The brickies are back in Stoke-on-Trent, where things are falling behind schedule and a national mortar shortage threatens to grind production to a halt.

Local bricklayer Patch has been drafted in to give the build an extra push. A young father of two, Patch has earmarked a forthcoming family holiday for the moment he hopes to finally pop the question to his long-term girlfriend.

After a falling-out at home, labourer Tom C is still searching for somewhere to stay. His workmates are there for him as he works through his options. He arranges to meet his ex-girlfriend as he looks to get things back on track.

Meanwhile, after years of building homes for other people, Kuda is finally ready to buy his first dream house

Brickies – Thursday at 9.00pm on BBC Three.
