I refuse to believe the Outnumbered kids are adults: Here’s what they’re all up to now
I suddenly feel one million years old
Outnumbered was an absolutely iconic TV show of our childhoods. For years we watched Ben always try and invent something dangerous, Karen ask cute questions, and Jake get annoyed at the both of them. But the show first aired 15 years ago and, as all children do, the Outnumbered kids are now all grown up (brb, sobbing). But what, I hear you ask, are the Outnumbered children up to now?
The three actors who played the Outnumbered kids have seemingly met up recently, as they’ve posted pics on Instagram of them in what looks like a pub. Tyger Drew-Honey, who played Jake, captioned it simply “Family. #grateful”, whilst Ramona Marquez, who played Karen, wrote some kind of in-joke (“Slip central as Daniel calls it”???) just to prove they’re all still close. Daniel Roche, who played their brother Ben, hasn’t posted yet, but one can only assume that when he does it will be something to make the rest of us feel ridiculously old.
Here’s what each of the three Outnumbered kids have been up to since the show ended, and where they all are now:
Tyger Drew-Honey – Jake
Tyger Drew-Honey was probably the first boy you ever fancied – he’s now 26 years old, and he’s still acting.
He played Greg Davies’ son in BBC series Cuckoo (you know, the one with Taylor Lautner), as well as starring in CBBC show Friday Download. Tyger has been in loads more films, TV shows and theatre productions since Outnumbered.
He has 54,000 Insta followers and posts lots of pics of him and his dogs. Tyger also has an Insta video showing him solving a Rubik’s Cube in under a minute, which is pretty impressive.
Tyger went on Celebs Go Dating a few years ago, but has since said he “hated every minute of it”.
Earlier this year, he told Metro: “I didn’t enjoy that show at all. I was struggling with a few things in my life at that time and it was possibly the worst thing I could have done.
“I had such bad anxiety about how I was going to come across. I hated every minute of it and, yeah, my chat-up lines were kind of shit.” He added: “I have a girlfriend now who I love very much.”
Daniel Roche – Ben
Daniel has changed a LOT since playing Ben. He started at King’s College London back in 2018, and immediately joined their rugby club – I mean, just look at this pic of him. He’s absolutely stacked:
He’s also been part of the Wasps Rugby Academy, Middlesex Rugby and played for Rugby School.
Daniel apparently loves a big night out – in the past he’s been spotted at Fab N Fresh, a favourite haunt of all Birmingham students, and was once filmed chanting “ketamine” at Boomtown. His Instagram pics regularly feature nights out, too.
Daniel has just over 40k followers right now, and his Instagram bio says he’s an actor from London. Despite this, however, according to his IMDb Daniel hasn’t acted in anything since 2016.
Daniel was born in October 1999, making him 22 right now.
Ramona Marquez – Karen
Judging by her Instagram, Ramona is a big bucket hat fan and regularly dyes her hair different colours – those blonde curls from her Outnumbered days are long gone.
Honestly? Ramona is SUCH a vibe. She’s vegan, has a load of tattoos, her wardrobe is to die for and she looks like a walking Depop advert.
Back in 2019, The Tab revealed Ramona was a fresher at Manchester Uni, and she was regularly spotted around Manchester bars and clubs.
She reportedly studies Spanish and Mandarin, and would have just finished her third year this summer.
When she was younger, Ramona acted in a handful of things other than Outnumbered – including The King’s Speech and Arthur Christmas. Ramona was born in 2001, making her 21 years old right now.
Ramona has over 110k followers on Instagram, and looks incredibly fun. Back in 2017, Ramona famously lost her phone at Boomtown – only to have it returned to her by someone else who went to the festival.
