Hustle, Series 6 Episode 5 of 6

Drama series about a group of con artists.

The gang are left in shock as the unthinkable happens - Mickey is conned! Some lowlife rips him off by selling him a useless mobile phone online. According to the age-old laws of grifting, when a grifter is conned he's guaranteed a run of bad luck. What will the gang do if Mickey loses his mojo? They head to Eddie's to drown their sorrows, only to find it heaving with customers. It seems Lady Luck has switched her allegiance and the chums need to do something to restore the balance.

The hustlers set about researching the company that conned Mickey, leading them to Mervyn Lloyd, an outrageously cocky and slimy businessman who would sell his own grandmother to make a fast buck. Mervyn sells the latest mod cons through the internet but, unlike more reputable retailers, he doesn't worry if they work or not. Mervyn dreams of working with famous entrepreneurs like Dragons' Den's Deborah Meaden, Peter Jones and Duncan Bannatyne but he has none of their integrity or morals.

The gang work on a plan to reel Mervyn in. Mickey is forced to step aside thanks to his rotten luck, so the con-running baton passes to Ash. His brief is to convince Mervyn that Albert is on the verge of creating the next big thing - but what? The team need to hatch a foolproof plan to snare Mervyn in order to get Mickey's mojo back, otherwise his bad luck may be here to stay.
