The writer, creator and star of the series won Best Actress in a Comedy Series at the Critics Choice Awards on Sunday 12 January.
“This is a bit of a random shout out, but you have no idea how much you can accidentally inspire people just by doing your work, and somebody inspired this show in a way that she will never know, and that is JLo,” she said.
“I decided The Priest’s favourite song was ‘Jenny From The Block’ and it opened the entire character up for me,” she continued. “That’s really genuine, so thank you JLo.”
After the ceremony, Lopez wrote on Twitter: “I’m a huge fan of yours too, #PhoebeWallerBridge! Congrats on the wins for @fleabag! #CriticsChoiceAwards.”
