The guilty pleasure reality franchise returns to Mediterranean waters with more tensions brewing between the privileged yacht guests and its party-loving crew.

Funny Woman - Sky MAX - Thursday, 9pm

Gemma Arterton brings Nick Hornby's novel to life as 60s Blackpool factory worker Barbara Parker, who sets out for London hoping to take the sitcom world by storm.

Life as a comic actor turns out to have fewer laughs than anticipated, but she catches the eye of a theatrical agent played by Rupert Everett.

Also starring David Threlfall, Tom Bateman, Clare-Hope Ashitey and Arsher Ali.

You - Netflix - Thursday

Clarkson's Farm - Prime Video - Friday
