It follows a bunch of “man-children” in their 20s, as they attempt to run a pirate radio show in a makeshift recording studio in a Brentford council flat.

What’s series 5 about?

The six new episodes will see DJ Steves (Steve Stamps) have a run-in with the police, while Chabuddy G’s (Chaudhry) dreams come true when he gets an insatiable older girlfriend.

But Kurupt FM is under threat, with the news that the council is planning to knock down the gang’s building to make way for luxury flats.

Shane Allen, controller of BBC Comedy Commissioning, said: “The love for this show is immense and we want to see them off in style, but aren’t expecting Kurupt FM to be any more respectable on [BBC]2.”
