Joe Thomas and Hannah Tointon share one of the most awkward scenes in series three of The Inbetweeners - and that is saying a lot.
But while, Joe's alter-ego, Simon, struggles to hold onto the object of his affections in the comedy. The Cambridge-educated actor has had more luck in love off screen.
Joe and Hannah, the younger sister of ex-Eastenders star Kara Tointon, live together — somewhat primitively — in the City. But are hunting for a new, more contemporary home.
Moving on: After a somewhat unsuccessful romance in The Inbetweeners, Joe Thomas and Hannah Tointon are dating off screen
Happy couple: Joe and Hannah, pictured separately at recent events, live together - somewhat primitively - in the City
'We live in an old-fashioned 1960s building in the Barbican and it is like stepping into a time warp,' says Joe.
'We have no dishwasher and no hot water. The washing-up consumes so much of our spare time that Hannah has suggested we eat off paper plates.
'But I have drawn the line at living in a permanent children's party.'
Unlucky in love: The romance between The Inbetweeners characters Tara and Simon did not quite go to plan
Romantic getaway: Simon bought his friends along on a road trip to visit Tara's sister
But while her sister Kara is happily sharing a duvet with her former Strictly Come Dancing partner Artem Chigvintsev, Hannah, 24, who is to play club hostess Kiki in the second series of BBC newsroom drama The Hour, will move in with Joe only to a house with basic comforts.
'I quite like the romance of having to boil the kettle every time we have to wash up or have a bath, but Hannah doesn't,' Fresh Meat star Joe, 28, said at the Evening Standard British Film Awards.
'Our list of house needs is long.'
