On a scale of 1-10, how deep is your Riverdale obsession? If it’s anything like ours you’ll be counting down the days until the next episode and shipping Bughead HARD.

Yep, good girl Betty Cooper and Southside Serpent Jughead Jones might be the most unexpected couple on TV (cough, Netflix), but they’re also the best… With Archie and Veronica obviously coming in a very close second.

Not convinced? Here’s all the proof you need that Bughead are the greatest romantic addition to your screen since… well, ever.

1. When Jughead climbed through Betty’s window and they had their first kiss


2. When Juggy walked Betty home in the rain

And they obviously snogged again.

3. When Betty approved of Jughead’s suit for Jason’s funeral

You have to love a man in a suit, even on a dark occasion, and especially when said man is Jughead Jones.

4. When they ate lunch together and Jug’s face said it all

We’re amazed he can hide anything with those facial expressions.

5. When they went to Polly’s baby shower together

Oh, and guess what? More smooching!

6. When Betty stood by Jughead and his dad

When FP told Jug he didn’t kill Jason, Jug believed him, and Betty in turn believed Jughead. All about that trust.

7. When Betty made Juggy’s birthday movie tradition a little more special


8. When they said they loved each other

We’re not crying, YOU are.

9. When they woke up like this

Too. Cute.

10. When they greeted each other like this at Pop’s Diner

All because they’re at different schools now and they missed each other. Sob.

11. And then they talked about running away together

“Like Romeo and Juliet, but we live happily ever after instead.” Excuse us while we go and bawl our eyes out. Betty and Jughead 4eva.

Who’s started counting down the days until series two of Riverdale? Now that we know it’s arriving on US TV on Wednesday 11 October – and presumably on Netflix two days later, in its usual Friday slot – we’re struggling to focus on anything else. You see, we’ve been suffering major withdrawal symptoms over a certain Jughead Jones, aka Mr Cole Sprouse.

Is it his epic observations on the rest of Riverdale? The fact that he’s from the wrong side of the tracks? Or just because he’s so blooming cute? Who knows, but we’ve definitely got a crush on Jug and the boy behind him.

Southside Serpents and that brooding voiceover aside, there are plenty more reasons to love the actor formerly known as ‘Ben from Friends’. Here are seven of them…

He’s not just an actor, but a super talented photographer, too

A post shared by Cole Sprouse (@colesprouse) on

Cole recently shot Kendall Jenner for the Sunday Times Style magazine and has also snapped an adidas running campaign, as well as editorials for Teen Vogue. Not just a pretty face (but he does look great in front of the camera, too…)

He has a hilarious second Instagram

Who would have thought, the mother with child, would have prioritized taking our picture over steadying her baby's carriage on a moving train? I did. I would have thought. Firstly, her child is too young for The Street Life of Shaq and Kobe, so we all know she was taking that picture for herself. Unless of course she was making a long term investment, banking on the baby enjoying the show when #it grows up. #ItsCalledInvesting. Trying to be sneaky, she made the number 1 rookie mistake, #Flash. My poor, helpless, innocent, virgin brother was caught in the middle of our duel. You can see the fear in his eyes and the determination in mine, both being trumped by the look of shame in hers. #cameraduels #BabyOnBoard #FamilyDrama #TheStreetLifeOfShaqAndKobe

A post shared by Cole Sprouse (@camera_duels) on

If you’re not following @camera_duels, get on it now, because the captions alone are among the most brilliant we’ve seen. According to its bio, “This Instagram is dedicated to the people out there who secretly take photos of me, and how I take photos of them first. May the fastest camera win.” Cue a feed full of randoms trying to take sneaky snaps of Cole, accompanied by captions of who won the duel, and what the fans said in their defence. Genius.

He RT’d this girl who said her aunt looked like him and it went viral…

…which is kind of a reflection of Cole’s Twitter in itself. Full of self-deprecating humour and sarcastic life advice (“yawn in the club to see who’s checkin you out”), if you’re not following already, you know what to do.

He wrote this love letter to his mum as a kid

Then shared it with us all on Twitter. He really did have some Jughead tendencies back then, by the looks of things.

He admitted to a childhood crush on Jennifer Aniston

Speaking to the New York Post earlier this year, Cole – who played Ross’ son Ben in Friends when he was “7 or 8” – said: “I had a really, really hard time working with Aniston because I was so in love with her. I was infatuated. I was speechless — I’d get all bubbly and forget my lines and completely blank … It was so difficult.” We’d have been the same, tbf.

He’s never not cute
