The comedy series follows the sex-obsessed teens of Moordale High School, who seek advice from the unofficial lunchtime sex therapy clinic run by students Otis Milburn (Asa Butterfield) and Maeve Wiley (Emma Mackey).

The second series saw Otis’ best friend Eric get caught in a love triangle between the new French student Rahim (Sami Outalbali) and the headmaster’s bully son Adam Groff (Connor Swindells).

Sky and HBO commission new comic horror series The Baby

Co-created by debut screenwriter Siân Robins-Grace (Sex Education) and Lucy Gaymer (Production Manager for Gangs of London), The Baby is a darkly funny delve into the depths of motherhood.

When a baby is thrust upon unsuspecting 38-year-old Natasha, she is forced to give up her comfortable life of freedom and indulgence to be at their beck and call.

Far from your average case of parental compromise, the baby possesses such manipulative and violent powers that Natasha’s life spirals out of control.

She even had a blink-and-you-miss-it role in Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Few series by the streamers have made as much noise as Netflix’s Sex Education, which brings the genre of the US high-school teen drama to the UK – and adds plenty of gauche sex.

The global giant released the second season of the comedy-drama in January. A few days earlier, the first episode was premiered at a joint RTS Cymru Wales/Bafta Cymru event in Cardiff.
