TV tonight: Will Young talks about the loss of his twin brother to alcoholism | Television

Will Young: Losing My Twin Rupert
10.05 pm, channel 4

When Will Young was able to win over the audience on Saturday night on Pop Idol in 2002, he tried behind the scenes to care for his brother Rupert, who was living with alcoholism. This incredibly candid film sees Will (always so charming, wearing his heart on his sleeve) and his parents telling Rupert’s story. He also speaks to people dealing with alcoholism in their families – talking to a charity worker about her father will bring a tear or two. Hollie Richardson

Sephy sits down for some tense crisis negotiations with her father in the wake of her interview – immunity to Callum and Jude in exchange for a public reconciliation. There’s a lot of melodrama and gunfire to wade through as plans go predictably awry, but some sweet domestic scenes soften the proceedings. Henry Wonga
