by Nathan Crudden

PEOPLE LIKE USIn the penultimate episode of this series we catch up with the Wakefields, who are putting the recent spooky activity down to Malcolm – their resident poltergeist.

Malcolm has become such a nuisance that Karen has called upon local ghostbusters to try and contact him. Amber and Paul aren’t nearly as convinced, but still get caught up in what the ghost hunters find. When the Wakefields think they have got evidence of Malcolm on camera, they call back their hired ghost hunters for one last showdown with their pesky poltergeist.

Likely lads Aaron, 21, and Mikee, 20, are best friends who have both been laid off from their low paid jobs. They are determined to make something of themselves and so they have decided to start their own painting and decorating business. Paid work is hard to come by though, so their first job is building a wheelchair ramp for Aaron’s nana who has not been able to leave her home in over a month. It will not pay the bills, but providing her with a vital lifeline will give them great job satisfaction. Will the good word of their business spread so the two lads can become their own bosses?

We also get to see 27-year-old Javeno, a fitness instructor who is on a one man mission to get Harpurhey fit.

That however, is not enough for Javeno, who is now planning a free mass workout day to get the local community to do something about their health and fitness. Can this exercise guru get his community fit?
