The award-winning writer and actor on Fleabag, fame and the romance of female friendships

The award-winning writer and actor Phoebe Waller-Bridge discusses all things Fleabag: from celibacy and sexual fluidity, to how friends can be the greatest love story of your life. Show more Phoebe Waller-Bridge, the award-winning writer and creator of Fleabag, tells Jenni Murray about all things Fleabag: from celibacy, religion and sexual fluidity to the relationship between feminism and breast size, and of course the ‘Hot Priest’.

After the first season of Fleabag aired on the BBC in 2016, Phoebe brought us more complex and unpredictable female characters with her hit TV drama Killing Eve.

So how has she handled such an extraordinary run of success? And what difference has her work made to the way we see women on TV? Presenter: Jenni Murray Read more: BBC Woman's Hour

A bit of variety, please...! A whole programme devoted to one person is too much. I can imagine if you are a PWB fan it must have been great, but not everyone is. I found it rather nauseating and ended up switching it off. Was great hearing more about how she formed the Fleabag characters Listened to this FABULOUS interview en route to HooFarmTelford - so here’s a 3 legged Arctic Fox named Thor for Phoebe Waller Bridge :-)

Phoebe Waller-Bridge (14 July 1985) Plenty of influence from Ealing! Loved it and then watched the last three episodes of Fleabag over a brew and banana loaf this afternoon. The wind on Anglesey has been relentless and this brought me joy when the draughts had blown it away. Thank you. My podcast for my commute home every night🚗❤️

Missed it. Switches on iPlayer. To be followed by Fortunately podcast, Friday evening routine. And bloody marvellous it was too. Occams_Blazer I have a feeling you might like this. 😊 Thoroughly enjoyable - thank you... phoebewallerbridge has an ability to portray and articulate so much that we think and feel about being women but may be don't have the opportunity or confidence to do ourselves. Her work is not only absolutely brilliant but important too.

BBC Radio 4 - Woman's Hour, Family Secrets: Sarah and a secret revealed by a DNA test“The biggest secret of all took me 44 years to find out” - Sarah’s story of discovering she’s not who she thought she was: 📻

How lovely was that?! Fleabag What a brilliant woman ⭐️ Really enjoyed this. I have had those reservations about the very privileged world that Fleabag portrays - but it’s her truth, it’s completely honest about her ‘world’ - which is fair enough & makes sense. I love her honesty & openness - honesty is always good 👍

Love PWB - but a whole programme devoted to her?! Get a sense of proportion . There are more important things in the world than a TV series and a new book. Disappointing. Lovely chat 🥰
