This Saturday, May 5, David Haye and Tony Bellew will be back in the ring for their highly-anticipated second fight.
Last year, in what was a somewhat thrilling contest between the two, Bellew was able to knock Haye out in the 11th round.
However, somebody else is looking to get involved in the action, and it’s none other than Jay from The Inbetweeners.
Storming today’s press conference, May 3, James Buckley, who played Jay in the hit programme, walked straight up to Adam Moralee before handing him a briefcase and a pair of glasses.

Hilarious. Although you’re probably asking yourself, why the hell did Jay from The Inbetweeners just storm the Haye Bellew 2 press conference and hand Adam Moralee a briefcase?
Well it’s simple really.
Earlier this week, Team Haye’s Adam Maralee made one of the most cringeworthy speeches in boxing history, prompting a response from Liverpool’s Tony Bellew calling him Will from The Inbetweeners.

Reminds me of Ed Miliband in a weird way.
Personally, I quite like Bellew’s ‘briefcase w*nker’ comment. Not a bad little jibe by someone completely thrown off guard.
Moving away from the boxing, for fans of The Inbetweeners, we have good news. The creator of the show is interested in creating a new series.
Believe it or not but yesterday marked ten years since The Inbetweeners first premiered and exposed the embarrassing lives all sixth-formers lead behind closed doors.
Inbetweeners‘ co-creator, Damon Beesley, told UNILAD:
Yes, let’s be clear no one’s adolescence is like the kids in Skins, I remember watching it and not realising they were supposed to be 16, you know? I loved it, but I always thought they were 23 or something, you know?
They were taking part in orgies, and you know [laughs] it was just incredible! And we always knew really that Skins was the glossy fantasy of what it’s like to be 16 and we [The Inbetweeners] were the grubby reality of what it really is.
Grubby reality or not, the series was wildly popular for Channel 4 with its third season premiere attracting a record-breaking overnight average audience of 2.6m viewers.
So the question, of course, has always been will The Inbetweeners ever return? Well, the cast has always been up for it with Joe Thomas telling the Mirror last year he’d ‘jump at any chance to work with those guys again’.
We asked Damon what he thinks the four are up to now and whether he and Iain have ever considered revisiting their most famous comic creations.
He told UNILAD:
I think people would be interested to see the characters now, to see where they were and what they’re doing. But I think that, you know, we intentionally chose that age-group because as you get older you can say think and do some of the things they do without it becoming distasteful.
I think that because they’re established characters we could definitely revisit them and I think an audience would find it interesting. You’d have to find a different angle on it though, I don’t think they can carry on believing some of the things they believe [chuckles] for a start because it could become slightly odd and misogynistic.
But would we want to do it? And I guess the answer to that is, I think we all had so much fun making it and miss working with each other that I’m sure at some point we’re going to find a way to do something.
I’m not sure what that would be, and we’ve got nothing in the pipeline, but it’s mainly inspired by the fact we all miss making it [The Inbetweeners] and miss hanging out together so never say never.
If you fancy reliving the embarrassing lives of Will and the gang All 4 have got you covered.
To celebrate The Inbetweeners 10th anniversary they’re releasing both The Inbetweeners Movie and The Inbetweeners 2 alongside existing box sets of all three series.
