Cakes, holiday nightmares and the downfall of a showbiz legend.

'The Great British Bake Off' bake off 8pm, BBC One It might be heading to Channel 4, but the Bake Off still has plenty to offer during its tenure at the Beeb. This week is pastry week, and Paul Hollywood is as harsh a judge as ever. The signature dish takes on a Danish twist, while the technical challenge sees the contestants having to bake a classic British tart. Meanwhile, Mel Giedroyc discovers the history of Baklava, as you do.

'Airbnb: Dream or Nightmare?' airbnb 10pm, Channel 4 Airbnb's popularity has rocketed in recent years, as increasing numbers of holidaymakers and travellers choose it over a hotel. But is the experience always a positive one? This documentary suggests not. It tells stories of hosts having their residences trashed, which must be quite a shock, especially as Airbnb doesn't always compensate. There are also tales of dodgy electrics, rancid smells and even predatory hosts. The firm has recently tried to stamp out racist discrimination from hosts, so this documentary will bring it some more unwelcome publicity.

'National Treasure' robbie coltrane national treasure 11:05pm, 4seven If you missed this new drama last night, do yourself a favour and catch up tonight. Robbie Coltrane plays Paul Finchley, a faded old-school comic who finds himself at the centre of a rape allegation dating back to the early 1990s. The similarities with Operation Yewtree are many, with Coltrane even proclaiming: "They think I'm Jimmy f***ing Saville." To which the only suitable response is: How's about that then?
