Fleabag stars answer fan theories

If you've seen the final episode and wondered what it all means, you're not the only one. We put some of the questions and theories that fans have to stars Bill Paterson and Sian Clifford.

BBC, 9th April 2019

There are spirited debates to be had about whether this run of Phoebe Waller-Bridge's peerless sitcom is superior to its predecessor, but it clearly hasn't suffered the difficult second season syndrome some feared.

M&S see increase of gin & tonic sales thanks to Fleabag

If you've been watching Fleabag season two, you'll have noticed many things. Phoebe Waller-Bridge still has razor sharp wit, the nation's obsession isn't waning anytime soon and if you were ever to order the sexy priest a drink, ordering a gin & tonic would be a safe bet. Why? Well, he happily drank Marks & Spencer's own-brand G&T in episode two of season two and, in today's most unexpected news, the retailer has revealed there has been a spike in sales since he enjoyed the tipple.
