TV tonight: My Brilliant Friend ends with tension, insults and fights | Television

My Brilliant Friend
9pm, Sky Atlantic

The Neapolitan delight concludes with a double bill of drama. Lenù’s feminism is causing tension between her and Pietro, but there’s even more trouble ahead when Rebels Pasquale and Nadia turn up at her house in Florence, throwing insults around. Later, the friends go on holiday and their peace is interrupted by a fight between Lila’s son and Lenù’s daughters. Hannah Verdier

Chef Ramsay is back with two new tasks, in the show that will see him invest £ 150,000 of his own money in a winning food entrepreneur. The 11 contestants must master salmon smoking in a Hackney Wick restaurant, then serve a woodland feast on an open fire. Easy. Hollie Richardson

Tall tales… Greta Gerwig and Lola Kirke in Mistress America.

Mistress America (Noah Baumbach, 2015), 2.20am, Film4
For this week’s Greta Gerwig / Noah Baumbach fix, take your pick from this or Frances Ha, which precedes it. Both feature co-writer Gerwig as an effervescent New Yorker about town, full of ideas – some delusional – but blessed with enthusiasm and a beguiling nature. In 2015’s very funny Mistress America, Gerwig’s would-be restaurateur Brooke becomes an object of fascination for her new stepsister, Lola Kirke’s awkward literature student Tracy. Fiction and reality jockey for position as Tracy finds inspiration for her short stories in her new friend. Simon Wardell
