Derry Girls star Dylan Llewellyn has revealed that he’s backing a romance between James and Erin when the comedy comes back for series three.
The sitcom is set in Northern Ireland during the 1990s, following four teenage girls attending a Catholic secondary school towards the end of the Troubles.
Llewellyn plays James, the English cousin of Derry girl Michelle, who takes her close friend Erin to the prom in a particularly popular episode of series two.
Fans have been wishing for an all-out romance ever since, and Llewellyn told RadioTimes.com on the National Television Awards red carpet that he’s in favour.
“I don’t know, we’ll see. I would like it. I would like it for my character, but we’ll see,” he said.
Saoirse-Monica Jackson, who plays Erin, had previously told RadioTimes.com that “there’s definitely a spark” between the two characters.
Nicola Coughlan, who stars as Clare in Derry Girls, posted to Twitter after the loss: “Congratulations to Mrs Brown’s Boys for their NTA win, the trophy went to Ireland lads yeo.”
The third series of Derry Girls is expected to premiere in 2020.
