Series 5 trailer

BAFTA award-winning People Just Do Nothing is back!

Featuring: Allan 'Seapa' Mustafa (Grindah), Hugo Chegwin (Beats), Asim Chaudhry (Chabuddy G) & Steve Stamp (Steves).

Chabuddy G at the car boot sale

Chabuddy G does his best job to get a good spot at the car boot sale.

Featuring: Asim Chaudhry (Chabuddy G) & Sandra Huggett (Woman In Hi-Vis).

Deleted Scenes: Community Service With DJ Steves

In these scenes, many not seen on TV, DJ Steves talks about how his community service is going.

Featuring: Steve Stamp (Steves).


After the confiscation of their gear at the end of the last series, Grindah and Beats have been reduced to MCing for another pirate station. The Man can't keep Kurupt FM down for long, though, and soon they are exploiting the goodwill of a local car-boot sale, as Chabuddy G's wheeler-dealer alter ego "Dhal boy" comes to the fore.
