MANILA - He previously sent the hearts of his fans racing with shirtless videos and ads, but James Reid's latest steamy scene on "Till I Met You" drove his admirers into overdrive.
The newest episode of the late night drama, aired Tuesday, featured a sex scene between Reid's character Basti and Iris, portrayed by his onscreen partner and real-life girlfriend, Nadine Lustre.
Frustrated with their parents bickering over their upcoming wedding, Basti and Iris decided to storm off. Overcome by their emotions, the two started passionately making out at the back of their best friend's car.
Teasingly framed, the steamy sex scene that followed featured shots of Basti slowly taking off Iris' bra, and more hot moments from the pair, leaving their fans online hungry for more. The show's official hashtag was the top trending topic on Twitter worldwide, drawing more than a million tweets.
But not everything that happened in the episode was rosy.
After having sex, Iris admitted feeling guilt, considering that she saw the struggles of her mother, Cass (Carmina Villaroel), who gave birth to her out of wedlock.
Completely ignoring the tiny detail that their parents have yet to give them their blessing, the best solution the two crazed lovebirds came up with was to push the date of their marriage forward. Predictably, this did not sit well with Cass, who resorted to giving her daughter the cold-shoulder treatment.
Taking a hint, Iris went off with Basti once more.
