When asked 'who is the bigger party animal', Paul joked: 'I felt like I became 42 at the end of this job. I just wanted to sleep. I was 23 at the start and by the end 47.'

The Q&A comes after Normal People became BBC's sauciest show, thanks to its eye-watering number of sex scenes.

The corporation's past shows Versailles and Wanderlust held the record for being the raunchiest series to date, until the current hit show landed on TV screens.

Normal People - which is shown on BBC Three - features over 41 minutes of amorous action across its 12 episodes.

Calculated by The Sun, the publication categorises these scenes as 'sex, kissing or foreplay', claiming that 12 percent of the show features these. 

The second episode of the show features 11 minutes of sex between stars Daisy Edgar-Jones and Paul Mescal.

The 12-part drama, based on Sally Rooney's bestselling novel about the turbulent relationship between working-class Connell [Mescal] and well-heeled Marianne Sheridan [Edgar-Jones], has been praised for its unflinching take on sexuality.  

The series has been downloaded over 23 million times.

A source said: 'The writers wanted to stay true to the book and that featured a lot of sex. They didn't want to portray it gratuitously though, and an intimacy coach was used to ensure the cast were happy at all times.

'But there's no denying there's a lot of nakedness and lots of sex — it's probably not one to watch with the parents!'

Paul recently revealed that he had to overcome crippling stage fright before he was able to follow the career which is now making his name.

'I had this affliction, whenever I'd get nervous, that I would stand really straight and sort of lock my knees,' the Irishman revealed. 'But because the shake seemed to be coming from my knees… my whole body would start to vibrate. 

'That would stop when I'd sing in front of three or four people after a time and I thought I had got over it.

'Unfortunately, I got a rude awakening when I went out on stage in front of 600, 700 people and it came back with a vengeance.' 

Despite his reluctance to face the crowds, he was quickly bitten by the acting bug. 

'It is a very sexy thing at 16 to be able to express the things that these characters are feeling,' he told the Irishman Abroad podcast.

'Getting to do that [at school] on stage I found incredibly intoxicating and then, coming out and bowing at the end and hearing a roar from the people in your community like they are at a Rolling Stones concert… 

'I remember coming home and [thinking] I adored that.' 

He studied at the Lir Academy drama school in Dublin, and three years ago he was cast as the lead in a stage production of The Great Gatsby. Several other theatre jobs followed, although Normal People is his first TV role. 

It is set to make Paul a star both sides of the Atlantic, as it is also being carried on the American streaming service Hulu. 

Social media is humming with positive comments about his acting and looks, with some fans tipping him as a future James Bond. 

Such is the success of the show that a cheap Argos chain Connell wears around his neck has acquired its own Instagram page - with 60,000 followers.
