Devastated Kate Nash claims she's been 'punched in the heart' as she breaks silence on shock Glow axe

KATE Nash has admitted she is devastated following the news that Netflix series Glow has been cancelled.

Kate, 33, took to Twitter on Tuesday to express her sadness after Netflix confirmed the female wrestling show would be no more.

Posting a comical picture of herself crying, the London-born singer wrote alongside it: "Glow is cancelled due to Covid cuts. 20f**kin20 punch to the heart 10 times," followed by a broken heart emoji.

"We had scripts, we had costumes, we had stages," Kate added.

The Foundations hitmaker played the role of Rhonda 'Britannica' Richardson on the popular show – which first dropped on Netflix in June 2017.

Glow is a fictionalised version of the real-life Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling promotion in the 1980s and a fourth and final season of the hit comedy-drama had already been commissioned.

Fans were just as gutted by the news, with many replying to Kate's tweet.

"so sorry Kate – it was such a good watch," one person wrote, while another added: "I am so sad, GLOW is amazing and I really was looking forward for the next season."

A third person replied: "I'm so sorry for you and the cast and crew but also for those of us who fell in love with the show and the legacy of women's wrestling that was partially created with the real GLOW."

Series creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch said in a statement to Deadline: "Covid has killed actual humans. It’s a national tragedy and should be our focus.

"Covid also apparently took down our show. Netflix has decided not to finish filming the final season of GLOW.

"We were handed the creative freedom to make a complicated comedy about women and tell their stories. And wrestle. And now that’s gone.

"There’s a lot of s**tty things happening in the world that are much bigger than this right now. But it still sucks that we don’t get to see these 15 women in a frame together again."

They continued: "We'll miss our cast of weirdo clowns and our heroic crew. It was the best job."

Netflix added: "We’ve made the difficult decision not to do a fourth season of GLOW due to Covid, which makes shooting this physically intimate show with its large ensemble cast especially challenging.

"We are so grateful to creators Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, Jenji Kohan and all the writers, cast and crew for sharing this story about the incredible women of GLOW with us and the world."

They continued: "It is said that the fourth series had already got one episode in the bag after filming for around three weeks prior to lockdown in March."
