He’s come a long way from his Neville Longbottom days…

Matthew Lewis, who played shy Neville in the Harry Potter movie series, shocked everyone with his glow up from awkward wizard to beautiful swan, and even gave birth to one of the internet’s favourite slang terms: ‘Neville Longbottoming’.

While it’s been years since he hung up his cloak and wand (don’t be rude), he’s continued to grace our screens in a number of movies and TV shows, and for that we’re eternally grateful.

His latest small screen venture is Girlfriends, an ITV drama starring fellow Harry Potter actor Zoë Wanamaker, and the first episode saw 28-year-old Matthew appear in just his boxers, much to viewers’ delight.

If you’re not sold yet, check out screengrabs from the episode below…

You can watch Girlfriends on ITV at 9pm on Wednesdays, or you can catch up on the ITV Hub.
