Vod, played by Zawe Ashton, is a fan favorite.

She is more interested in drinking and drugs than in actual work, and always appears carefree, until it gradually becomes clear that she has really worked hard to get her taste. unity and fear of failure.

Since Fresh Meat, Zawe’s career has flourished.

She stars in The Handmaid’s Tale, is the title character in Netflix’s thriller Velvet Buzzsaw, and will play a villain in the comic book movie The Marvels next year.

Zawe has been dating Hollywood actor Tom Hiddleston since 2019, after they appeared on the London stage show Betrayal as a married couple.

Literary student Melissa tried to hide the fact that she had a special background when she started studying, so she gave herself the nickname Oregon.

She is romantically involved with Professor Shales, the sleazy lecturer, but is a huge fan of his wife Jean and also begins dating their son Dylan.

The political activist becomes president of the Student Union but ends up being stalked by Shales after dumping him.

Charlotte Ritchie was relatively unknown when she appeared on Fresh Meat, but in 2015 she joined the cast of Call The Midwife as nurse Barbara Gilbert.

Fans were left very disappointed in 2018 when her character was dramatically killed off when she passed away from sepsis caused by meningitis.

Since then, Charlotte has starred in the BBC comedy series Ghosts, and also appeared in the Netflix series Feel Good alongside Mae Martin.

Charlotte and Mae have also been rumored to be on-screen partners, but neither has confirmed or denied it.

Josie seems to be a very shy Welsh girl, but is actually very talkative and short-tempered.

She was kicked out of her dental course after getting drunk and drilling through a patient’s cheek, then turned to zoology before becoming a pharmacy student.

Her close relationship with Kingsley, as well as her relationship with JP, are two of the main Fresh Meat storylines.

Before Fresh Meat, Kimberley Nixon was in the films Wild Child and Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging.

Since the show, she has appeared in Ordinary Lies, Death in Heaven and the ITV series The Salisbury Poisonings.

Howard is an oddball Scottish geology student who is loved by Fresh Meat fans.

Played by Greg McHugh, he’s not social and struggles to make friends, but is the only member of the team to leave his job.

After Fresh Meat, Greg teamed up with Jack Whitehall again when he played homeless man Bonehead in the Christmas special Bad Education.

He has since played Eddie Scott in The A Word and, more recently, starred in the BBC series Guilt.

Joe Thomas – Kingsley

Joe Thomas is already a household name, having played Simon in Inbetwearies.

Many argue that Kingsley is an old version of Simon due to both characters having chosen hairstyles and recklessly pursuing a girl without much luck.

In real life, Joe appeared in both Inbetwearies while filming Fresh Meat – and worked with actor Simon Bird again on the comedy Chi Chicken in the Sky.

He’s also appeared alongside Inbetwearies co-star James Buckley in White Gold, so it’s really not that different from Simon.

Apparently a huge fan of his Inbetwehers co-stars, he had a relationship with Hannah Tointon, who has played Tara, Simon’s one-time girlfriend, since they met on the show.

They got engaged in 2017 and currently live together in London.

Gemma Chan only starred in the first Fresh Meat series and played student Ruth, who shined before Kingsley.

She began dating Jack Whitehall in 2011, after they met on set.

Sadly the couple broke up in 2017 and the following year she started dating Mamma Mia! and actor Captain America Dominic Cooper, with whom she currently lives in London.

Since Fresh Meat, Gemma has enjoyed massive success, having starred in major Hollywood films including Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, Crazy Rich Asians and several Marvel films.

She was also one of 15 women selected by Meghan Markle to appear on the cover of British Vogue September 2019 edited by her.

Heather is Josie’s friend and dental student who ended up dating Kingsley, much to Josie’s disgust.

She and Josie frequently contested Kingsley, and in the third series he ended up choosing Josie over her.

Before starring in Fresh Meat, actress Sophie Wu was in the Hollywood movie Kick-Ass and its sequel.

However, since the show ended, she’s focused more on the stage and will soon be starring alongside Emilia Clarke in The Seagull in London’s West End.

She is also a mother of a boy and is pregnant with her second child.

Jelka van Houten joined the cast of Fresh Meat in series two as Sabine, the seventh housemate, replacing Paul – their housemate who never came out of his room, and was never seen on-screen.

Sabine was a Dutch mature student, who didn’t have much in common with the rest of the housemates, and judged them frequently.

Jelka is still acting, although mainly in Dutch films.

She’s also a mum to a toddler and works as a goldsmith, creating little pendants on the side.

Jack Whitehall – JP

Jack Whitehall was easily the best-known cast member when Fresh Meat began.

The already-successful comedian played Jonathan ‘JP’ Pembersley, the posh public schoolboy, who’d failed to get into a ‘proper’ university, and had ended up at the poly instead.

Since Fresh Meat Jack’s travelled round the world with his hilarious dad in Netflix’s Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father.

He’s also hosted the Brit Awards, the Royal Variety Performance and is a regular on Sky game show A League of Their Own.

And he’s broken Hollywood, having starred in Jungle Cruise with Dwayne Johnson, and, most recently, Clifford the Big Red Dog.

Jack is now in a relationship with model Roxy Horner.
