Joe Thomas is "daunted" at the prospect of making an 'Inbetweeners' film.

The 27-year-old actor - who picked up the Digital Choice award at last night's (26.01.11) National Television Awards - admitted he and his co-stars are already feeling the pressure of creating a big screen version of the E4 comedy.

He told BANG Showbiz: "We're all pretty nervous because we all want it to be good but we're all really excited. We used to joke about making an 'Inbetweeners' film so the fact that we're doing it is somewhat daunting.

"I think there's pressure but whenever a TV show goes to a film there's always added pressure of trying to make it work and everything but we've read the script and we think the script is good so hopefully it will all be fine."

Joe - who plays unlucky in love teen Simon Cooper in 'The Inbetweeners' - also credited fans with the overall success of the series, as he believes they are "the best thing about the show".

He added: "We've always had a close relationship with our fans. They're the best thing about the show they're the ones responsible for the success of it. The fact we're here doing a film at all is down to them more than anything else."
