Summary Edit

Albert decides to pay a nostalgic visit to an old haunt, only to find it’s been pulled down by ruthless property tycoon and former 80s game show host, Dale Ridley (played by Mark Williams).

Cue the Hustle gang to deliver their special form of retribution... Posing as international businessmen, the team lure Dale into a scam, convincing him to purchase the television studios that fired him in his showbiz heyday on their behalf. Will the temptation to get revenge on his old employers be enough to trick the greedy entrepreneur?

A spanner is thrown into the works, however, with the unexpected arrival of Ash’s 11 year old godson, Alfie (Sammy Williams). Will the aspiring grifter be a hindrance or a help?
