- The poo featured in the third season of “Sex Education” is Chocolate Mousse and Weetabix.
- Asa Butterfield, who plays Otis, said he tried some of it and it was “good”.
- The real star of the scene is Jim Howick, who plays Mr. Hendrix, said Mimi Keene (who plays Ruby).
The flying poo featured in the final season of “Sex Education” is actually just chocolate and wheat breakfast cereals, stars Asa Butterfield (Otis) and Mimi Keene (Ruby) have revealed.
The third installment of the popular Netflix show, which premiered Friday, brings viewers back to Moordale High. Except now Otis and Maeve (Emma Mackey) no longer run their sex therapy clinic for their fellow students, and the school has a new principal who is very determined to overcome the scandals the school faced the previous season.
A particularly memorable moment of this season occurs in the fifth episode. The students are on an excursion with their teachers when Rahim (played by Sami Outalbali) accidentally clogs the toilet on the bus. To avoid embarrassment, he stuffs his poo into a sock and throws it out the window. Unfortunately for a family on a separate trip, the poop-filled sock ends up on their windshields.
While chatting with Insider ahead of the season’s release, Butterfield and Keene revealed that the poop featured was actually less disgusting than it looked on screen.
“I think it was chocolate mousse with Weetabix paste to give it a little bit of fiber,” Butterfield said.
He added that he had tried the mix himself and tasted “good”, although no one else in the cast was as daring as him.
While the flying poo is hard to miss, Keene thinks the real star of the scene is the “very, very funny” Jim Howick, who plays Professor Colin Hendricks.
The generally happy Mr. Hendricks has the impossible task of finding out who was responsible for the big sock and he is growing more and more hysterical because no one wants to take responsibility for it.
“It wasn’t just the flying poo that was funny,” Keene said.
She added, “We kind of needed to get it. And director Ben Taylor said, ‘Guys, we have to get it before it gets dark. You’re going to have to stop laughing. “”
The eight episodes of season 3 of “Sex Education” are currently airing on
