Hilarious moment Normal People’s Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones spoof X-rated sex scenes on The Late Late Show – The Sun
THE stars of Normal People have proven they can make anything hot and steamy as they recreate unsexy TV shows.
Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal have shot to fame overnight for their portrayal of Marianne and Connell on the hit BBC series.
The show has been viewed 30 million times in the UK alone and described as one of the raunchiest ever on TV, complete with full-frontal nudity from both of its stars.
But talk show host James Corden wanted to put the young stars to the test to see if there was any material they couldn't turn sexy.
The Late Late Show host asked the pair to put a Normal People twist on the very unsexy scenes, by acting out a scene of Gordon Ramsay in an episode of Hell's Kitchen talking about fish crab.
Another scene involved celebrity chef Guy Fieri describing a cabbage dish and a Home Shopping Network ad selling fancy tracksuits.
The actors nailed the challenge, but Paul eventually cracked at the end trying to make fish crab sound raunchy.
Set in Ireland, Normal People is a TV adaptation of Sally Rooney’s best-selling novel of the same name, which centres around two Irish teenagers – Marianne and Connell – from different backgrounds who fall in love.
The full series dropped on BBC iPlayer and airs two 30-minute episodes weekly on BBC One on Monday nights.
It has so far been downloaded more than 23million times and a lot of its first season is taken up with sex, kissing or foreplay.
The 12-part series has been dubbed the “horniest show on TV” and been praised by many for its representation of sexual consent.
Paul hit back at those criticising the show’s controversial sex scenes.
Speaking on the RTE One’s The Late Late Show, he said: “I actually listened in [to Liveline] yesterday, and I suppose I was a bit surprised, but the last thing I want to do is sit and judge people for that, because they’re entitled to their opinion.
“My own perspective of it is we worked hard to make it feel like it was a real, accurate and truthful representation of sex amongst young people."
