Even Ryan Seacrest and Giuliana Rancic bow down at the altar of the Hot Priest.

On Sunday, during Golden Globes red carpet coverage on E!, Rancic, 45, checked in with first-time nominee Andrew Scott of Fleabag. A self-proclaimed fan of the series, Rancic gushed over the show, as well as Scott’s viral character.

“The reaction… it’s insane,” said Scott, 43, of the internet’s response to his character, a man of the cloth who becomes an unlikely love interest for creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge‘s main character.

He continued: “We made a little show and you always want it to be seen, but just the fact that the internet has taken the character and the show to its hearts, it’s amazing. It’s incredible.”

Midway through the red carpet interview, Seacrest, 45, cut in to prevent any spoilers from making the airwaves, telling Scott he’s still watching the second season.

Following Seacrest’s praise for Scott and Fleabag as a whole, the actor, who’s nominated for supporting actor, teased an upcoming project with Waller-Bridge, 34, who’s recognized in the best actress in a comedy category.

“We’re definitely going to do something, all will be revealed,” Scott teased, remaining tight-lipped on details. “We have great chemistry and we want to do as much as we can together.”

Scott’s work goes beyond just the canned gin and tonic–loving Hot Priest. He has appeared in TV shows like Sherlock and His Dark Materials, had a small role in the Golden Globe-nominated 1917 and is currently filming Ripley, a series on Showtime based on The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Fleabag is now available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.

The 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony is airing live on NBC from the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on Sunday, Jan. 5.
