Sex Education season two recently landed on Netflix, and has received tons of praise from fans who are currently gutted that they binge-watched the new episodes so quickly.
But one bit of information that has sent fans into overdrive is the fact that co-stars Aimee Lou Wood, 24, and Connor Swindells, 23, who play lovebirds Aimee Gibbs and Adam Groff in season one are dating in real life.
The pair became Instagram official back in September 2018, but fans are only just making the connection that the pair are dating and it’s sent them into a wild frenzy.

With Sex Education just rounding off its randy second season on Netflix, fans are once again confused about whether it’s supposed to be a show aimed at Brits or Americans. Given an entirely British cast and setting in the heartland of England’s green countryside, you’d expect it to be all tea and crumpets.
However, There’s a definite John Hughes vibe and you’d sometime be forgiven for thinking you’ve stepped into The Breakfast Club or Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.
From the way the cast dress to the pastel colours of the clothes, some have questioned what era Sex Education is even set in. The bopping ’80s soundtrack of “We Don’t Have to Take Our Clothes Off”, “Two Tribes”, and “Push It” also don’t help the confusion.
Previously, Gillian Anderson (who plays Jean Milburn) explained how
creator Laurie Nunn wanted to bring a bit of Americana to the British show and ‘hoped’ the American audience wouldn’t notice.
Anderson told RadioTimes: “There is a bit of both worlds, decidedly, in the series, and the aim and the hope is that Americans won’t notice.
For instance, the Brits may notice that they are throwing American footballs, whereas the Americans won’t notice that that might be strange for people speaking with British accents.
“The rules are shifting all the time in terms of how an audience receives the shows that they’re watching, what they’re willing to accept and what realms and worlds they’re willing to step into to suspend their disbelief.
“I think Netflix feels quite strongly that they’ve hit on something with this amalgamation.”
It was a complaint that briefly popped up during Season 1, but with Sex Education back, more keyboard warriors have taken to social media to have a good moan.
