Red carpet for Inbetweeners stars

Blake Harrison, James Buckley, Joe Thomas and Simon Bird arrive for the world premiere of The Inbetweeners Movie

TV-turned-movie stars Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, Blake Harrison and James Buckley made it up the red carpet for the premiere of The Inbetweeners Movie - without a wardrobe malfunction in sight.

Hundreds of fans waited for hours in London's Leicester Square to catch a glimpse of their favourite cast members from the E4 sitcom, who are finally getting the big-screen treatment.

A suited and booted Joe, whose character Simon often gets caught out without clothes, joked: "I'm not taking any chances today. I've got an industrial strength zip to begin with anyway. I thought I would wear some clothes for a change. Why not?

"But as a half-time entertainment, I'll do a strip show. That'll be fun," he added.

The quartet were amazed by the sheer numbers of the crowds at the premiere, which included celebrity fans Jesse Metcalfe, Jimmy Carr and Gethin Jones.

"It feels surreal. We didn't expect anyone to be here," said Simon.

Fans can be reassured that the film, which follows the antics of school leavers Simon, Will (Bird), Jay (Buckley) and Neil (Harrison) on their first guys' holiday in Malia, will see the lads behaving badly as always.

"To be honest, there's a bit of nakedness from all of us," teased Simon.

The Inbetweeners Movie, directed by Ben Palmer and written by the series creators Damon Beesley and Iain Morris, opens in cinemas on Wednesday August 17.
