“We are beyond thrilled that Fleabag picked up 6 awards this evening – especially for Phoebe and Harry. Although it was one of the funniest scripts we’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, Fleabag is also one of the most romantic, heart-breaking, smart and devastating programmes on television; which only proves the genius of Phoebe and the phenomenal cast."
