It has been a total treat joining Rob Rinder and Rylan Clark on their cultural odyssey, which along the way has turned into a tender journey of soul-searching and friendship. They finish in Rome, where Rylan opens up about what it all means to “a ginger kid from a council flat in Stepney Green” who was expected to “stay in his lane”. There’s lots of fun on the agenda, too: dressing as a macaroni comes more easily to Rylan than Rob. Hollie Richardson

Tenet (Christopher Nolan, 2020), 10pm, BBC Two
Two quotes from Christopher Nolan’s time-flipping 2020 thriller sum it up neatly: “Don’t try to understand it, feel it” and “Does your head hurt yet?” Just go with the flow and you’ll have a fun time negotiating his drama of high-tech espionage and war, as John David Washington’s US agent tries to foil Russian criminal Sator (Kenneth Branagh) and his backers from the future in their plot to rewrite the present. The play-rewind-replay of heists, fights and car chases is stupifying but exhilarating. Simon Wardell
