Simon Bird has insisted that the nation’s beloved The Inbetweeners will ‘never’ be returning for a reunion show.

Appearing on Lorraine to discuss the new series Days of the Bagnold Summer, which he’s directing, the two got to talking on the recent trend of rebooting shows.

Responding to how often he gets questioned about The Inbetweeners, he said: ‘About 10 to 20 [times a day].’

The presenter, 60, went on to joke about how he looks the same as he did on the series, which aired between 2008 and 2010.

‘The thing about that is “never say never”,’ Lorraine quipped before Simon quickly retorted:’ Exactly. I mean I will say never.’

He continued: ‘I think that the reason that shows worked is that the characters were kids so we could say the terrible awful things they said. Whereas if the characters were in their mid-to-late thirties, it’s slightly different.’

Well, there goes our dreams flying out the window.

On the bright side, Friday Night Dinner will be coming back sometime in March so not all hope is lost.

The star, however, still doesn’t know what the exact date is so we’re going to have to keep our eyes glued to the screen for the entirety of the month.

Channel 4 dropped the trailer for season six of FND and we are longing to hear the words, ‘Shalom Jackie’ as soon as possible.

The 20-second clip is short and sweet but it is still long enough for us to see all our favourite characters in action.

The opening of the trailer sees Martin (Paul Ritter) in a caravan (so it looks like he has upgraded his shed).

And let’s not forget Jackie (Tamsin Greig), Adam (Simon), and Jonny (Tom Rosenthal) all making brief appearances, as well as Jim (Mark Heath).

Since the show started back in 2011, it’s cultivated a loyal following, making Friday Night Dinner one of Channel 4’s longest-running sitcoms.

Series five gained the show’s highest ratings in some time, beaten only by series one. It also attracted the biggest audience share across all series.

Lorraine airs weekdays at 9am on ITV.
