TV tonight: Will Young opens up about losing his twin brother to alcoholism | Television

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

When Will Young was winning over Saturday night audiences on Pop Idol back in 2002, behind the scenes he was trying to look after his brother Rupert who was living with alcoholism. This incredibly candid film sees Will (always so charming, while wearing his heart on his sleeve) and his parents tell Rupert’s story. He also speaks to people having to cope with alcoholism in their families – a conversation with a charity worker about her dad will cause a tear or two. Hollie Richardson

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