Are Sex Education's Asa Butterfield and Mimi Keene dating in real life?

Despite *that* voicemail saga with Maeve, Sex Education fans fell in love with Ruby and Otis as a couple during season 3. But now their attention has turned to actors Asa Butterfield and Mimi Keene, amid speculation they might be dating too.

*Spoilers* Ruby Matthews and Otis Milburn became the stand-out couple of Sex Education season 3, when they started casually hooking up during the summer holidays. Things took a turn when Ruby said 'I love you' and he failed to reciprocate it, eventually breaking up and leading Otis back to Maeve.

Now, though, fans on social media are shipping the idea of Mimi and Asa together in real life, and looking for every little clue they might be a thing.

"If Asa and Mimi are dating irl I'm gonna pass out," one person wrote, while another put, "Are Asa and Mimi dating? I sure hope so." Someone else added, "Not people thinking Asa and Mimi are dating cause of an Instagram caption."

The Instagram caption in question is one Mimi posted on 18 June, from a field of wild flowers. Along with a series of photos of her lying in the grass with her dog, she wrote, "Do you like butter?" referencing the buttercup flower.

Fans have noticed Asa shared a similar photo two weeks earlier, on 4 June, with a buttercup in his mouth, around his neck and between his fingers. Wait, what?!

Could be a coincidence... Could be a subtle link between the two. What do you think?
