The internet was very excited last week, when an image surfaced that seemingly showed Margot Robbie in an advert for a third series of the much-loved Sex Education show.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, as the image was a fake. The photo edited together a shot of Margot taken from the Bombshell movie, and merged it with one of Emma Mackey who plays Maeve Wiley in Sex Education.

Ever since she first appeared in the series, people have been comparing her to Margot. The mock-up picture had the caption “The big sister is here” with a date of February 2021.

Eagle-eyed Margot fans spotted that the outfit was the same as the one she wore in the journalism drama Bomsbshell.

The picture was posted on Twitter by an account called Netflix Diaries, which is in no way affiliated with the actual Netflix.

It soon racked up hundreds of thousands of likes and retweets from excited fans.

A third series is coming though, after filming had to be delayed by five months due to the pandemic.

Better luck next time.
