She tucked her dark cropped ‘do back from her beaming features as she gratefully accepted the award.

Created by and starring Phoebe, the acclaimed sitcom dropped its second season on Amazon Prime this year in the US and aired on BBC Three in the UK prior to this.

The show is said not to extend beyond the two seasons that have been released, both of which were critically acclaimed, each with a 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. 

The show was based up Phoebe’s one-woman routine, first performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Following the sitcom’s finale, Phoebe announced that she would be resurrecting the stage version – which then sold out all 30 dates in less than an hour.

The actress will play the West End as Fleabag for a strictly limited four week run this month, marking her last ever time in the role.

The 65-minute performance, which played at the Soho Theatre and Edinburgh in 2013, is set to take place at Wyndham’s Theatre in London for 30 performances over four weeks from 28 August.

Fans of the series were disappointed to learn that the scribe – who has been working on the script of the latest James Bond film – would not make a season three of Fleabag. And so, this final opportunity to watch the character in action will surely soften the blow.

Fleabag is an account of ‘some sort of woman living her sort of life’ – and won Phoebe a Fringe First award after its original debut.

The show sees the eponymous heroine coping with her best friend’s untimely death, as well as sex and business in the modern age.

‘Fleabag may appear emotionally unfiltered and oversexed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. With family and friendships under strain and a guinea pig café struggling to keep afloat, Fleabag suddenly finds herself with nothing to lose,’ reads the play synopsis.
