Their awkward sitcom alter-egos were not destined for fourth base, let alone wedded bliss.

But now Joe Thomas and Hannah Tointon from The Inbetweeners are engaged, according to social media.

It’s been nearly seven years since 33-year-old Joe, who played unlucky-in-love ringleader Simon, started dating 29-year-old Hannah, who played Simon’s slightly crazy girlfriend of about a week or so, Tara.

The pair have been living together in London since 2012 and now it seems they are planning to tie the knot. Will Jay, Neil and Will be joint Best Men? We hope so.

Metro.co.uk has contacted the actors’ reps for confirmation of their engagement but so far, neither Joe nor Hannah have referenced their rumoured impending nuptials on social media.

Hannah, who is The Halcyon actress Kara Tointon’s younger sister, first appeared in the third series of The Inbetweeners, and is now better known for her roles in Mr Selfridge, Penny Dreadful and Hollyoaks.

Previously Joe, who’s also starred in Fresh Meat, told Cosmopolitan of the relationship: ‘I always try to impress my girlfriend Hannah by any means I can and I’m very protective about her.

‘I think I am romantic. I’ve tended to have some serious, long-time monogamous relationships.’
