The real hustlers are back for another series, as original scammers Jessica-Jane Clement, Alexis Conran, Paul Wilson and recent recruits Jazz Lintott and Polly Parsons return in The Real Hustle. Once again they are joined by celebrity friends who will help them con unsuspecting members of the public into handing over their hard-earned money.
Ex-Boyzone member, Shane Lynch, goes undercover as a tramp to help the hustlers pull off a devious heist. He manages to convince an unsuspecting mark that he has already been conned by Alex and Jess who are posing as officers carrying out security checks in the area. Asked to take part in a sting operation to catch them red-handed, the mark does not know who to trust. Can Paul, Polly, Jazz and Shane persuade the mark to help them?
And the whole team join forces to con a couple of young guys on a night out into getting involved in a simple card trick. Jess convinces them that they cannot possibly lose, but after betting everything in their wallets to win, they are left wondering what went wrong.
The Real Hustle airs from Thursday, 6 June at 8pm WAT on BBC Entertainment (DStv channel 120).
