RECORD tv; Something in the heir PICK OF THE DAY.

SOAP UPDATE PLOT Trouble in the salon EMMERDALE STV, 7pm BERNICE and Katie's rivalry over Andy Sugden has given us some delicious food-related shenanigans recently. So Katie's birthday is simply too good an opportunity to pass up - especially as Andy is also planning to propose to Katie with a diamond ring hidden inside her cake.

But first, Bernice's daughter Gabby has her own plans for revenge in this hour-long episode that'll leave Bernice and Kate looking very red-faced.

EASTENDERS BBC1, 7.30pm AS BIANCA stews over the bombshell that Terry is moving to Milton Keynes, baby naming fever grips Albert Square.

Cindy has opted for Beth for her daughter, while Kat has resigned herself to the twins being called Bert and Ernie. What better way to advertise the fact that their father is a complete muppet? RIVER CITY BBC1, 8pm AS FINN'S trial fostering period with Robbie and Will draws near to an end, he fears they don't want to keep him.

And when the couple throw a party toast success at the salon, he thinks it's to celebrate his departure.

Worse for wear after playing truant and getting blotto, Finn trashes the salon - and ends up claiming he was thumped by Will.

PROPERTY THE PS100k HOUSE: TRICKS OF THE TRADE BBC2, 8pm LAST year, Kieran Long and architect Piers Taylor followed self-builders as they tried to construct a home from scratch for less than PS100,000.

In this new series, they're coming to the aid of homeowners as they take on ambitious building projects. In Bedford, retired nurse Dawn wants to get more space in her Victorian home.

A chocolate box cottage is all very well but have you ever tried to throw a dinner party in a box of chocolates? Piers persuades her to tear up the plans for her extensive extension and use the space she already has differently.

While that sounds easier than building an extension, it turns out it involves demolishing half of the house and starting again.

And as proof that extensions need to be thought through carefully, we drop in on Dale and Angela in Co Durham, where their new dining room proved impossible to get into because the doorway is too narrow.

The couple had never even thought to add an external door or window to the front of this room, so all Piers's design tips are gratefully received.

DRAMA HOLBY CITY BBC1, 10.35pm THINGS were bad enough between Raf and Amy without yet another rift over their unborn baby.

Raf was already coming to terms with the fact that Harry might be the father.

This week, when Mr Thompson gives Amy an ultrasound scan and reveals she's expecting a boy, she is delighted.

But the news leaves Raf cold and he's not getting into the spirit of things when she tries to discuss potential baby names.

Raf later finds Amy in tears and he fears they might have lost the baby - however, it seems she's just emotional because everything's OK.

But it turns out Raf is still struggling with the notion that the baby might be Harry's, so Amy reminds him he said he could come to terms with her cheating.

When she suggests he was relieved at the thought she'd lost the baby, this only makes matters worse and pushes them closer to splitting.

Meanwhile, after learning he's no longer in charge, Elliot decides to work on a young patient's concave chest.

The stubborn surgeon wants to make it clear he won't be following Jac's orders.

Also, loved-up Sacha worries that Essie is hiding something.

UNDER PRESSURE Raf and Amy fall out over baby again SPACE SP RACE Piers with owner Dawn HARRY AT 30 STV, 11.05pm SINGER Joss Stone, a friend of Prince Harry, is among the talking heads who sing his praises before his 30th birthday on September 15.

And I could be wrong but she appears to be dropping the most enormous hint that she'd make a fantastic princess.

As the programme points out, every stage of Harry's life has been captured by the world's media. So this compilation contains very little we haven't seen before. If you had a pound for every time you'd seen him slide down that log flume at Thorpe Park with Wills and Diana, you'd be well pleased.

But stack it all together and you soon realise that, as princes go, he's been excellent value with more public image changes than Madonna. So here we see Harry the baby, Harry the Eton schoolboy, Harry the boozy teenager, Harry the party animal and Harry the world's most eligible bachelor.

PICK But it's as Harry the soldier and Harry the charity worker that he reveals even more of himself than he did that time in Las Vegas.

THE It's impossible to knock his work and support for wounded ex-service personnel, for the charity Sentebale helping children affected by HIV and AIDS in Africa and for the Invictus Games, taking place the day before he turns 30.

Then there's his tour of duty in Afghanistan, where he was determined to be treated like any other soldier.

Harry's done his best to fulfil Diana's wish that her boys should have as normal a life as possible.

Maybe his childhood polo coach wasn't the best person to bring on to illustrate this point, though.
