Is it possible for Rishi Sunak to make a major political comeback on tonight’s TV?

Rishi Sunak Up Close – Tonight

8.30pm, ITV1

It is likely that Rishi Sunak’s involvement in British politics will come to an end soon, so there is no use in trying to learn more about him. However, this article serves as a complement to January’s documentary about Keir Starmer, providing a summary of the prime minister’s notable achievements thus far (such as his success in the hedge fund industry and his failed attempts at leadership) and speculating if this unimpressive politician has the potential for a monumental political resurgence. Phil Harrison.

9pm, Gold

In this third installment, the Big Yin sets his sights on various sacred beliefs, starting with Scottish pride in this first episode. What aspects contribute to one’s pride in being Scottish? Is it the less-than-stellar folk songs (“Written in London”) or the harsh climate (“Scottish people are conceived while their parents are fully clothed”)? – Ali Catterall

Sort Of

10.15pm, Sky Comedy

Bilal Baig’s thoughtful LGBTQ+ sitcom comes to a close with Sabi (Baig), who identifies as gender-fluid, and their sister Aqsa (Supinder Wraich) finally addressing their unresolved conflicts. Meanwhile, viewers are left wondering if Aqsa and Izzy (Varun Saranga) will take their relationship to the next level.
