Hustlers Jessica Jane Clement, Alexis Conran and Paul Wilson are back with another series of The Real Hustle. Together they hve carried out over 500 scams and stolen over £1,000,000, making this the most successful scam show of all time.

Joined by new recruits Polly Parsons and Jazz Lintott plus a host of celebrity guest hustlers, their job is to expose the tricks of the criminals' trade so that you don't get scammed.

Shameless and EastEnders star Jody Latham joins the Hustlers in a crazy con starring Alex as the Mad Greek, a compulsive gambler who just can't help betting on anything and everything. Paul plays his gambling buddy and manages to convince the mark that he can't lose as 'Nick the Greek' has a 'tell', an unwitting giveaway sign. Drawn in by the promise of a big-money win, the mark agrees to help Paul cheat and soon finds himself embroiled in the biggest bet of his life.

Paul also gets down and dirty to play a tramp who, on finding an envelope stuffed with cash in the street, manages to convince one mark that he's the honourable type. The mark is bowled over by his honesty, but is soon left with a very bad taste in his mouth.
