As the 11th series of Shameless trundles on, Chesney (Qasim Akhtar) employs pharmacist Remona to run a chemist concession at Chesco's, though her Islamic fundamentalism soon begins to worry the shopkeeper. Elsewhere, Patreesha (Jacqueline Boatswain) makes a discovery as she tries to get sister Avril a job at the car wash, and the police come after Kassi (Jalaal Hartley). At least an arrest might mean more screen-time for his wife Esther (Isy Suttie), who's been a welcome addition to the show's frankly bonkers final run.
