9:30pm – Friday, June 1 on ABC2
Presenters Alex Conran, Paul Wilson and Jessica Clement will appear as they’ve never been seen before.
After exposing hundreds of scams for the public, the hustlers have come up with new ways of keeping their identity secret. They have assembled a range of cunning disguises and characters which they’ll use to keep on exposing daring cons and scams.
And that’s not the only change. Each week Alex, Jess and Paul take a well-known personality and put them into the shoes of a hustler. They are given the inside track, learn the harsh realities of how Britain’s shameless confidence tricksters set out to con us all, and of course, help to warn the public what to watch out for.
Episode Five Jess fights the law, or rather an undercover Alex and Paul, to fleece some film fans.
TV/radio presenter Iain Lee uses his gift of the gab as this week’s celebrity hustler when he becomes part of a bogus workmen scheme.
The hustlers get a group of unwitting job applicants to become their personal shoppers and Alex promises to take the strain at the airport, but ends up taking a lot more. Unsuspecting passengers are left distraught.
