They had electric chemistry when playing on-screen lovers in hit show Fleabag.

So of course Phoebe Waller-Bridge was supported by her ‘sexy priest’ co-star Andrew Scott at the press night after-party for the actress’ theatre version of the BBC sensation at The Century Club in London on Wednesday.

Phoebe, 34, looked chic in a velvet green trouser suit, which she wore over a lacy black top, as she appeared keen to celebrate her success with Andrew and a host of her celebrity pals. 

Phoebe added a further pop of colour to her stylish look with a slick of bright red lipstick and tossed her elegantly curled raven mane to one side as she stepped out after the performance. 

Meanwhile, Andrew also opted for an eye-catching ensemble, as he made a showstopping arrival in an open-necked purple and green silk shirt which he wore underneath a buttoned cardigan.

The beaming star coordinated his look with a pair of black trousers and a black shoes, as he appeared prepared for all eventualities by carrying a big black rucksack on his back.

Andrew’s character The Priest was introduced in the second series of the show after he was brought in to officiate her father and his second wife’s wedding, and forbidden sparks immediately flew between him and Fleabag.

The sequel series ended with Fleabag and the Sexy Priest going their separate ways during a tearful goodbye at a bus stop, however it seems their on-screen experience as resulted in a firm friendship between the pair.

After TV scribe Phoebe parked her script-writing duties on Killing Eve to concentrate on penning the latest James Bond outing No Time To Die, she also seemed thrilled to reunite with the show’s stars Fiona Shaw and Sandra Oh.

The trio hit the Century Club after the show, where they enjoyed an after party with various other names from the world of stage and screen.  

Both Fiona, 61, and Sandra, 48, wore all black for the evening.

In the play, Phoebe takes on the titular role, a sexually voracious woman living in London who speaks her mind in a fourth-wall breaking performance. 

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. 

Since taking to the stage, Phoebe, who was recently called in to offer her expertise for the upcoming Bond film No Time To Die, has seen her play receive a plethora of five-star reviews. 

The writer first created and performed Fleabag at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2013, before a successful run at the Soho Theatre led her to adapt the show for BBC Three in 2016.

Phoebe also performed a limited-run of the theatre production in New York City at the Soho Playhouse from March to April this year.
