The channel announced yesterday that the drama’s eleventh series will be the last and will air early next year.
Here are some plot teasers for the 14-part final series of Shameless:
» The stalwarts of the Chatsworth find themselves thriving in the Double Dip recession.
» 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 (Jalaal Hartley – The Borgias) and his Jewish cooking mad wife Esther (Isy Suttie – Peep Show) as they disembark on the estate with their four feral children in tow.
» Mimi Maguire (Tina Malone) makes saving the local school her personal mission.
» 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 (Sarah Totty and Sue Vincent).
» Fireworks fly when Avril (Karen Bryson) moves in with her loud and overbearing sister Patreesha (Jacqueline Boatswain – Grange Hill) and niece Mary Mae (introducing 21 year old Adelle Leonce).
» Chesney (Qasim Akhtar) opens up a chemist section in Chescos, run by white Muslim atom bomb on a timer Ramona (Moya Brady).
» Lip Gallagher (Jody Latham) turns up mid series – and nothing has changed between father and son.
