In case you needed a reminder that every man and his dog is talking about Bridgerton right now, even Kim Kardashian has been tweeting about the Netflix original.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star hasn't actually watched the show yet, and was instead looking for advice on whether to give it a go.

Step forward, Nicola Coughlan.

The Derry Girls actress, who plays Penelope Featherington in the hit show, was on hand to reply to Kim's tweet, when the reality star asked her 68.7million Twitter followers for some Bridgerton-based advice.

'Should I start Bridgerton tonight?' Kim, 40, wrote on Tuesday (January 26).

Nicola replied, 'I’m biased, but yes.'

Netflix also replied, 'Yes. Keeping up with Bridgerton.'

We couldn't agree more.

Speaking of her role in Bridgerton, Nicola previously opened up about how she landed the part of Penelope to Variety.

'When I went for the first audition, I only had a couple of days to prepare; I didn’t have time to read the books or do anything like that,' the 34-year-old revealed. 'I just thought, 'I’ll give this a go and if I get a second call, then I’ll read everything.' But that didn’t happen, I just got the job.'

'So then it was like, 'I’d better read these books and figure out who this character is.' I also went to a lot of the fan forums online, because these books have been out for 20 years. People adore them and have such a connection to them. Penelope is really close to their hearts.'

And boy did Nicola do the role justice!
