The pair also played a game on how well they knew one another, where Freddie was asked if Corey was more likely to binge watch a show or just watch one episode. He said: “I’ve seen you watching single episode. I watch him watching single episodes.”
Corey also knew that Freddie’s favourite destination was France, explaining: “You’re always in France. Freddie’s lovely partner is French from Marseille.”
The cast are clearly all very close, with Corey sharing snaps of his co-stars saying that they “made some of the best months of [his] life”.
The star is currently in a relationship, though not much is known about his girlfriend. In an interview, he said: ” As soon as I got the job, I was like, ‘All right, I gotta binge this thing.’ I sat down with my girlfriend and we did the whole shebang.”

Speaking about landing the role, he said: “I was at my girlfriend’s place. I got the call at midnight because it was decision that had been made in LA, so it was on LA time, and so I was already asleep and I didn’t want to wake up [my girlfriend’s] housemate.
“So I was in a robe in the corridor and I remember being like, ‘These things go either way, don’t feel sorry for me, don’t pity me, I don’t want any of that, it’s probably not going to work out’. And then I came back like ‘Oh my god I don’t know what’s just happened’. She said, ‘You’ve got to do something to celebrate’, and the only place was the local snooker club so we went and played snooker and that’s how we celebrated.”
