An insider of the event told The daily starReuniting the cast for the event is a huge deal.

“We know that many people have often called on them to get back together and get together for a big public event, so we’re happy to be able to do that. Fans won’t want to miss it.’

The group had previously reunited for The Inbetweeners Fwends Reunited 10-year anniversary show, which aired on New Year’s Day 2019.

Emily Atack, who played Charlotte Hinchcliffe on the show, spoke just before the broadcast and revealed that she had been cut from the series’ reunion show a day before filming was due to begin.

Greg Davies, who played Mr Gilbert as head teacher, still joined the boys, along with Emmerdale star Emily Head, who played Carli D’Amato.

A few months after it aired, Emily hinted that James Buckley was the reason she was dropped from the reunion, and reportedly said there was a lot of “snobbery” around it.

According to The sun, Emily revealed the information during Richard Herring’s Leicester Square Theater Podcast.

A source told the publication: ‘Richard asked about Joe Thomas and said he couldn’t be because he’s a nice man.

‘Then he bought up James Buckley, and Emily hesitated, then yelled ‘James F***ley!’ which made the audience laugh out loud.

“Emily then said there was ‘a lot of snobbery’ and then said she didn’t want to say anything else.”

The reunion was slammed at the time by devoted fans who labeled the program “toe curling, painful, uncomfortable and horrifying.”

Others were agitated about the concept thinking the comedy would be a new episode rather than a chat show.

The foursome, who played Will McKenzie, Simon Cooper, Neil Sutherland and Jay Cartwright respectively, teamed up to chat with host Jimmy Carr before taking a ride in the now iconic yellow Fiat Cinquecento Hawaii car.

There was a lot of fanfare about the reunion, but it seems that the problems for fans have been caused by confusion about the premise of the program.

Critics also slammed the show, with a review in The Telegraph branding of the show: ‘A chaotic mess that didn’t do the show justice’.

Aside from being upset about the episode, fans were excited to hear a host of inside details, including the fact that Doctor Who star Matt Smith had tried and failed for James’ character Jay’s job.

Additionally, it was revealed that James had been reading to Blake’s character in the original pilot, but after hearing his behavior off-screen, creators Damon Beesley and Iain Morris realized he was a better fit for Jay.

James Buckley revealed his thoughts on the show a few weeks after it aired on his Completed It, Mate podcast.

He admitted how he felt like a ‘f**king idiot’ during the match and couldn’t bring himself to watch it again.

James reflected on the chat show format of the one-off, which was hosted by Jimmy Carr.

The 31-year-old said: “It became one thing that wasn’t a celebration of the good I’ve done in my life, it was getting me out of my head for hours on end.

“I didn’t have the personality or the intelligence to deal with it, especially when you’re up against someone like Jimmy Carr, who is super fast and super funny. So I come across as a complete idiot through the whole thing.

‘I got caught acting like Jay because there was an audience of Inbetweeners fans and I got caught in this place between Jay and myself where I went, ‘You act like a fucking idiot, you’ if you you’re an idiot, you’re ad**k”.

“And there was this part where it was like, ‘Well, they’re all here and they want you to be Jay, so do it.”

“When the audience was there, I didn’t want to look like a stick in the mud.”
