Emma Mackey, who is often described as Margot's doppelgänger, will make an appearance in the flick alongside, not one but, two Sex Education co-stars – it's a reunion!

Fans have often questioned if Emma is related to Margot, which has led some to theorise that she could be portraying Skipper... only time will tell.

Ncuti Gatwa, who was recently revealed as the next Doctor Who, is rumoured to be portraying another Ken character.

Sex Education's Connor Swindells and Bridgerton's Nicola Coughlan will also feature.
