Further details

As part of their general studies course, the principal has bought the college a local radio licence so the gang decides to do a radio play.

Ollie discovers his creative streak as both playwright and director, being the self-proclaimed most talented person in the group.

Following some less-than-spectacular auditions, Ollie succumbs to the temptations of the casting couch and gives Jas the lead role, much to Chloe's chagrin.

There's an awe-inspiring homage to Murder She Wrote as the gang lurch into a disastrous performance of the radio play complete with long pauses, dodgy accents and the worst sound effects ever.

And things go from bad to worse when DK is let loose on the microphone.
