Sex Education's Gillian Anderson shocks fans by sharing a VERY rude snap of a humble pepper

SEX Education's Gillian Anderson shocked fans by sharing a VERY rude snap of a humble pepper.

The actress, 52 – who plays sex therapist Dr jean Milburn in the hit Netflix show – made her fans giggle with her latest picture.

It showed an orange bell pepper, but when it was cut in half the owner found a naughty secret.

The growth inside appeared to look like a man's privates.

Gillian captioned the pic: "That’s one hot pepper!"

Fans were hysterical over the pic, with one person saying: "GILLIAN STOP" and another simply: "GILLIAN"

A third joked: "That’s nuts" whereas a fourth referenced her star-making role in The X Files, adding: "Damn! It's a case to be studied by Mulder and Scully."

Gillian has achieved icon status as her role of Jean on Sex Education, who is the mother of main character and amateur sex therapist Otis.

Many fans in the comments suggested this was a hint towards the anticipated third series of the show.

She does have a track record of fruit-and-vegetable based cheekiness in the run up to the series – as before season one she showed fans how to perform a sex act on a courgette.

The deleted scene was originally from an episode of Sex Education and showed her character Jean demonstrate in a video revealed to the whole school.

A supposedly more youthful Jean can be seen performing the act on a courgette to the camera, where she teaches viewers her 'technique'.

To the amusement of the producers, the actress then picks up a tomato before the clip cuts out.

"Should have seen what I did with the tomato. #bts regram @sexeducation @netflixuk," she wrote alongside the video.

Viewers of the hit series are convinced series three has wrapped filming.

Eagle-eyed fans show took to the subreddit and shared a snap of a member of the show's production team in front of the Moordale Secondary School lectern emblazoned with the school's symbol.

The caption read: "And that's a wrap!", leaving fans hopeful it meant series three was in the can and heading to the streaming service soon, although Netflix is yet to confirm a release date.
