Jennifer Lopez responds after Phoebe Waller-Bridge says she inspired ‘Hot Priest’ from Fleabag

Phoebe Waller-Bridge revealed that Jennifer Lopez was a major inspiration for her hit show Fleabag, as she accepted her latest trophy for the popular BBC sitcom.

The writer, creator and star of the series won Best Actress in a Comedy Series at the Critics Choice Awards on Sunday 12 January. 

Accepting the award, Waller-Bridge let the audience in on one of the secrets behind her much-loved character, the “hot priest” (played by Andrew Scott).

“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.”
