Sex Education Star Mimi Keene Reveals Most Embarrassing Scene In Season 3

Sex Education star Mimi Keene has opened up about the one scene that left her feeling a little embarrassed and you might be surprised to learn that it had absolutely nothing to do with sex.

Yep, while you'd probably be forgiven for thinking that it would be one of the show's more risqué scenes that left Keene feeling red-faced, it was actually her attempting to roll a joint that left her flustered.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Keene, who plays mean girl Ruby Matthews in the show, was asked which scene from the new season was the most embarrassing to film.

"There was one scene where Ruby's supposed to be rolling weed," Keene explained. "I had to do it. Ruby had very long nails, and there's a really close-up shot.

"I'm doing this, and I'm trying to look like I'm really good at it because I'm trying to roll the end and tear it off.

"There were so many shots where I'm trying to - and I just ripped the whole thing. I was like, 'Oh, for god's sake.' And then in the end, I just had it in one hand and then pretended it was there. It was a little pretending."

However, Keene didn't let the little mishap upset her too much - she went on to admit that while it was 'embarrassing' it was also pretty 'funny' and said she felt 'fine' by the end of the day's filming.

Meanwhile, Mimi's co-star Gillian Anderson has admitted that she's attempted to save her own blushes by banning her kids from watching the show.

The 53-year-old, who stars as sex therapist Dr Jean Milburn, told The Radio Times Podcast that when the show first came out, she told her children Piper, 26, Oscar, 14, and Felix, 12, that they weren't allowed to watch it.

But she admitted that they may have since had a sneak peek.

She said: "I have to say I am living happily in the denial that my children do not watch the show."

To which podcast host Jane Garvey asked: "So you don't know whether they've watched it or not, or you hope they haven't?"

Anderson replied: "I hope they haven't.

"When it first came out, I told them they weren't allowed to.

"I have no control over what they do at their friends' houses. I have no control over what their friends show them!"

All three seasons of Sex Education are now streaming on Netflix.
