Marquez is now 21, Roche 22 and Drew-Honey 26, and it looks like they're still good friends as over the weekend Drew-Honey shared photos of them together on Instagram captioned: "Family. #grateful"

The Outnumbered stars might be all grown up now, but they haven't ruled out a return to the show.

Drew-Honey previously said: "[Show creator] Andy Hamilton has mentioned a few times that he’d love to, every couple of years, or every year, do some sort of Outnumbered special because we hope that everyone would still be interested in finding out how we’re all getting on."

And Dennis said in an interview: "I don't know. I wouldn't be at all surprised if there was another special at some point.

"As I've said before, kids don't leave home until they're about 35, so we can... we've got years. Years and years."

The sitcom's children aren't the only stars of the show to have stayed close - Dennis and Skinner, who played mum and dad Pete and Sue, have been in a relationship in real life since 2017 although they kept it secret to begin with.

Sharing the news with Mail on Sunday in 2018, Dennis said: "I am very, very happy, we are so very happy."
