What to watch.

Byline: with Jo Manning

CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER (C4 & S4C, 9pm) AS we went to print, the identities of the celebrities who will this year be exposing their personalities and their careers to our intense scrutiny, had yet to be named.

However, there is a certain amount of speculation around the likes of drum and bass DJ Goldie, `comedian' Les Dennis, ex-Take That star Mark Owen and Mel Geidroyc, one half of the comedy duo Mel and Sue.

Whether the above `celebrities' actually do make it into the final six to enter the house remains to be seen, but they could all do with the publicity. Goldie doesn't seem to have touched a record since the dark ages of junglism, Mark Owen is only known to viewers of digital television since Take That split and most people will be asking `Mel who?' if Geidroyc gets in. Nevertheless, having seen the career of Tony Blackburn re-blossom after his stint on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, I'm sure these and many others will be clamouring to get a piece of the reality TV action.

Whatever happens and whoever shows up, the next 10 days are sure to have us glued to our sets .

Wannabes againMam-tastic!LIFE OF MAMMALS (BBC1, 9pm) THERE'S nothing quite like a BBC wildlife series if you need spectacle and wonder to fill those cold winter nights.

Last year we had the Blue Planet to warm the cockles of our hearts and minds, so this new 10-parter, presented by the ever-dependable David Attenborough, will have to be absolutely incredible to beat its predecessor in my humble opinion. By all accounts, this journey into the world of mammals - the Earth's most durable and adaptable animal group - more than lives up to expectation with sights never before captured on film, interactive options for viewers with those special red buttons and breathtaking footage of everything from blue whales to lions.

Tonight Australia's most unusual inhabitant - the platypus - makes an appearance, as does its furry marsupial neighbour - the kangaroo.Fingers crossedAZERBAIJAN V WALES (BBC2, 2.30pm & S4C, 2.45pm) FOOTBALL HIGHLIGHTS (BBC1, 10.35pm) HAS the club v country debacle stitched Wales up? Can they overcome a country I didn't even realise was in Europe? Let's hope so because anything less than a draw at this stage in the qualifiers would be difficult for Wales to rescue.

Nevertheless, come 3pm, work in Wales will probably come to a halt. Just try and enjoy the game.
