[[WMG: Kingsley is actually [[TheInbetweeners Simon]].]]
A) They're the same character.
B) The timeline fits. In the summer of 2011, the Inbetweeners movie is released, showing the gang on holiday the summer just before they go to university. FreshMeat started airing in the autumn of 2011, when Simon would have been going University.
C) It's the same actor.
D) They are literally the same character.
** Simon may well have been embarrassed by his past, so chose Kingsley as a name to distance himself from it. He never keeps in touch with old friends, and who can blame him, when you have friends like [[AllMenArePerverts Jay]], [[TheDitz Neil]] and [[NerdGlasses Will]].
*** As of Series 3 we haven't been introduced to his parents or relatives, so the makers are probably keeping this trope up deliberately. Kingsley's on and off relationship with Josie mimics his one with Carly except that Josie has a far more similar personality.
*** In Series 1 he tells Josie that he never got the chance to lose his virginity because of his mum. In TheInbetweeners, Simon's parent's insist on him keeping the door of his room open when he has girls over.
[[WMG: Kingsley has a [[SeparatedAtBirth twin brother]] raised in North America, played by MichaelCera.]]
Needless to say, they have the same mannerisms and personality.
[[WMG: Howard is Gary's Twin]]
Its the same actor and both characters are roughly the same age. However Gary's flamboyant personality resulted in his brother being much more of an awkward human being and being bad with people, having to constantly live in his brother's shadow.
