Kim Kardashian fan girls over Nicola Coughlan
KUWTK star Kim Kardashian has shown she is a massive Bridgerton stan.
The reality star, '[freaked] out,' when Irish actress and star of the show, Nicola Coughlan, reached out to her on Twitter.
Nicola said, 'As the world’s number one @bridgerton Stan does @KimKardashian know that the Kardashians were a massive inspiration for the Featheringtons and we talked about them all the time during our fittings?'
'Because I feel like she should know this'
Kim was over the moon, and responded, 'WHAT?!?! I am freaking out!!!!!!'
'This tweet was sent to me on my @bridgerton group chat! Can I please come to a fitting?!?!'
'It would make my whole life!!!!!! I love you Lady W!!!'
Nicola replied, 'Omg yesss of course we would love to have you!'
'Also did you know that Mr Pearl made your corset for the Met Gala and the very next one he made was mine for Bridgerton?'
'You’ve been part of the Bridgerton world for longer than you know!'
Why of course, Duchess Kardashian of Calabasas! Lady Whistledown is happy to declare you the season’s true incomparable 💎

The official Netflix Twitter account chimed in, 'Kim Featherington does have a nice ring to it -- I'll see what I can do!'
And of course, fans are calling for Kim to make a cameo appearance in the second season.
One Twitter user said it would make up for Regé-Jean Page's departure.

Well, we do have three confirmed seasons to go so there's plenty of time for a Kim-eo (see what we did there).
In other Bridgerton news, Irish actor Calam Lynch has joined the cast for the next installment.
You might recognise Lynch from his small role in season two of Derry Girls.
