This will make you feel old: Neil from The Inbetweeners is no longer reminiscing about how much Lego he used to be able to shove up his bum – these days, he’s leading England to victory at Soccer Aid, after scoring the winning goal in a tense penalty shoot-out.
Blake Harrison, the actor who brought Neil into our lives, was one of the celebrity players in the England team who won 4-3 on penalties against the World XI at Old Trafford on Sunday night, following a 3-3 draw.
The England side, captained by Olly Murs, went up against an international team lead by Usain Bolt. The match saw Manchester United legend Eric Cantona make a historic return to the stadium, playing with the likes of Mo Farah, Gordon Ramsay, Paddy McGuinness, Damian Lewis and Mark Wright.
Inbetweeners fans were delighted by Harrison’s triumph, noting that he’s come a long way since his boating debacle in series two of the show…
Harrison was last seen as the hapless hitman in BBC1’s acclaimed drama A Very English Scandal, and will next be on screens in the film Madness in the Method and medical TV drama Gods of Medicine alongside Doctor Who’s Pearl Mackie.
Soccer Aid for Unicef 2018 has raised a record-breaking £5,540,259 so far.
