Episode Summary

Episode Four
Shirley tells the audience about a cheeky e - mail he has received from Sue in Derby concerning his weight. Shirley explains that success brings money and money brings food. Shirley uses his powers to explore people's problems using their bodies. It's the second week of term at Spirit Academy and one person has to leave. Shirley sets the contestants a tarot card challenge and observes the exercise as they give one another readings. Stella is chosen to leave Spirit Academy. The Paranormalists: Shirley's apprentice Ian Jackson (Marc playing another character) meets male witch Kevin Carlyon. They go into the woods at night and perform a ritual to rid Ian of his ghosts. The other side of Shirley Ghostman: Shirley meets a diet expert who gives him some advice on his waistline. Shirley also goes to a posh restaurant for a bite to eat with Princess Diana. Shirley points out to the waiter that he will be channelling Princess Diana hence he will have to eat both meals. Shirley eats and drinks way too much and gives his phone number to the waiter. Shirley channels Colonel Sanders who reveals the secrets to his recipes. The channelling goes too far and Shirley is quite distressed when the spirit leaves his body. B is for Baby as the psychic A – Z continues. Shirley performs 'Big Boned'. A new song by Karen Carpenter, which sounds remarkably like ‘Close To You'. Shirley finishes the show by lying in a coffin and being carried away by four handsome pallbearers.moreless

    • Shirley: What I'm trying to say is that I'm in touch with the spirits. And no that doesn't mean I've got a friend that works down Oddbins.
      Oddbins is an off license.
