A Twitter update by Alexis Conran, presenter of BBC3 show The Real Hustle has sparked a rumour that Ashley Banjo is to appear on the show as a celebrity scammer.

So far the 2011 season of The Real Hustle has not been announced by the BBC press office or confirmed by the show’s producers, although recent photos submitted to Twitter by Alexis Conran reveal production is underway.

The Real Hustle is a factual entertainment series on BBC Three produced by Objective Productions featuring Alexis Conran, Paul Wilson and Jessica-Jane Clement as a team of hustlers working undercover to reveal scams played out on unsuspecting members of the public.
