Nicola Coughlan has best response to Kim Kardashian debating whether to binge-watch Bridgerton

Kim Kardashian called on Twitter to help her decided whether she should get on the latest hype surrounding Netflix series Bridgerton, but little did she know one of the show’s stars would be on hand to help.

The eight-part period drama has taken the streaming platform by storm, with it being predicted that 63million households will have watched Bridgerton in just four weeks since its release on Christmas Day.

Most of us have already stormed through the steamy series, but it seems Kim has fallen a little bit behind and wanted to know whether or not she should tune in.

Wanting a fix of the Duke of Hastings no doubt, Kim tweeted: ‘Should I start Bridgerton tonight?’

It saw a whole host of fans and celebrities alike give their two cents, but the best response came from Nicola Coughlan who stars as none other than Bridgerton’s Penelope Featherington.

Unable to resist cheekily responding to Kim, Nicola tweeted back: ‘I’m biased, but yes.’

Kim might just want to take Nicola’s word for it.

If she still needed to be persuaded, though, Gemma Collins was the gal to do it.

The former Towie star made sure to give her seal of approval, as she replied: ‘Yes Kim your going to love it ! X (sic).’

Baga Chipz also dropped by to try and pique Kim’s interest, as the RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star tweeted: ”Are you a fan of Sally Webster? Her daughters in it Hun xxx.’



Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally Webster in Coronation Street, is mum to daughter Phoebe Dynevor, who stars in Bridgerton as its leading lady Daphne Bridgerton alongside Regé-Jean Page’s character Simon Basset aka the Duke.

Although, something tells us Kim might not be up to scratch with her Corrie characters…

Fans were left in stitches over Baga’s comment, with one so entertained they ‘spat out their cup of hot water’.

Another joked: ‘What would make me laugh is if kim replied like “yeh big Corrie fan hun, sally Webster is a babe” x.’

‘Baga!!! I’m screaming!!!’ posted one fan, as another tweeted: ‘This has killed me @ChipShopBird.’

Bridgerton fans Gemma and Baga will be pleased to hear that the series has officially been renewed for a second season, following its success.

While the first season followed Daphne’s search for a husband and her relationship with the Duke, the second is set to centre around Daphne’s older brother Anthony Bridgerton as he hopes to find a wife.

‘Prepare for another social season. Bridgerton is returning for season two, only on Netflix,’ tweeted the social media accounts for the show, while Bridgerton’s showrunner confirmed the news during a TV interview.

Over in the US, Chris Van Dusen told Today: ‘I am so thrilled to be announcing that Bridgerton will be back for a second season.

‘We are going to be starting filming later this Spring in London and we’re all so excited. I know the cast can’t wait to get back to it and neither can I.’

‘Season two we’re really going to be with the eldest Bridgerton brother, this season. Our Viscount Lord Anthony Bridgerton played by Jonathan Bailey.

‘We left him at the end of the first season in a bit of a crossroads so I’m looking forward to jumping in and discovering how he fares on the marriage market.’

Bridgerton is available to watch now on Netflix.
