Episode Summary

Episode Three
The BBC forces Shirley to apologise on TV to Mrs Oxley. Shirley gave Mrs Oxley a reading and she complained that he'd stolen words from the obituary of a newspaper and used them in the reading. Shirley offers career advice to several people and informs them what he sees of their future occupations. Kininla, Chrissy, Erol, Stella, Kim, Joel, Sylvia and Maria are the unlucky eight to win a place at Spirit Academy. The contestants learn they only have a blanket or mattress to sleep on and only get their dinner if they can predict what it is using their psychic abilities. The Paranormalists: Shirley's Dictaphone wielding apprentice Alf Szczurek (Marc playing another character) is an exorcist and offers his services to householder Louise and her half painted home. After much ghost hunting and sexual talk down his Dictaphone, Alf traps Louise's troublesome ghost in a jam jar. C is for Cat as another letter of the psychic A – Z is revealed. Shirley invites two members of the audience onto the stage to help him perform a Ouija board. Mrs Oxley's dead husband appears to come through and calls his earth bound wife a s**g. Shirley is very satisfied and ends the Ouija board. The other side of Shirley Ghostman: Fast becoming a recognisable face, Shirley buys a pair of stylish shades to hide under as he is fed up of the points and stares. He also pitches some ideas for Shirley Ghostman merchandise. Shirley channels George Frederick Handel who has composed a new piece of music through Shirley. Shirley's body is possessed by George and he conducts a choir as they sing the piece. The music turns out to be a musical dig at Mrs Oxley. Shirley magically disappears at the end of the show.moreless
