TV Tonight: Champion continues its south London sibling rap battle | Television


9.15pm, BBC One

Family tensions thicken in this promising south London-set drama about the Champions – two twentysomething siblings who go head to head on the rap scene. Vita (Déja J Bowens) has finally stepped out of her brother Bosco’s (Malcolm Kamulete) shadow to record a single – but it’s not plain sailing. Meanwhile, Bosco’s success dwindles and he is served the ultimate humiliation on stage. Hollie Richardson

The blind audition phase of the teenybopper sing-off wraps up with coaches, Pixie Lott, Ronan Keating and Danny “McFly” Jones looking to complete their rosters ahead of next week’s final.

Possible pushy parent syndrome in the penultimate episode of this series about a London MMA school. Coach Steve’s daughter Chloe is preparing for her first fight back after an operation.

A meaty case for the Swedish detectives, spiced with just the right amount of personal intrigue. The death of a flea market trader seems innocuous until the security services mysteriously poke their noses in – a tightly plotted story ends up exposing more than one detective’s weakness. Jack Seale

Film choice

Broker, Saturday, 10.15pm, Sky Cinema Premiere
A heartwarming Korean drama about two men who sell abandoned babies for adoption on the black market seems improbable. But in the hands of director Hirokazu Kore-eda, who made Shoplifters, and amiable star Song Kang-ho (the working-class dad in Parasite), it works beautifully. Song’s laundry owner and his young sidekick (Gang Dong-won), who was adopted himself, are joined by the birth mother (Lee Ji-eun) as they hit the road in search of a buyer for her newborn child. An unexpected quirky pleasure. Simon Wardell

Train to Busan, Saturday, 1.40am, Film4
A film that kicks off with a zombie deer is bound to be fun. And so it proves with Yeon Sang-ho’s South Korean action horror. The passengers on a train journey from Seoul to Busan are our focus amid a wider apocalyptic scenario as infection turns the populace into violent, undead killers. A mixed bunch include a neglectful father and his young daughter, a pregnant woman and her husband, and a school baseball team (the bats come in handy). The railway carriages are soon turned into an obstacle course of murder and mayhem, cowardice and courage. SW
