We follow the story of White Dee as she leaves the Benefit Claims Office behind after being discovered by a big-time agent who promises her a whole new world of fame and fortune, with appearances at star-studded venues like Butlins, Chico's nightclub, Brannigans fun pubs, and the holy grail - an interview in Take A Break.

However, as the trips to Magaluf and 4 packs of lager pour in, Dee soon finds herself a changed women as she begins trading her pot noodles for Lidl lobsters and favouring the more expensive lagers in the corner shop. White Dee was living the high life and loving it. But it doesn't take long for old habits to creep back in, as White Dee soon finds out after a trip back to the Benefit Claims Office...

Everyone knows that celebrity status comes at a price, and it's after a stint in the Big Brother house that White Dee's world finally comes crashing down, as she is arrested for indecent exposure by special agent Gary Busey, taking her right back to her beloved Benefit Claims Office once again.

Alan stars as Cheryl and Gemma Collins in '24 Hours in Celebrity Police Custody'

It's a difficult job looking after celebrities in police custody, and as we quickly find out, while some celebs are cut out for it, others simply are not. Once a suspect is in custody the police have 24 hours to investigate and interview. After that it's either charge or release.

The first celebrity offender to appear in this episode is Cheryl Cole, who tries to cheat her way out of her deception sentence for miming on the X Factor by stating a ridiculous fake name: Cheryl Fernandez Versini. When up for questioning, Cheryl proves her tough Geordie persona by denying all charges and refusing to comply, choosing instead to try and dance her way out of the situation.
