Fleabag stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Andrew Scott have sent fans crazy with an Eras Tour reunion.

The two world-renowned actors, friends, and former colleagues - known for their performances in Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag as the eponymous lead character and so-called ‘hot priest’, respectively - partied the night away at the third night of Taylor Swift’s London-based shows.

Joining stars including Sir Paul McCartney and Swift’s boyfriend Travis Kelce in the show’s VIP seating area, the pair were seen having a great time dancing and catching up at the ‘...Ready For It?’ singer’s show.

Plus, in one hilarious video from the evening, Waller-Bridge and Scott can be seen relatably sprinting back to the VIP tent as they realise one of Swift’s most beloved hits, 1989’s ‘Style’, was about to be performed.

After starring in Fleabag together in 2019, Scott and Waller-Bridge have remained firm friends and regularly supported each other and hung out at events together. At 2023’s GQ Men of the Year awards, Waller-Bridge referred to Scott as “the greatest actor of our time” while honouring him with one of the night’s awards.

Recently, the All of Us Strangers star jokingly told fans who are still not over his and Waller-Bridge’s characters’ melancholic ending in season two of the show to “do something better” with their lives and “go out and get some fresh air.”

“Stop watching. Stop crying. Stop crying in your room with your curtains closed. Do something better with your life,” he told Entertainment Weekly, but the comment was a witty one rather than biting or mean, and arguably good advice as the pair remain adamant there will be no series three and/or a resolution for the characters in the future.

Most recently, Waller-Bridge starred in John Krasinski’s IF and Scott starred in Netflix’s Ripley, on which he was also a producer.

Next up for the Indiana Jones star is a role in the drama film A Big Bold Beautiful Journey alongside Margot Robbie and Colin Farrell. Meanwhile the former Sherlock actor's next film is the 2024 comedy, Back in Action.
