The Duke of Edinburgh Awards is the fifth episode of the second series of The Inbetweeners. It first aired on April 30th, 2009 on E4.


Will is picked to run the school's Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme, having been told by Mr. Gilbert that he was chosen because he is a virgin and, although Jay refuses to help, Neil and Simon agree to participate. Will signs himself, Simon and Neil up at a local retirement home in order to fulfil one of their “D of E” modules and also with the hopes of dating his former babysitter Daisy, who works at the home.

The boys go to the home for the first time, and Daisy tells Will how she wants the following day and night off so that she can attend a friend's hen party. Once again Will volunteers himself and his friends for the shifts (after also persuading Daisy to go on a date with him), but Simon then reveals that he has to spend time with his dad and cannot complete the shifts. Jay agrees to help, but only if he receives money for it.

The next day Will finds himself exhausted and falls asleep in the common room at school. Jay and Neil play a prank on him by squeezing hair-removal cream down his pants, resulting in his pubic hair falling out. Will panics before his date and quickly stuffs a woman's wig down his pants at the retirement home. After their date, Will tries to keep Daisy from finding out about the wig but she does and tells Will to leave after thinking he was too young to have pubic hair in the first place and that she was too old for him. The next day, Will tries to explain to Daisy, but she is too embarrassed to talk to him.

Meanwhile, Jay becomes bored watching over the old people and sneaks off to an apparent unoccupied room to masturbate. When he is discovered, the boys are kicked off the scheme.
