Derry Girls star Nicola Coughlan has said goodbye after filming her final ever episode of the show.

The actress, known for playing Clare Devlin on the hit Channel 4 comedy, posted a picture on Twitter as she looked back on her time on the programme.

‘Goodbye Derry Girls, it’s been quite a ride,’ she wrote, sharing a polaroid picture of her on set.

It’s been a few weeks since the 34-year-old confirmed her return to the set of Derry Girls, as the third and final series got underway over recent months.

She’s back in upcoming episodes alongside Jamie Lee O’Donnell, Saoirse-Monica Jackson and Louisa Harland in the much-loved comedy.

Nicola was previously busy filming Bridgerton and appearing as a guest judge in RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, and Derry Girls were excited to see her back as Clare.


Derry Girls, which last aired back in 2019, follows a group of Northern Irish teens growing up during The Troubles.

Announcing the news that the series would be coming to an end after series three, show creator Lisa McGee said in a statement: ‘It was always the plan to say goodbye after three series.

‘Derry Girls is a love letter to the place I come from and the people who shaped me. It has been an honour to write it and I will be forever proud of everything it’s achieved. I’d like to thank the people of Derry and Northern Ireland for getting behind us.

‘Who knows if Erin, Clare, Orla, Michelle and James will return in some other guise someday, but for now this is it for us and we’re excited to start filming this series with our incredible cast and crew to hopefully take our loyal fans on one last adventure.’

Meanwhile, Nadine Coyle has revealed she would love to appear in Derry Girls and has even been thinking about the type of characters she could play.

Derry Girls series one and two is available to watch on All4.
