the inbetweeners

The 31-year-old, who starred on the hit E4 show The Inbetweeners for two years as Jay Cartwright has opened up about whether his little ones will ever get to watch their dad ons screen in it. 

And it looks like the answer is a firm 'no'.

We absolutely LOVED James as Jay, the teen lad prone to slight exaggerations about his experience with the opposite sex.

While James was hysterical in the role, it probably isn't one he's gonna want his kids to see.

Which is fair enough as the actor is now worlds away from the character, having been married to Scottish former model Claire Meek for six years.

The couple also have two children, seven-year-old Harrison and five-year-old Jude.  

On why he won't allow his sons to watch the cult TV show that made him famous, he says that, ''It’s different for me as I’m supposed to be their dad. I don’t want them to see me behaving in that way.''


Hmmm interesting #Inbetweeners

He continued, ''I already have very little respect from them to begin with and I don’t want to lose it completely.''

The Inbetweeners, which also starred Simon Bird, Blake Harrison and Joe Thomas ran for three series from 2008 until 2010, focusing on four teenage boys as the tried to get through school and the minefield that is being 17.

Does he think it could still be as successful if it was on telly today?

James says that, ''Nowadays, it feels very black and white with comedy. There’s no in-between, it’s just, “This person said this on television – isn’t that terrible?” And it’s killing comedy, because you’re not allowed to joke about anything, it seems. There seems to be joke police nowadays.''

He added, ''It seems to be cool at the moment to be offended by stuff, and that’s a shame.''

We agree James – bring back the good aul days of The Inbetweeners.



It looks like Simon Bird has grown up a lot since his days on The Inbetweeners as the comedian has revealed that he is now a father.

In an interview with Heat Magazine the actor admitted his wife of four years Lisa Owens gave birth to a baby boy six months ago.

During the joint interview with his Friday Night Dinner co-star Tom Rosenthal, the 31-year-old actor joked that his son is already “quite judgemental” after Tom said that Simon’s baby has a “slight judgemental air about him”.

Simon – who met his wife while preparing a script at Cambridge – then said: “He’s only six months old but I feel like he’s already patronising me.  It’s great.”

The Surrey native’s big break came when he was cast as Will McKenzie in E4’s hit show The Inbetweeners back in 2008.

He has since starred in the two Inbetweeners movies and Friday Night Dinner, as well as creating a comedy panel show called The King Is Dead for the BBC.




If you’ve wondered if The Inbetweeners could ever replace One Direction then fear not – the answer is here. 

And it’s a no. Definitely, definitely NOT.

Watch Joe, Blake, James and Simon take on One D’s Steal My Girl on Radio One. They literally killed it. Our ears are bleeding…

Still though…good effort boys. 




Our favourite cheeky lads are returning to the big screen and this time, they’re heading to Australia.

A hilarious short trailer of The Inbetweeners sequel was released today and from this sneak peak alone, we can’t wait for what lies ahead.



This is the best news ever!

The Inbetweeners Movie 2 will be coming to Irish and UK cinemas on August 6th.

Jay, Simon, Will and Neil reunite for another holiday (because the last one went so well), this time to Australia.

We can only imagine the trouble they are going to get into – it’s going to be hilarious!

The creators of the original TV series, Damon Beesley and Iain Morris are writing and directing the feature film.

And just in case you’ve forgotten how amazing the first movie was, here is a reminder!
