Star of hit TV show Derry Girls, Nicola Coughlan has responded to a comment made by a tabloid newspaper criticising the way she looked at the BAFTA TV Awards.

The Daily Mirror labelled the actress as one of the “worst dressed” stars of the night, describing the 32-year-old’s pink dress as “not the most flattering”. 

A Twitter user brought the article to the Irish star’s attention, condemning it for “contributing to the persistent degradation of women”. 

Nicola responded with: “I look smokin’, sorry ’bout it.”


Fellow actors have come forward to support the star.

We don’t know about you, but we think Nicola looks gorgeous!
