Nicola Coughlan has spoken out against people commenting on her body

In many ways, Nicola Coughlan is just like us. She gets star-struck while chatting with A-listers, even if they do eventually become her best friends. She loves a bit of style, even if it is often bespoke haute couture. And like most 35-year-olds, she likes to post the odd gym selfie.

If I ever get up to exercise before work, I do feel like I deserve a special medal and that is just the truth,” Coughlan posted on Instagram earlier this week. That’s a hard relate from all of us. So far so simple, except that the Galwegian has become a fresh target for tabloid and social media commentary. Some headlines have noted how her ‘incredible transformation’ or ‘newly slimline figure’ has ‘stunned fans’. In order to hammer home that ‘transformation’ bit, several outlets have run before and after pictures, comparing Coughlan’s ‘new’ figure to her older self.
