It's been over a year since we last caught up with the Moordale gang, but Sex Education series three is finally upon us.

The Netflix show, which first aired in 2019, follows a group of teenagers as they navigate love and life at the fictional Moordale High School.

The official synopsis for the series reads: "It’s a new year, Otis is having casual sex, Eric and Adam are official, and Jean has a baby on the way.

"Meanwhile, new headteacher Hope (played by Jemima Kirke) tries to return Moordale to a pillar of excellence, Aimee discovers feminism, Jackson gets a crush and a lost voicemail still looms. Prepare for commitment animals, alien phenomena, vulva cupcakes and much more of Madam Groff."

One of the main characters returning for season three is Ruby, who is played by Mimi Keene.
