The students can feel the tension between them whenever Eggsy has to steal one of the kids for a football team meeting and they can’t miss the way Eggsy blushes whenever Mr Hart so much as looks at him

Because Eggsy is friendly with his students they like to take the mick and are singing “Eggsy and Mr Hart sitting in a tree” when Harry pops into the school gym to check on a student who skipped detention with him
