Another added: "Omg this is the best thing I have seen all week".

And a third said what we're all thinking: "I can’t wrap my head around them ageing".

She also followed it up with another picture of the trio with show creators Guy Jenkin and Andy Hamilton, captioning it: "The whole cru".

Speaking about a potential Outnumbered reunion on Pointless Celebrities, Tyger, who played Jake, said: “I think the most regular basis we’ll get with it will be not as regular as a series, an episode every week.

“But Andy Hamilton has mentioned a few times that he’d love to, every couple of years, or every year, do some sort of Outnumbered special because we hope that everyone would still be interested in finding out how we’re all getting on.”
