Doctor Who star makes Friday Night Dinner debut as Adam and Jonny bring girlfriends home in cringeworthy scenes – The Sun

DOCTOR Who star Pearl Mackie will make her Friday Night Dinner debut as Jonny’s girlfriend Lucy, in the series six finale.

In the final episode Adam, played by The Inbetweeners Simon Bird, and Jonny, Plebs star Tom Rosenthal, arrive for dinner with their girlfriends, who are both called Lucy.

In the opening scenes of Friday Night Dinner, the Goodman brothers are a bit worried about introducing their new love interests to their parents.

Adam and Jonny feel the need to go into the house to set some ground rules, but their girlfriends see right through their plan.

It’ll be a cringe-fest race to dessert for viewers to see if their mum and dad, Jackie, played by Tamsin Greig, or Martin, played by Paul Ritter, embarrass them or not. But we're guessing they probably will – what are parents for?

Fans of the show would have spotted a glimpse of Pearl and Rebecca Humphries, who plays Adam's partner, in the show in the season six premiere.

In an effort to cheer their mum up, Adam and Jonny had reluctantly admitted that they both had girlfriends and showed a photo of them.

Pearl played Doctor Who companion Bill Potts, the Whoniverse's first ever openly gay character.

The 32-year-old was a hit with fans but the character didn’t continue when former Doctor Peter Capaldi left.

Friday Night Dinner airs the season six finale on Friday, May 1 at 10pm on Channel 4.
