News: Multiple Triumph For Fleabag at Emmys

Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge had a trumphant night at the Emmy Awards in America.

Waller-Bridge won Best Leading Comedy Actress, while her series Fleabag won Best Comedy Series and Best Comedy Writing.

On winning she said of her creation: "It's so wonderful and reassuring to know that a dirty, pervy, angry and messed-up woman can make it to the Emmys."

When Waller-Bridge accepted Fleabag's fourth award for Best Comedy Series, she said: "This is getting ridiculous. Fleabag started as a one-woman show at the Edinburgh festival in 2014, and the journey has been absolutely mental to get here."

Fleabag director Harry Bradbeer won Best Director for a Comedy Series. He said: "For a director, something like Fleabag only comes along once in your life."

It was a great night in Los Angeles for British comedy talent. Elsewhere Charlie Brooker won Best Television Movie for Black Mirror episode Bandersnatch and Jesse Armstrong, who first broke through co-writing C4's Peep Show with Sam Bain, won Best Writing for a Drama Series for Succession.

And Jodie Comer won best leading drama actress for playing Villanelle in Killing Eve.
