Anderson had a strong reply to the rumours, writing that they were “absolute boll***s” on Twitter.

She quote tweeted a post by the UK newspaper Metro that read: “It's been reported that The Crown producers have been ‘forced to rewrite their scripts’ after claims Gillian Anderson ‘refused’ to reprise her role as Margaret Thatcher for the sixth and final season of the hit Netflix show.”

Her robust response received over 35,000 likes and people complimented her on her very British response.
