The award winning star is currently featuring in the third series of This Country which is due to air its final ever episode on Monday.

In 2018, Cooper, 34, picked up a Bafta for Best Female Comedy performance her role in the sitcom.

She and her co-writer, co-star and brother Charlie Cooper also won a gong for Best Scripted Comedy in the same year.

Cooper married her partner in a ceremony last September, paying tribute to late friend Michael Sleggs the day before the nuptials.

Sleggs, who appeared as Slugs in the BBC programme, died at the age of 33 in July following a battle with cancer.

In honour of her long-time pal, Cooper posted a series of photos of the actor to Instagram with the message: “It’s me wedding tomorrow and this one was going to be one of my bridesmaids in a white suit.

“I miss you so much and I will miss you so bloody much tomorrow. Thank the lord for slugs x.”

The first episode of the third and final season, A Letter from Slugs, paid tribute to the actor.
