If you haven’t watched Sex Education on Netflix yet, you honestly have not lived.

Starring Asa Butterfield, Emma Backey, and the iconic Gillian Anderson, Sex Education follows the under experienced Otis as he takes it upon himself to provide his fellow schoolmates with a load of information about sex.

The show tackles everything from LGBT issues to consent to not knowing what the hell you’re supposed to do with yourself at any age.

It is just BRILLIANT!

And guess what we just discovered about the show? Two of the actors are dating in real life.

Ugh, we bloody love when that happens.

Aimee Lou Wood (who plays Aimee Gibbs) and Connor Swindells (who plays Adam) are a couple.

The adorable pair made their relationship public this evening at the BRIT Awards.

Posting a cute snap on Instagram, Aimee confirmed that she’s dating her co-star (who her character briefly dated during the show).

Ncuti Gatwa, who plays Eric, even commented on the snap, saying “Stop being cute and hurry up and come sit down.”

Having done a bit of stalking on Aimee’s instagram, herself and Connor seem to have been pretty cosy since last year.

We’re not sure how long they’ve been officially an item, but we SO ship them.
