These reactions to the hot priest in Fleabag are why we’re all going to hell
I’m a sinner and I don’t even care
Last night saw the end of Fleabag. It's been named as the most electrifying, devastating TV in years, and something all girls should be watching – but it hasn't been renewed for a third series. So that's it, the finale. But one thing that will never leave me is the priest in Fleabag. He is so hot it's a sin, and it seems like the whole world has fallen for him, understandably.
The priest, played by Andrew Scott, has been nicknamed online as "The Hot Priest" and it's not difficult to see why. There are actual, scientific theories as to why we fancy members of the Catholic church. They are the ultimate forbidden fruit. Grazia reported last week, Google searches for ‘can priests get married?’ spiked 170% following the a Fleabag episode. Priests can't get married, so just the challenge of getting with one gets people going, and that's without the connotations of someone being known as "Father". He says in the BBC Three drama himself: "Fuck you calling me Father like it doesn't turn you on just to say it."
These 14 reactions to the priest in Fleabag are so unholy, they're sending us all to hell. According to the actual Bible, 14 is the number of spiritual perfection. So 14 reactions to this fit, heavenly, stereotype defying angel of a man must be fate.

galaxy brain: the sexy priest in fleabag is hot AND bad
universe brain: God is canonically real in the Fleabag universe

6. We don't care if appreciating him is weird. When I die, put this on my grave stone:
The priest’s love speech was so bang-on, I typed it out. I’m so blown away by its beauty, I don’t even care that that’s a weird thing to do. I might even print it out and put it in a frame. One that’s got ‘Live, Laugh, Love’ on it. Don’t give a shit. #Fleabag made me do it. pic.twitter.com/Ccckmzlzni

7. THE PRIEST IN FLEABAG IS AN IMPORTANT DISCUSSION TO HAVE
What on Earth is there left to say in another PM's statement? "Today I met with Her Majesty the Queen, and we agreed we both really fancy the priest in Fleabag…" pic.twitter.com/0NhPiMEbPt

8. The priest x fit model dad meme cross over is so wrong, but so right
My dad is 42, pursuing a modeling career, and I’ve never seen him happier. He told me he’s just waiting for a chance to blow up. So, Twitter, meet my dad.#fleabag #fleabagpriest #priest pic.twitter.com/M6SHN3iA8S

I suppose he is a Father???? Twitter meet my dad is a beautiful meme concept, and so is he.
9. FUCK BREXIT IT'S ALL ABOUT HOT PRIESTS NOW
Fleabag > Brexit. (Seriously if the hot priest can change his principles so can MPs)

10. We can't have him, but in our minds we do x
Pretty sure at least 75% of the female population currently feel like they are in a blossoming relationship with a priest. #fleabag

13. If the hot priest drinks G&Ts, I drink G&Ts
14. OK THAT'S ENOUGH NOW
Speaking of #Fleabag, I don’t know who it was who said that Andrew Scott is a man who looks like both Ant and Dec at the same time, but you can’t ever unsee something like that. pic.twitter.com/3GQVeFv1y8
