Derry Girls star Nicola Coughlan has hit out at a theatre critic for calling her fat.

It's the second time British Theatre Guide reviewer Philip Fisher has commented on her weight when critiquing her performance.

Nicola - who plays Clare in Derry Girls - expressed her disappointment with the website on Twitter and asked how it could continue to support this.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Philip Fisher, I know you are a theatre reviewer and your body had no relevance to your job but maybe you’d like me to cruelly review it for you and post it online?</p>&mdash; Nicola Coughlan (@nicolacoughlan) <a href="https://twitter.com/nicolacoughlan/status/1007240824399319040?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 14, 2018</a></blockquote>

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Just so you know <a href="https://twitter.com/BritTheatreGuid?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@BritTheatreGuid</a> I am so disappointed you let a man like this review for you.<br>Let me state this clearly, he is not welcome to review any show I am in from now till forever. And I plan to be in a lot of damn shows.<br>Peace.</p>&mdash; Nicola Coughlan (@nicolacoughlan) <a href="https://twitter.com/nicolacoughlan/status/1007241383885852672?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 14, 2018</a></blockquote>

British Theatre Guide has apologised to Nicola for the offence caused and says the words have been removed from the review.
