Season 5

Adrian Lester returns for the fifth series of Hustle, aided by a new crew, to pull off the most audacious and sophisticated cons so far...

Following his stint in Australia selling the Sydney Opera House to an unsuspecting punter, Mickey has returned to a new London.

The credit crunch has hit Britain and while the majority of people are tightening their belts, there are still a scurrilous and greedy few who are getting ever richer from others' losses – Mickey is keen to put new plans into action to extract their cash.

From priceless paintings to prized necklaces and inadvertently saving community centres – if there is anopportunity to be found and money to be made, then you can be sure that Mickey and the team will be there, ready to teach the immoral and materialistic members of society a valuable lesson.

In the Season 5 premiere:

With a new crew in place, Mickey decides to con intellectual property experts Carlton and Harry, whose ruthless business practices have led to a suicide.

Posing as a hot new PR company, Mickey and Emma sell the pair a gimmick to promote the "Spider's Web", a security device for precious works of art.

Naturally the con artists have a hidden agenda, but when rookie grifter Sean messes up a simple task, will Mickey regret taking on someone so green to play the long cons?
