Fan favourite Fleabag won big at the Emmy awards this weekend after scooping not one but three accolades over the course of the ceremony.

The BBC show, which is the brainchild of actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge who writes and stars in the comedy, took home Emmys for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series and Outstanding Comedy Series. Phoebe was also won the award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

Fleabag is the first British-made show to ever win an Emmy for Best Comedy Series. Despite the shows success however, Phoebe has ruled out making another season of Fleabag – or at least not until the 34-year-old turns 50.

So what is Fleabag about and if you want to watch (or re-watch) the show, how can you watch the series?
