Are you looking forward to the return of Bridgerton?

However, plenty of Nicola's followers were also overjoyed at what wrapping filming on Bridgerton means for Nicola's other show, Derry Girls. As one said: "Does a wrap on Pen mean you'll be stepping into Claire's shoes soon?!! So excited for the new seasons of Bridgerton and Derry Girls!

It seems that heading back to Northern Ireland to shoot series three of the hit Channel 4 comedy is exactly what Nicola may be doing since earlier this week her co-star Siobhán McSweeney, who plays nun Sister Michael teased that filming had kicked off.

She shared a photo of her character's nun's headpiece and black shoes and wrote: "Hello old friend. #sistermichael #derrygirls."

The news of Derry Girls' return will come as a relief for many fans who have been waiting for the third series for over two years. While the third series was confirmed in April 2019, filming has been repeatedly delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic - until now we hope!
