Mickey Bricks and his team return in January for the last-ever series of BBC One’s Hustle.

Adrian Lester, Robert Vaughn, Robert Glenister, Matt Di Angelo, Kelly Adams are all back for the show’s finale.

The new series sees the gang targeting London’s rich and greedy and, with their grifting skills better than ever, they’re ready to push themselves to the limit in the search for riches.

But with the marks looking meaner and the risks higher, Mickey will need some truly ingenious cons if they’re going to keep alive and out of jail.

The series kicks off with the team plotting to give gold dealer Dexter Gold (Paterson Joseph), famed for parting the elderly from their precious treasures in return for a pittance, a taste of his own medicine.

Masquerading as a renegade army unit, they lure in their greedy mark with the promise of a consignment of looted Libyan gold.

With Dexter chomping at the bit to have a piece of the action, he’s all too ready to strike a deal, but will the team pull off the con before the experts find out the truth?

9.00-10.00pm, Friday 6 January on BBC One and BBC One HD
