Mr Gilbert gets to torment Simon once again

Last month, Channel 4 aired a special The Inbetweeners reunion show, bringing back the main cast for a two-hour celebration marking a decade since the series first started. Despite the best of intentions however, The Inbetweeners: Fwends Reunited did not go down well with fans.

However, another mini-Inbetweeners reunion is happening this year.

The contestants for season 8 of the Dave panel show Taskmaster – which is of course hosted by Gregg Davies – have been announced. And amongst them is Joe Thomas, meaning that Simon and Mr Gilbert will be reunited once again.

The other announced contestants are Iain Stirling (aka the voice of Love Island), Lou Sanders, Paul Sinha from The Chase, and Sian Gibson.

Since the end of The Inbetweeners and the two movie spin-offs, Joe Thomas has kept busy by starring in student comedy-drama Fresh Meat and sitcom White Gold, as well as British film The Festival.

James Buckley – aka Jay from the showapologised to fans following the airing of the Fwends Reunited special, calling it a ‘car crash‘.

“Feeling pretty hated right now,” he said on Twitter.

“Im sorry to anyone who feels let down with last nights show. Im especially upset as it really is the fans that made the inbetweeners a success, it certainly wasn’t me. I might do an explanation video on my YT, or might just leave it & move on #sorry.”
