The film version of TV hit The Inbetweeners has raked in more than £13 million in a matter of days - making it the biggest ever opening weekend for a UK comedy.

The spin-off from the E4 show has now overtaken Bridget Jones: Edge Of Reason, which was the previous biggest opener with £10.4 million.

The Inbetweeners movie sees show regulars Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, James Buckley and Blake Harrison heading off on their first "lads' holiday" with a wild trip to Malia in Crete.

It took £13.2 million since its opening, including previews.

Producer Chris Young said: "We are thrilled that The Inbetweeners Movie is the biggest opening of all time for a UK comedy."

The third biggest all-time UK comedy was Wallace & Gromit: Curse Of The Were-Rabbit with £9.4 million.

Fortunately, you have a group of loved ones who know the real you. Arrange to meet with your favourite people for a festive dinner.More
