The deal means anything the 34-year-old writes will stream on the service first.

A source said: “It is quite unprecedented. It just shows the pulling power Phoebe has right now. She’s the most sought-after woman in the industry right now.”

Her show Fleabag, based on her one-woman comedy show, won four Emmys including Outstanding Comedy Series, with Phoebe winning both Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, and Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series.

Phoebe has worked with Amazon Prime since 2016 — it screened her BBC Three series in the US before it went worldwide.

She said yesterday: “I’m insanely excited to be continuing my relationship with Amazon. It really feels like home. I can’t wait to get going.”

Phoebe — who has been drafted in to the new James Bond film team to make the female characters more believable — is also behind BBC1’s Killing Eve, whose star Jodie Comer bagged the Lead Actress in a Drama Series Emmy.
