Paul Mescal And Daisy Edgar-Jones Just Reunited For A 'Normal People' And 'Fleabag' Crossover

Paul Mescal And Daisy Edgar-Jones Just Reunited For A 'Normal People' And 'Fleabag' Crossover

This weekend, Normal People fans were treated to not one but two Comic Relief specials - and they were seriously epic.

The first was a Normal People meets Fleabag crossover, with the show's Hot Priest making a guest appearance as Connell and Marianne sat down for a confession.

You can watch a snippet of the special below:

In the hilarious sketch - which featured Paul Mescal, Daisy Edgar-Jones and Fleabag's Andrew Scott - Connell sits down in the confession booth to talk about his feelings for Marianne.

In classic Connell fashion, he's struggling to get his feelings across. But what he doesn't know is seconds later, Marianne sits down on the other side of the confession booth, where she admits she has stolen something from the person she loves.

And - this is the best bit - all of a sudden, she pulls out the stolen goods and it's none other than Connell's Chain, which she hands to the Hot Priest.

Connell spots his unmistakeable piece of jewellery straight away, exclaiming "that's mine" before the pair realise they're both confessing their sins at the same time.

It's truly epic and you can watch the full clip here.


But that wasn't all, because fans were treated to another sketch and honestly, we think this one is our favourite.

Normal Older People focuses on Connell and Marianne 40 years in the future and we couldn't stop laughing.

Anyone who has watched the BBC show will know just how many misunderstandings the teenagers have, whether it's Connell unable to get articulate his feelings, or Marianne's stubbornness.

And the Normal Older People sketch is truly spot on.

In the special, Connell - who is played by Peter McDonald - can be seen standing in the kitchen with two plates of beans on toast.

Marianne arrives (played by Deirdre O'Kane) and the pair begin a deep AF conversation, simply about the fact Connell had made the late night snack and his assumptions that Marianne would want some, too.

It's so Marianne and Connell. And again, the best bit is that even 40 years on, Connell is still wearing his chain.

It's everything we could have hoped for and more - you can watch it in full here.
