Will’s mum from The Inbetweeners sends warning to person who sent her 'very rude' DM

Will’s mum from The Inbetweeners sends warning to person who sent her 'very rude' DM

Even though it has been 15 years since The Inbetweeners first debuted, some fans still hold a candle for actor Belinda Stewart-Wilson

Will McKenzie's mum from The Inbetweeners managed to make teenage boys and fully grown blokes swoon with her sex appeal.

She was dubbed 'TV's fittest mum' as her character Polly left such a lasting impression on viewers of the beloved sitcom.

With hilarious one-liners and a flirtatious manner, actor Belinda Stewart-Wilson became a star in her own right.

Even though it has been 15 years since The Inbetweeners first graced our TV screens, some fans of the show still hold a candle for her.

But Belinda isn't that appreciative of how some people go about trying to get her attention - especially in the form of unsolicited d**k pics.

The IT Crowd star had a few choice words for one bloke who slid into her DMs with a message accompanied by a 'horrifying' image.

During an appearance on the Secret Artists with Annie McGrath podcast, she explained that although she appreciates the undying adoration, she isn't a fan of some 'very rude' approaches people take to getting her attention.

Belinda said 'of course' it was nice to be branded TV's fittest parent, but warding off weirdos sadly comes with the territory.

When asked how she navigates people still sliding in her DMs, the 52-year-old said: "Well, it's funny you should say that, actually. Because not long ago I had an absolutely horrifying one and I'd never had anything like that before.

"I was, well it took me back, lets say that, and it wasn't pleasant. So whoever you are out there, you know who you are - slap on the wrist, don't do that again - it's very rude."

Belinda assured the host that she didn't reply to the unprompted d**k pic and said she had been traumatised by viewing it.

"It's the pics," she continued. "It was the pic that took me back. Oh my god, it was graphic. And it said exactly what they wanted to do... but we will leave that there."

However, she did say that she also gets 'lots of lovely ones' that are 'always very charming' from other Inbetweeners fans.

The Holby City star also revealed that she nearly missed out on getting the part of Polly because she 'looked too young'.

She said she was 'gutted' when she got the call saying they had gone with someone else because she thought the 'scripts were dynamite'.

Belinda continued: "They cast the pilot, they made it, they watched it and went hm, we need to jiggle things around.

"They changed the boys around, recast a boy or two and ended up with the line-up that is now very well known.

"They wanted to recast the mum because it wasn't quite right, they called people back, they saw new people, they called me back I did another whole audition.

"I auditioned for it again and they said I still looked too young but you are just the right person for the job. And so I got the gig! But not without a lot of blood sweat and tears.

"Looking back, joining the dots now, it was my break. Wow, lucky me and what fun. Love it."
