The new series introduced two new characters, Clare played by Jessica Forrest and Leonie played by Lucy Hutchinson. Jordan Brown made her last regular appearance as Esme in "The Ghostel", and then reappeared, although not in person, in "That Sinking Feeling", "Ghost Swappers" and "Midsummer Night's Nightmare", she reappeared in person in "It's A Wonderful Afterlife". Kieran Alleyne was absent in "Truth or Scare", "Ghost Swappers", "An Inspector Calls" and "Groundbog Day". He returned in "Midsummer Night's Nightmare" following his brief absence. In "Choc Horror", Jordan Brown reappeared but did not play Esme, instead playing Elly, a relative of Jimmy, Rich and Dylan. Episode 13, titled "It's A Wonderful Afterlife", was a Christmas Special. This was the final series.[1]
