From reality TV to making millions: What is the cast of The Inbetweeners up to now?
James Buckley is on the new season of Celebrity MasterChef!
The Inbetweeners series ended 13 years ago and the Rudge Park Comprehensive students are now all grown up and are students no more. Inbetweeners co-stars Joe Thomas, who played Simon, and Hannah Tointon, who played Tara, recently welcomed their first child together after being in a relationship for 10 years, proving they are all well and truly grown up. For many of the actors, they have continued acting and gone on to star in some pretty popular TV shows and movies. With James Buckley currently on our TV screens on Celebrity MasterChef, what else is the cast of The Inbetweeners up to now?

The nerdy but loveable Will McKenzie was played by none other than Simon Bird. Since starring on the E4 series, Simon famously went on to star in the Channel 4 sitcom, Friday Night Dinner.
