Here’s a first look at Jack Whitehall as a teacher in new BBC Three comedy Bad Education, which he co-wrote with Freddie Syborn.
Jack Whitehall stars as Alfie; the worst teacher ever to grace the British education system and is a bigger kid than the kids he teaches. The teacher your kids would love but parents would hate!
The picture also shows his pupils played by Charlie Wernham, Layton Williams, Ethan Lawrence, Nikki Runeckles, Kae Alexander, and Jack Binstead.
The show also stars Mathew Horne as Fraser, the school’s headmaster, who tragically longs to be as cool as Alfie. He’s the teacher who just wants to be everyone’s ‘best mate’ and is prone to massive and very public mishaps.
Sarah Solemaniplays Miss Gulliver. She is the school biology teacher and the apple of Alfie’s eye. She cares deeply about the school and the students.
Michelle Gomezplays Pickwell, the deputy head. She is an ‘old school’ teacher and can’t stand the other younger teachers. She’s a disciplinarian who wants Creationism put back on the syllabus and would prefer a school without children at all!
Bad Education is produced by Tiger Aspect, and will be coming to BBC Three in late August.
