Simone Ashley Defends Nicola Coughlan Against Body-Shaming Comments

Bridgerton’s Nicola Coughlan Reacts to Claim Steamy Polin Scenes Were Deleted From Season 3

Simone Ashley isn’t letting anyone sully Nicola Coughlan‘s name. 

The Sex Education alum clapped back at body-shaming comments directed at her Bridgerton costar, who took center stage in season three as her character Penelope Featherington found love with Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton).

“The haters are going to hate, and I think we can all relate to that, but I really don’t think that she’s allowing that to bother her,” Simone said at a press conference during the Monte-Carlo Television Festival June 15. “She has a strong and fruitful career and entire life ahead of her. I really believe in her, as the world does as well.”

“I think Nicola is just absolutely flying,” she continued. “She is a gorgeous, strong, confident, intelligent woman, seeing her do this press tour and spread so much joy and inspiration to everyone—especially women—all over the world. I’m inspired by her as well. She’s also a really kind human being, and I think that’s such a universal language that people can relate to.”
