New series starts on monday 9th Jan 10pm Channel 4.
The new series kicks off with The Chatsworth Estate in a time of darkest austerity.
The Gallaghers and half the estate are evicted as part of Operation New Start - a multi-agency crackdown on the benefits culture of those in social housing, led by Carmen Kenaway - played by Morwenna Banks and her toxic sidekick, Feeney - played by Judy Flynn.
Jamie and Karen are thrust into the roles of guardians of the estate when evictees turn to them for help. While things look bleak for the majority, all is bright for Jackson, who is now a fully qualified teacher.
Carl is just days away from qualifying as a policeman, but Frank's disapproval threatens his graduation.
But worse than this - Frank needs glasses. For the first time, he must confront the possibility that he may be a less than perfect physical specimen.Shameless info
