scottish sex symbol also talks frankly about his public fall out with the Trainspotting team after they chose to cast Leonardo Di Caprio in the lead role of The Beach.
He reveals how he prepares for various film roles and how he ended up doing full frontal nudity in Velvet Goldmine - a requirement that was not in the script.
EASTENDERS PERFECTLY FRANK (BBC1, 8pm)
AN extra helping of EastEnders for Sunday night. Well, not quite a regular Albert Square episode, this is a one-off special all about the adventures of Walford's Frank Butcher.
Mike Reid is back as Frank, who is living by the sea and running a nightclub and secondhand car business. Frank is smiling, but that's not likely to last long.
