The fifth season of BBC One’s comedy series Citizen Khan will premiere on Friday November 4th at 8:30pm, it has been announced.
Created by Adil Ray, Citizen Khan is set in the capital of British Pakistan – Sparkhill, Birmingham – and follows the trials and tribulations of self-appointed Muslim community leader Mr Khan and his long suffering family. The comedy series is produced by BBC In-house Comedy and stars Adil Ray as Mr Khan, Shobu Kapoor as Mrs Khan, Maya Sondhi as Shazia Khan and Bhavna Limbachia as Alia Khan. London Mayor Sadiq Khan guest stars this season.
In the opening episode of the show’s fifth season, Mr Khan make an exhibition of himself in front of a packed house at Edgbaston Cricket Ground. Having been made to sleep in the car by Mrs Khan after forgetting their wedding anniversary, Mr Khan is on a mission to make amends. But his boast to Dave (Matthew Cottle) that he knows local boy Moeen Ali backfires when Amjad suggests he could get the famous England all-rounder to make a celebrity appearance at the fundraiser that Mrs Khan and Shazia are helping organise. Mr Khan has no option but to get to the cricket match and find Moeen and do whatever it takes.
