Grayson’s Art Club
8pm, Channel 4

One of the TV hits of the first lockdown saw the Turner prize winner Grayson Perry and his wife, the psychotherapist Philippa, enlist celebrity pals to encourage the public to get crafting while they were at home, ultimately putting together an exhibition – yet to open in Manchester – of the series’ finest works. In the first of a new series, the pair are joined by the singer Boy George, who creates a work inspired by his family, while the artist Yinka Ilori discusses how his situational work investigates his British and Nigerian heritage. Ammar Kalia

Raiders of the Lost Past With Janina Ramirez

9pm, Channel 4

As if staying at home on your sofa watching TV on a Friday night were not exciting enough, here comes a new series of Gogglebox.

Gregg Wallace: Big Weekends Away
9pm, Channel 5

TV’s loudest traveller is in Edinburgh, soaking up the culture and deafening all in his presence. As well as a history lesson on the city’s castles and underground streets, there’s also a culinary adventure for the MasterChef host, as he rustles up grouse and langoustines with the chef Tom Kitchin. Hannah J Davies

Bruno v Tyson
9pm, Sky Documentaries

One of our greatest homegrown documentary makers, Kevin Macdonald (Touching the Void), and Benjamin Hirsch relate the story of the US’s “baddest man on the planet”, Mike Tyson, and his rivalry with “Britain’s gentle giant”, Frank Bruno. The pair also confront their demons in this candid film. Ali Catterall

The Graham Norton Show
10.45pm, BBC One

Actors of every stripe grace Graham’s sofa this evening: Kate Winslet has another romantic role in a period drama, Stanley Tucci will (hopefully) demonstrate his negroni-mixing once more and the British star Kingsley Ben-Adir reflects on his recent success. Plus: music from Silk City. Ellen E Jones

Film choice

The Age of Innocence (Martin Scorsese, 1993), 3.35pm, Sky Cinema Greats
The film that proved Martin Scorsese could do period dramas as well as mob tales, though the rule-bound society of 1870s New York isn’t too distant from mafia life. Daniel Day-Lewis and Michelle Pfeiffer are the forbidden lovers in a glossy but restrained 1993 Edith Wharton adaptation. Simon Wardell
