Asa Butterfield, who plays Otis Milburn in Sex Education, has told people who take his photo on a night out to "f*** off". Eek.

What with the third season of the much-loved show dropping on Netflix last week [Friday 17th September], it's understandable that fans are excited. But the 24-year-old has called people out for trying to take photos and videos of him while he's out.

Writing on Twitter on Sunday, Asa said, "I’m so tired of people filming me/taking pics without asking while I’m on a night out. It actually kills my mood and my night, f*** off, leave me be please."

He later added, "Tweeting this from a cab home after I’ve had to slap multiple phones out my face tonight."

It's completely understandable that Asa may want privacy and to enjoy his evening out - it can't be nice having phone cameras thrusted in your face. However some fans have taken offence to his comments, pointing out that not all viewers are guilty of it, and they may just be excited to see their idol in the flesh.

This comes as the actor recently opened up to Cosmopolitan UK about the prospect of a season four. "We don’t know [whether there will be more.] It’s out of our hands at this point. I wish I could tell you more, I genuinely don’t know," he said.

"I’d love to do a fourth season, because we have so much fun on this show. At the same time we’ve been doing it for three years now, and I’d be happy saying goodbye to these characters… We’ll have to see."

Sex Education season 3 is now streaming on Netflix.
