James Buckley will NEVER let his kids watch The Inbetweeners for funny reason

James Buckley has revealed he will NEVER let his kids watch The Inbetweeners – and for a very good reason.

The comedy actor, who played foul-mouthed Jay Cartwright in the hit E4 comedy, doesn’t want them to see the hilarious on-screen antics that shot him to fame.

James told Good Morning Britain’s Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that there will never come an age where he wants sons Harrison and Jude to watch the show.

The 31-year-old got semi-naked, threw up multiple times and masturbated during the show’s three series and two films.

He also doesn’t believe that The Inbetweeners could air today because too many people would be offended.

Speaking about his kids, James said: “I would never let them watch The Inbetweeners.

“It’s different for me as I’m supposed to be their dad. I don’t want them to see me behaving in that way. I already have very little respect from them to begin with and I don’t want to lose it completely.”

GMB presenter Piers assured the actor that the internet is a “small world” and they would almost certainly see clips online.

James is currently starring in the third series of cult fantasy comedy show Zapped on Dave.

The Inbetweeners cast are reuniting for a one-off special at Christmas, but James doesn’t think new episodes could ever air.

Piers admitted it would be hard to show 20 seconds of an episode without someone being offended by something.

On whether it could air today, he said: “I don’t think so I think it would be really difficult. It’s a bit of a shame to say that. I think it seems to be cool and trendy to be offended by things.

“It’s a shame. It’s sort of killing comedy. You can’t joke about anything. Nobody means it, it’s just a flippant comment or a joke.”

*Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am
