Ghosts stars writers and creators Mathew Baynton, Simon Farnaby, Martha Howe-Douglas, Jim Howick, Laurence Rickard and Ben Willbond, with Lolly Adefope, Charlotte Ritchie and Kiell Smith-Bynoe.

In the forthcoming final series, Alison (Ritchie) and Mike (Smith-Bynoe) embark on a journey to seek alternative ways to sustain themselves, pondering the possibility of a new phase that could profoundly impact the lives of the Ghosts.

A teaser for the first episode reveals: “Mike approaches Alison to discuss their finances following the loss of their B&B business. However, Alison is more preoccupied with plotting revenge on the Ghosts for April Fool’s Day and recruits a playful Humphrey to execute her plans.

“But who will prove the hardest to fool? Meanwhile, Mike is shocked to find someone from their insurance company on his doorstep – an unannounced visit to check the details of the gatehouse fire. Can Mike convince her that lightning really can strike thrice?”

Ghosts airs on BBC One and iPlayer from Friday, 6 October. You can catch up with past episodes online now via the BBC iPlayer.
