The stalwarts of the Chatsworth are thriving in the Double Dip recession always a law unto themselves, always with family at their core, living in their robust micro climate. Stella Gallagher runs the Gallagher roost with a rod of steel - aged six! Jamie Maguire discovers he isn't a pure blood Maguire and introduces the estate to his Muslim half-brother Kassi and his Jewish cooking-mad wife Esther as they disembark on the estate with their three feral children in tow. Mimi Maguire makes saving the local school her personal mission. Feckless patriarch Frank finds himself climbing the employment ladder as the janitor of "St Mimi's" School and falls into the arms of the Gastric Bandits - a prostitute double act, Sherilee and Derilee. Fireworks fly when Avril moves in with her loud and overbearing sister Patreesha and niece Mary Mae. Chesney opens up a chemist section in Chescos, run by white Muslim atom bomb on a timer Remona. And Lip Gallagher turns up mid series - and nothing has changed between father and son. The eleventh, and ultimate series, is a suitably Shameless finale for this blisteringly funny and offbeat drama series.
