Tonight's TV.

Byline: Jade Wright

PUT on your glitziest outfit and pour yourself a glass of something lovely. Or maybe just sit back in your jim-jams with a cuppa and enjoy watching everyone else in their posh, uncomfortable frocks at The British Soap Awards 2009 (ITV1, 8pm). It's been a fantastic year in soapland, with some gripping storylines keeping the public on the edge of their seats.

Who could forget Jasmine turning killer in Emmerdale, ''Tony having Liam bumped off in Coronation Street, or Warren apparently killing his wife in Hollyoaks? Yes, there have been more than a few soap murders this year - but there have been plenty of giggles, too. Maggie Jones (Corrie's Blanche) won Best Comedy Performance at last year's ceremony, but over the last 12 months Hollyoaks's Michaela has also come out with some cracking lines. All eyes will be on Best Soap, but there will also be lots of competition in the other categories, including Best Newcomer.

Last year, Corrie's Michelle Keegan (Tina) clinched victory, while the show's Rob James Collier (Liam) was voted sexiest male, Hollyoaks' Roxanne McKee (Louise) won sexiest female, and Emmerdale picked up best episode. Who will claim this year's plaudits?

WHO would have thought Alan Sugar would be at the heart of one of telly's most compelling series? Even he'd have laughed off the suggestion - but here we are, five seasons of The Apprentice (BBC1, 9pm) and it's still going strong. This week, the remaining candidates are sent to the seaside town of Margate, where their challenge is to produce a series of eyecatching posters and leaflets that will bring the tourists flocking to the resort.

But it's not just a case of knocking up some pretty pictures - as the teams quickly discover. TRYING to let go of police work and return to his marriage, McNulty gives up on identifying his Jane Doe as the second season of The Wire (BBC2, 11.25pm) continues. In their investigation of Sobotka, the detectives discover a pattern and explain the connection to Daniels, but he won't take on the murders. Meanwhile,

Sobotka plays a political game on behalf of his union. Nick gets the chemicals that Vondas asked for and, as payment, accepts money and drugs packaged for sale. D'Angelo wants to live life outside of Barksdale's umbrella, forcing Bell to bring in outside help.
