Lindsay Lohan stars in The Parent TrapBBC

This brilliant 1998 flick never gets old. Lindsay Lohan showcased her talents for the first time in the remake of the 1961 Disney comedy starring Dennis Quaid and the late Natasha Richardson. Freckle-faced Lohan plays the part of twins who are unaware of each other's existence and meet by accident. They decide to join forces in a bid to reunite their estranged parents, and switch places to get the former couple to reignite their romance.


Dirty Dancing – Channel 5, 5pm

If you're looking for a feel-good drama to watch with your mum this Mothering Sunday, then Dirty Dancing is the one. Starring the hunky Patrick Swayze and adorable ingénue Jennifer Grey, the much-loved blockbuster is not one to miss. Swayze plays the sexy bad boy dancing coach who strikes up a relationship with Grey, who shot to fame as Frances "Baby" Houseman on a summer visit to a Jewish holiday resort in 1963. Cheesy and fabulous, just how we like it.

Line of Duty – BBC1, 9pm

If you're staying in this Sunday night then make sure to check out the Thandie Newton-starring series premiere of Line of Duty. The show's fourth instalment of the crime drama sees a detective on the trail of a serial killer. She is determined to catch the culprit as soon as possible and prove her worth to her superiors. Her efforts may have led to a miscarriage of justice, however, and a colleague alerts the AC-12 team to the situation.
