With top salesman Little Gary Patel back in jail, the PhoneShop staff's position as 'Kings of the High Street' may be in jeopardy for the first time. Manager Lance's secret weapon, new recruit and graduate Christopher, looks like he's more likely to be a damp squib, so it's up to 'Sales Professionals' Ashley, Jerwayne and Janine to ensure that all threats are neutralised, all enemies defeated, and that every mug punter within five square miles gets locked down to the worst, most expensive mobile phone contract known to mankind.
