Nicola Coughlan Hits Back At Podcast Host Who Called Her 'The Fat Girl From Bridgerton'

Nicola Coughlan - the mega talented actress who stars in the likes of Bridgerton and Derry Girls - has hit back at a comment made online about the outfit she chose for last night's Golden Globes.

The comment was made by host of the Big Calf Podcast, Amanda Richards, who referred to Nicola - who looked gorgeous in a yellow tulle Molly Goddard dress - as "the fat girl from Bridgerton".

"The fat girl from Bridgerton is wearing a black cardigan at the Golden Globes, bc no matter how hot and stylish you are, if you're a fat girl there will always be a black cardigan you think about wearing, then decide against, but ultimately wear bc you feel like you have to," the tweet read.

And Nicola was having absolutely none of it, clapping back at the tweet by replying: "I thought the cardigan looked ace, Molly Goddard used them on her runway with the dresses that's where the idea came from, also I have a name."

Thousands rushed to support Nicola, with one writing: "Just popped in to tell you how gorgeous you are. I'm sorry you have to read such drivel about yourself. You looked amazing."

While one added: "Nicola Coughlan, star of Bridgerton and Derry Girls, paired a black cardi with a stunning gown by Molly Goddard and some serious bling in a perfect look for this Zoom meets Glam #GoldenGlobes. Fixed it."

And another said: "Can you make this point without dehumanizing and projecting onto Nicola Coughlan - and inadvertently reinforcing assumptions about how fat women feel or have been made to feel in formal dress? This can't be how clocking a universal experience works."

Responding to that particular comment, Amanda added: "Agree, her style is killer. and it was a choice! She replied and said so, and correctly called me out for not using her name.

"I definitely projected my own feelings about the requisite fat girl cover up cardigan onto that look."

We for one think Nicola looked unreal at last night's awards. The 34-year-old recently delighted fans, after revealing comedy hit Derry Girls would begin filming its third season this year.

When Season 2 of the popular show ended back in 2019, it was immediately renewed for a third instalment. But sadly, like many of our favourite TV shows and films over the last 12 months, it suffered a delay. You can read more about that here.
