The current crop ... Strictly Come Dancing 2019.

Dial M for Middlesbrough

9.15pm, Gold

Johnny Vegas and Sian Gibson are back as Terry and Gemma from Draper’s Tours in the latest instalment of their comic film series. After their coach breaks down, the pair find themselves making an unplanned stay at a grim caravan park where the residents are being killed off one by one in Agatha Christie-like circumstances. Torrential rain has cut off all the exits and anyone could be a suspect, from the park’s creepy owners Evie and Jed to mismatched young couple Penny (Ambreen Razia) and Phil (Jason Forbes). Murderous fun. Ammar Kalia

5.45pm, Channel 5

As the shiniest Saturday night show hits 15, here is a look at its history.

Britain’s Wildest Weather 2019

7.30pm, Channel 4

There is always a queasy hint of the climate crisis being repurposed as high-octane entertainment about these annual docs. But even so, plenty of the footage – mostly obtained by citizen journalists – is extraordinary. Expect extreme heat, record-breaking rain and an avalanche. Phil Harrison

From Abbey Road to railways ... Rod Stewart.

From surviving prostate cancer to his now famous model railway hobby, Rod Stewart sits down with Dermot O’Leary to talk through his career. There are cheeky anecdotes about his tempestuous love life, as well as encounters with Motown greats and Abbey Road recording sessions. AK

The Sinner

9.10pm, BBC Four

The intense potboiler wraps up its second season with a double bill front-loaded with revelations. Damaged detective Harry (Bill Pullman) intuits the truth about Julian’s disappearance from care, but will he be able to reacquire his young murder suspect before Vera (Carrie Coon) and her Mosswood cult intervene?
