Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan showed off her body transformation in a sports bra and leggings as she worked up a sweat before work.
The actress, 35, took a picture of her figure in a black and white changing room selfie which she shared on Instagram.
She wrote: “If I ever get up to exercise before work I do feel like I deserve a medal and that is just the truth.”
Nicola, who plays Penelope Featherington in the hit Netflix period drama, recently revealed her character is the lead role in the upcoming third series, which will focus on her relationship with Colin Bridgerton.
Not every fan of the show was pleased though, with one particularly disgruntled viewer saying: “I’m late about this news but I heard the next instalment is about Penelope and Colin, that is ridiculous.
“But instead they made it about a minor fan. Good luck.”
Nicola shared the critical comment on her Instagram account and withheld the user’s name.
The 35-year-old explained that Bridgerton isn’t reality and she doesn’t share the same personality traits as Penelope.
Nicola said: “Some people get mad at me for things Penelope did but I really didn’t do them because it’s a script and I just say the words and do acting.
“Please be nice to me.
“I will never have any say over storylines, what order the stories go in, what’s on posters, who’s doing what in press – that’s way beyond my skill set.
“I’m there to do the acting and I don’t have a choice in most things.”
