Alison and the team are in South Africa on a special mission to bring an overweight orang-utan back to the UK. 13-year-old Oshine has been thoroughly spoilt growing up in the lap of luxury. She’s been treated like a human child and even walks upright. Owner Brenda has decided the time’s come for her to live with her own kind, and she's asked Alison to re-home her at the park. But how do you transport such an overweight orang-utan safely? It will be up to Animal Director Jeremy to work his magic and gain Oshine’s trust.
