The creepy robot doll in Squid Game will have a boyfriend in season 2

It's looking like contestants will have two giant creepy dolls to deal with

Squid Game season two is finally confirmed to be on its way after months of rumours - and not only do we have confirmation direct from the horse's mouth - but we've even got word of what could be a game-changing new character: the Squid Game doll's boyfriend.

Oh good, now there are two of them...

That's right, after the second series was officially announced on Sunday evening after Netflix tweeted a short clip of the show's now-infamous doll counting down and revealing a number two in her eye, the streaming giant went on to reveal a note from writer, director and executive producer, Hwang Dong-hyuk, explaining what fans might be able to expect in the next season.

As well as returning characters like Gi-hun (Lee Jung-jae), the Front Man (Lee Byung-hun) and the doll itself, Young-hee - not to mention the possibility of "the man in the suit with ddakji" popping back as well - Hwang revealed that the Red Light-Green Light doll has a partner.

As many on social media have noted, Young-hee is based on a popular children's character seen in Korean textbooks throughout the 1970s and 1980s, alongside which was her boyfriend, Cheol-su - the pair essentially doubling as an equivalent to Jack and Jill.

Fans are already reacting to the news of his inclusion, though we suspect he wouldn't be as friendly-looking as this:
