Episode Summary

Episode Seven
Shirley tells the audience he is cooking on gas in tonight's show. Shirley visits Vauxhall City Farm and talks to the animals. He tells the farm owner that his animals are cracking jokes to one another and that one of the horses wants to visit Brazil. At Spirit Academy the final four contestants have to fight for a place in next weeks final. Shirley challenges the contestant's abilities to channel spirits on mass. Kininla is voted out of Spirit Academy. Shirley is drawn to two members of the audience, a young man and an older lady. The spirits tell Shirley they're a couple and are having problems in the relationship. After some words of advice from Shirley, the young man tells Shirley they don't know one another. Shirley changes tack and says the spirits are telling him they shouldn't be a couple anyway as they are not suited. Shirley's apprentice Ian Jackson (Marc playing another character) meets Bernard Ilsley, an Extra – Terrestrial Medium. Bernard channels an alien so Ian can ask some questions. Ian is hoping his dead parents will come through but the alien says this is not possible. X is for Xylophones as the penultimate psychic A – Z is revealed. Shirley invites a young man from the audience to join him on stage whilst he channels a spirit. Shirley's body is taken over by Marilyn Monroe. As Marilyn, Shirley seductively flaunts his body in the face of the young man and sings Happy Birthday. Much of the audience are reduced to tears of laughter as they watch. Shirley gets his body back and leaps up from the young man's lap in shock. Last Days: Shirley conducts an experiment which will tell him how a celebrity will meet their maker. Shirley glues on a beard and becomes Richard Branson. Unleashed onto the streets as Richard, Shirley decides he needs to break some records. Including ‘talking out of arse', ‘head tapping', and ‘spinning'. The final record, ‘glass gherkin eating' leaves Shirley spitting blood and Richard dead. Shirley performs ‘God Is The King', a new song by Freddie Mercury. Shirley is joined on stage by some sexy dancers.moreless
