‘Outnumbered’ Series 5 start date announced

The final series of Outnumbered will begin later this month.

The comedy returns to BBC One for six new 30-minute episodes on Wednesday 29 January at 9pm.

Highlights in Series 5 will include:

» Dad is besieged by unreliable technologies and his ever-larger and more complex children.

» Mum has a brand new office job but is finding it hard to combine the inevitable crises at home with presenting a professional veneer.

» Jake is sporting a new tattoo – of sorts – and is also learning to drive. Any nearby pedestrians might want to dive for cover.

» Meanwhile, tone-deaf Ben finds himself cast in the lead role of his school play – a musical version of Spartacus. Karen has decided to no longer be blonde and she is starting secondary school, where she quickly finds herself in conflict with, well, just about everyone (including the Head Teacher).

» The dreaded Auntie Angela also puts in an unexpected appearance, with her latest toy-boy in tow and lots of unsolicited opinions.
