A Very English Scandal (BBC One, 9pm)
Hugh Grant stars in this brand new fact-based drama about Jeremy Thorpe, the leader of England’s Liberal Party in the 1960s and 1970s. Thorpe has been having an affair with a stable hand named Norman Scott, which, before the decriminalisation of homosexuality, was not a great idea for a politician. As his political career takes off, Jeremy is adamant that his former lover has to remain silent, despite the fact that Norman grows increasingly resentful.

Simon stopped this guy halfway through his first attempt and said his performance was “cold and mechanical”, before instructing him to go get a glass of water.
