TV tonight: Matt Lucas and Elis James revive a 90s footie classic

Fantasy Football League

10pm, Sky Max

David Baddiel and Frank Skinner’s footie chatshow last aired in 2004, but Matt Lucas and Elis James are about to revive it with this new 16-week series. Keeping much of the old format, they will welcome fantasy football managers such as the actor Brian Cox, the comedians Jennifer Saunders and Maisie Adam and veteran newsreader Trevor McDonald to talk through their teams. Comedian and football fanatic Andrew Mensah brings some extra laughs. Hollie Richardson

Eat Well for Less?

8pm, BBC One

What happens at teatime when a meat eater and his vegan wife sit down to eat? Drafting in Diversity dancer Jordan Banjo to plan budget meals they can enjoy together might not be an obvious solution, but he is helped by fresh produce importer and chef Chris Bavin in this long-running series. HR

All That Glitters: Britain’s Next Jewellery Star

9pm, BBC Two

It’s finale time in the workshop. The last three jewellers standing must fashion a “beautiful and timeless” engagement ring set with a sapphire (they’re the new diamonds), then win over Shirley Ballas with a bespoke necklace that is striking enough to hold its own on the Strictly set. Which design will have her reaching for that “10” paddle? Katie Rosseinsky

DNA Journey

9pm, ITV

This celebrity twist on the DNA-reveal genre is back with a fourth series. In tonight’s episode, comedians Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan go on journeys to explore their family histories – both discovering relatives they never even knew existed. HR


9pm, Channel 4

Celebrities fumbling with frozen peas and shouting about fish? It can only be the return of Greg Davies in the beloved but oh-so-silly gameshow (with his assistant “Little” Alex Horne by his side). The new comic contestants hoping to be crowned the 14th Taskmaster champion are: Dara Ó Briain, John Kearns, Fern Brady, Sarah Millican and Munya Chawawa. HR

Late Night Mash

10pm, Dave

Poised and pithy anchor Rachel Parris referees the latest instalment of the topical free-for-all recorded precariously close to transmission. Expect the usual Mash menu: guest comedians given free rein to satirise some political hot potatoes or roast glib culture-war commentators with chips on their shoulder. Graeme Virtue

Film choice

Daphne (Peter Mackie Burns, 2017), 2am, Film4
A nimble performance from Emily Beecham is at the heart of Peter Mackie Burns’s big-city drama. Her titular 31-year-old character drifts through life in London in a series of casual hookups, nights out with sort-of friends and unsatisfying shifts in a restaurant kitchen. Her desire to forge her own path – possibly as a chef – appears too weak to act on, until she witnesses a violent incident and begins to stumble off-centre. It’s a film of cumulative impact, with Beecham’s Daphne believably at sea but never melodramatically so. Simon Wardell
