The show, which stars 34-year-old Phoebe as what she described last night as a “dirty, pervy, angry, messed-up woman” in London, proved a huge hit with the Emmy judges.
Phoebe said she was “really shaking” after collecting her first award for writing, explaining: “I find writing really hard and really painful but the reason I do it is this. So thank you so much.”
She added: “It’s just really wonderful to know and reassuring that a dirty, pervy, angry messed up woman can make it to the Emmys so thank you so much.”
Collecting her second award for lead actress she cried: “Oh my god, no. Thank you. To be nominated with these unbelievable actresses I’ve looked up to is incredible.

“It’s sickening how much we all love each other, I’ve been so supported by the whole cast.”
Fleabag got an impressive 11 nominations and ended up landing four wins.
The haul includes prizes for Outstanding lead actress for Phoebe, Outstanding directing in a comedy series, Outstanding writing for a comedy series and Outstanding comedy series.
It has been a huge night for British productions, with Black Mirror, Killing Eve and Sky’s Chernobyl also picking up awards.
