Normal People’s Paul Mescal and India Mullen are roomies and we’re totally here for this friendship.

The co-stars, who played Connell and Peggy in the hit BBC Three series, are said to share a flat together, with Paul moving in back in March just before the country went into lockdown.

‘Paul and India have a brilliant, flirty relationship, and are always laughing,’ an insider said.

‘They’ve grown incredibly close, and made the decision to live with each other.’

The source continued to The Sun: ‘They’re incredibly supportive of one another’s careers.’

According to reports, India is currently residing with her family in Dublin but is keeping in contact with Paul while he holds the fort in London.

On Saturday, Paul was seen making the most of his exercise time during lockdown by having a run in the glorious sunshine.

He was spotted going out for a shirtless jog through a park in east London, rocking a pair of white shorts and black trainers. And yes, he was wearing a chain.

Normal People debuted last month and is an international sensation, with Katy Perry, Kourtney Kardashian and Gemma Collins among those tuning in.

And Paul recently teased whether we could be getting a season two any time soon, following the success of the first series.

Chatting to Wonderland, he said: ’Oh, there’s no question that character to me is still alive and breathing and very much has a lot of life left to live. [Connell] has a relationship with Marianne that is maybe unfinished.

‘I do feel like the series that has finished is its own thing, and I’m totally comfortable with that. 

‘It’s not on the cards at the moment, but if I got the opportunity to play him again, amazing.’

Normal People is available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
