Kim Kardashian was stunned to hear that her family's reality show was the inspiration for the hit Netflix show, Bridgerton, and now wants to get involved.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, 40, said she was “freaking out” over the news after Lady Whilstledown herself, Nicola Coughlan, shared the behind-the-scenes gossip that her family inspired the Featherington characters on the show.

During the hilarious Twitter exchange on Tuesday, Nicola, 34, reached out to mum-of-four Kim to share the news and ended up organising a fitting with Kim and the cast on the next series of the show.

The Derry Girl star tweeted: “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 out fittings? Because I feel like she should know this.”

Kim was quick to see the news as she quoted the tweet 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!!!!”

The KKW beauty founder has been a huge fan of the show since it was released at Christmas and has been keeping up with all the latest developments on social media.

A delighted 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?”

True fangirl Kim wrote: “OMG I’m gonna faint!!!!! Does this make me an honorary Duchess of Bridgerton?!?!?! I am the corset Queen!!!”

Nicola went on to dub the reality star as a Duchess with her official title as Lady Whistledown.

She replied: “Why of course, Duchess Kardashian of Calabasas! Lady Whistledown is happy to declare you the season’s true incomparable.

“You’ve been a part of the Bridgerton world for longer than you know! You know I’ve loved Kim for like over a decade, I can’t even deal.”

Nicola added that her on-screen sisters Bessie Carter (Prudence Featherington) and Harriet Cains (Philipa Featherington) regularly debate over which sister is which Kardashian on the show.


While the first series of the period drama focuses on the relationship between Daphne Bridgerton, played by Phoebe Dynevor, and Simon Bassett, played by Regé-Jean Page, it was revealed that Nicola was the voice behind gossip writer Lady Whistledown.

And Kim was just as shocked as the millions of fans of the show after it was announced last month that the steamy Duke would not be returning for the second series.

Producers announced that the popular period drama was renewed for season two in January and has successfully commissioned for a further two series.
