When HearKittyKitty enter the charts at number 12, the lads decide the pop princesses need a make-over. Danny books a session with renowned photographer Nico, and Tina and Marie prepare for their transformation. Only problem is: Shady Music are skint. Luckily Tony steps in with a job to tide them over - it pays well as long as there are no questions asked.

However, Danny and Shay are worried when they're directed to illegal immigrant Zora and ordered to handcuff her to the radiator.

Matters are further complicated by Swing still mooning over Nancy, the girls demanding tickets to Manchester's social event of the year, and Danny putting Nico in hospital.

What's more, Ricky Lisberg's still on the scene. When he can't tempt the girls with tickets to the party, he devises a new plan to discredit Danny and Shay.

Meanwhile the lads and Swing are becoming fond of Zora. Will they be able to save her from Manchester mafia boss Big Stu?
