We revealed last month that Channel 4’s uproarious teen sitcom Inbetweeners would be returning for a special one-off tenth anniversary special.
Now, it has emerged, not only are Will, Simon, Jay and Neil returning – older if not necessarily wiser – but Simon’s battered yellow Fiat Cinquecento will also be making a return.
Clearly whatever Simon (Joe Thomas) has been doing in the past decade it hasn’t been well-paid enough to finance the purchase of some new wheels for the gang.
The iconic banger was revealed in a Twitter post from Blake Harrison (slow-witted Inbetweener Neil) as well as an Instagram post from James Buckley (inveterate fantasist Jay) with the caption ‘Hello old friend.’
As well as die-hard Inbetweeners fans the show – set to be broadcast later this month – will attract some new viewers because of Emily Atack’s involvement.

- The Inbetweeners cast to reunite in one-off special to celebrate tenth anniversary
Emily, who was a finalist in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here this week, appears in The Inbetweeners as Charlotte Hinchcliffe.
Charlotte’s a sexually very liberated girl who attracts and intimidates the four boys (especially Will) in equal measure.
The special will be the first time all four actors have appeared on TV together since the series’ 2010 finale.
The show ran for three series, with two spinoff movies

The one-off show will air later this month and will see the stars speak about playing sixth formers Will, Simon, Jay and Neil.
It will also feature the idea behind the show, unseen footage and embarrassing behind-the-scenes stories from the cast members themselves.

Simon, who plays nerdy Will, teased fans with what looked like a full reunions how back in May but was later obliged to dash fans’ hopes, saying there would "definitely" not be anymore of the classic show or its films.
He told Lorraine Kelly: "We’re all so happy and proud of what we did with it. We don’t want to spoil it.
