Rupert Grint, Luke Pasqualino and Lucien Laviscount are among the all-star cast, who tell the story of a gang of young hustlers who end up in London's dark underbelly of gangsters and criminals.

Season 1 is available to stream now on the BT Player >

Here are five reasons Snatch is your perfect new binge-watch show:

1. You haven't seen anything yet

The first episode of Snatch was a wild ride, but it was just the warm-up for the real adventure that is still to come.

At the end of the first episode, Charlie, Albert and Billy stumbled upon a truck of gold bullion. They might think that they’ve landed upon a life-changing fortune, but as you might have guessed things aren’t  as simple as they first seem.

You can expect, twists, turns and some thrilling games of cat and mouse as the young rogues attempt to keep their heads above the water among the thugs, gangsters and crazy criminals who all want their slice of the cash.

2. The women are in charge

One of the key changes from Guy Ritchie’s film is the increased role of the female leads. Alex De Rakoff and the cast wanted to focus more on the female characters and in Lotti Mott (Phoebe Dynevor) and Chloe Cohen (Stephanie Leonidas), the show has created two electric female characters.

Lotti and Chloe are arguably the smartest and most powerful characters in the show – often running rings around the hapless blokes.

3. Rupert Grint like you've never seen him before

If you still see Ron Weasley whenever you see Rupert Grint on screen, prepare to be shocked by Charlie Cavendish-Scott.

The super posh, aspiring hustler is a character quite unlike anything Grint has played before. He cuts an unlikely hero figure, but you’ll find yourself rooting for Charlie as the series goes on.

4. Hello Marc Warren

If you’ve only seen episode 1, you haven’t met Marc Warren’s DI Bob Fink yet, the local police inspector who also happens to be a scary crime lord.

The Hustle and Mad Dogs star is one of Britain’s finest character actors and he steals every scene that he’s in as the terrifying crooked copper.

5. There is lots more to come
