Kedar Williams-Stirling, who plays Jackson, previously hinted at the uniforms, telling Radio Times: "There’s a whole storyline that happens where just the aesthetic of the whole thing changes.

Asa Butterfield, who plays the show’s lead character Otis, teased the reveal earlier in the day, tweeting: “Buckle up buckaroos. Today is the day.” He previously opened up about what to expect from his character, saying: “Otis is back at school but he’s got different things on his plate. He’s grown up a bit and become slightly more sassy. It’s been fun to portray his newfound charisma. Don’t worry, though, he’s still tragically awkward too.”

Are you looking forward to season three?

Season three is likely to pick up where season two left off, with Otis declaring his love to Maeve on her voicemail, which was then promptly deleted by her neighbour who has a crush on her. Meanwhile, Eric and Adam finally go public after holding hands in front of the school, Otis’ mother, Jean, finds out she is pregnant, and Orla and Lily begin a relationship. We can’t wait to find out what season three has in store!
