'The Inbetweeners' Star Says Reunion Wouldn't Work Because They're All Too Old
All of our dreams have been shattered. Just when we thought everything in the world was right after James Buckley or 'Jay from The Inbetweeners' teased a reunion it's been well and truly shot down.
Because Blake Harrison (or Neil as he's better known) has said there won't be a reunion as they're 'too old' to get away with the same outrageous humour.
Has nobody told him that age is just a number or what?
The 32-year-old actor shrugged off calls for a new series and insisted the cast couldn't make the same 'offensive' jokes at this stage. We dare you all to try though. Go on.
Speaking on ITV's Lorraine, he said: "I'm pretty sure we're done now, we're all too old. We kind of feel like we're constantly pulling the wool over people's eyes and we're like 'we've got away with another one, how have we done this?' So I think we should probably quit while we're ahead."
Blake's assessment of the sad situ came after his former co-star Simon Bird (otherwise known as Will McKenzie or 'briefcase wanker') also dashed the hopes of the nation and dismissed speculation that the show could make a comeback for its 10th anniversary this year, as reported by the Metro.
But, we've still got hope (sort of) because James Buckley (bullshitting Jay) added fuel to the fire recently by sharing a snap of the stars, including Joe Thomas (Simon), and co-creators Damon Beesley and Iain Morris, joking that it was a production meeting for series four.

And here's a little bit more good news to take away the sting of The Inbetweeners news - Iain Morris suggested over Twitter that a spin-off show called 'Not Now John' could be creeping into production meetings.
It would apparently include good ol' Mr Gilbert and also Mr Kennedy. And it would be incredible.
But here's to raining on the metaphorical parade again guys because Greg Davies, who portrayed the spiteful teacher, is adamant he'll never reprise his role for the programme because he's played a sir too many times and thinks it's best it's left to rest on a high.
He said: "It's a case of writing what you know. But I won't play another teacher."
What's wrong with all these actors? Do it for the people, LADs.
