Skins is, objectively, the best telly show to have ever been on the telly (aside from the pure drivel that as Gen 3, sorry, not sorry). And, if we’re honest, we still like to think the original gang are still age 17 and running around Bristol causing mischief.

But we can confirm they are almost definitely not. In fact, they’ve all grown up and gone on to star in various Hollywood films and what not.

Now, Nicholas Hoult aka Tony Stonem aka our one true love as welcomed his first child into the world.
