Danny and the Human Zoo BBC1, 9pm
Lenny Henry has been on our screens for so long, it’s easy to forget just how remarkable his career has been. So, this fictionalised account of his early life, which he wrote and co-stars in, should be a real eyeopener. Kascion Franklin plays Danny, a talented teenager growing up in 1970s Dudley. His daily challenges include dealing with his ebullient but strict mother, and trying to get the attention of the Irish girl he’s fallen deeply in lust with, but unlike most other teens, he’s also got an emerging comedy career to worry about.
