'Inbetweeners' star James Buckley thinks the world is shaped 'like bowl of porridge'
One of The Inbetweeners has gone public with his unusual idea about how our planet is shaped.
James Buckley, who played compulsive liar Jay Cartwright in the E4 series, had had his doubts on the shape of the Earth, and decided to investigate Flat Earth theories.
He recently recorded a podcast with YouTube star Alex J O’Connor (aka Cosmic Skeptic) in a bid to get to the bottom of it all.
Buckley now says the Earth could be “lumpy and bumpy” like the breakfast oatmeal dish.
He talked through his thoughts with The Sun, saying: “I thought the Earth might be flat.

“First of all I thought it was round, then I was told it was flat. Then when I started thinking it was flat it’s now round again. So I’m looking into the theory that Earth is actually lumpy and bumpy.
“I imagine it to be as if a bowl of porridge had a gravitational pull. That’s what’s in my head now.”
Buckley isn’t the only well-known name to be questioning the shape of the Earth.
Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff has also said that there is “evidence to suggest the world isn’t round.”
The cricketer is a fan of a podcast called The Flat Earthers where conspiracy theorists accuse Disney of telling lies about the shape of our planet.
The Sun quotes Fintoff saying: “If you’re in a helicopter and you hover why does the Earth not come to you if it’s round?

“Why, if we’re hurtling through space, why would water stay still? Why is it not wobbling? Also if you fire a laser about 16 miles, if the world was curved, you shouldn’t be able to see it but you can.”
Youtube has been blamed for the rising number of Flat Earth believers, with Logan Paul in particular being known for discussing the theories on his channel.
