Will, Simon, Neil and Jay are officially animal killers after a poor kangaroo became the victim of a hit-and-run while filming The Inbetweeners 2.

The cast shared the truth about their experience while shooting the sequel in Australia.

“Yeah that did happen,” said James Buckley, addressing the rumours. “It was an accident. There was a mate of mine that turned up in the outback to come and have a drink with me.

“He travelled all the way from England for a pint, and on his journey in, he did hit a kangaroo.”

Simon Bird, who plays the nerdy Will, then added dismissively: “But they’re rodents, aren’t they?”

When asked to sum up the film in just one word, the group replied with “rude”, “flies”, “penises” and “vomit” - not predictable at all.

Buckley also revealed that “a lot of nakedness” went on during filming, which will not come as a surprise to fans of the hit TV series.


It was confirmed earlier this week that there will not be a third movie in the franchise, but The Inbetweeners 2 has already smashed UK box office records, bringing in the most money on its first day of any comedy film.

The storyline follows the hapless four-some as they visit Jay on his gap year adventures down under.
