It will see the 34-year-old create and produce new programmes for streaming service Amazon Prime.

Waller-Bridge said: “I’m insanely excited to be continuing my relationship with Amazon. Working with the team on Fleabag was the creative partnership dreams are made of.

“It really feels like home. I can’t wait to get going!”
