"When we were making it, we had no idea how much people were going to like it," Mirallegro - who plays Finn - told Heat magazine.

The 22-year-old actor added that new Mad Fat Diary episodes will begin filming "in a couple of months".

"The whole gang is back," he confirmed. "We're really looking forward to it."

Mirallegro also joked that he is a "sucker" for removing his clothes on-screen, saying: "I whipped my top off willy-nilly in... Mad Fat Diary.

"It's pretty weird, but [I didn't know it would be happening so much because] you only ever read the first episode when you audition for something. I wouldn't want to do a show where I just lounge about with my top off all the time, though."
