James Patrick Buckley (born 14 August 1987) is an English actor, best known for his role as Jay Cartwright ...
Jay Cartwright (James Buckley) is obsessed with sex, with almost all his comments being about the subject. He frequently lies and exaggerates about his experiences – sexual and otherwise – often making crude comments about girls/women in general and offering highly questionable 'advice' to his friends. His dad contradicts Jay's claims in an often bullying nature, claiming Jay is very unsuccessful with women (this is likely the source of Jay's obsession). At the end of the first series, he opens up to John, admitting that many of his stories are somewhat exaggerated because he is worried that people don't notice him, and that he is afraid of being ignored. In the final episode of the second series "End of Term", Jay finally gets a girlfriend called Chloe and he is more interested in her than for just sex; he genuinely has feelings for her. Following his dad's advice, he begins texting her and messaging her over the Internet frequently, and this leads her to dump him at the end of the episode, citing that he is too sensitive and needy for her. Jay attempts to twist this into him dumping her when the rest of the gang find him crying, but as per usual, they don't believe him. In series 3, we can see Jay can now drive (albeit incredibly carelessly, confusing whose right of way it is, and only on a provisional license), calling his mum's red Nissan Micra 'The Mingemobile'. He is very confident in his own abilities, although Neil is the only one of his friends who believes any of his outlandish claims. We see in Series 3, Episode 5 ('Home Alone') that Jay has a dog called Benji who is mixed breed terrier, who was eventually put down in the same episode. Jay claims that he has played for West Ham and always wears football shirts. Jay also likes motorbikes although in Series 3, Episode 3 ('Will's Dillema), Neil gets a new motorbike and because Neil broke his wrist, Jay offered to ride it home (claiming considerable skill at riding) and crashes it within several feet. In the final episode of series 3, it is briefly touched upon that Jay was involved in homoerotic activities with a "weird neighbour" (age unspecified) when he was young - and Jay's Dad reveals (in a text) that Jay went to see a psychologist when he was younger.
