ABOUT

STELLA GETS HER WINGS is the brainchild of Bella, Emilia and Hannah born after a waiter told them that they were being greedy, had ordered too many chicken wings and wouldn't be able to finish them all.

In defiance they bloody well ordered their chicken wings, hit up happy hour and managed to dream up this web series along the way. 

And yes, the waiter was right they couldn't finish them. But in their defence, they only left three wings.

BELLA YOUNGER

Stella / Co-Writer

In 2015, Bella decided to quit her job and try her hand at stand up comedy. She applied for a spot at the Edinburgh Fringe, was booked every night for a month and immediately started panicking. You see at that point, Bella had only ever performed for 5 minutes. She doesn't do things by halves. 

She created the character, Deliciously Stella to try and convince people she was funny before she started the run. Little did she know what Stella would become. 

Deliciously Stella became a viral Instagram sensation, boasting over 140,000 followers, bagging her a book deal, a podcast and a sold out live show at her second Edinburgh Festival. 

The character has reached international acclaim, seeing Bella appear everywhere from the cover of The Times to being the top trending topic worldwide on Buzzfeed, being viewed over 1 million times.

Since debuting at The Edinburgh Festival in 2015, she’s been named as one of Glamour magazine’s top 8 female comedians and as one of the Evening Standard’s most influential Londoners –  twice. Bella has written and starred in a number of projects including a BBC3 sketch as, Deliciously Stella. 

Just don’t ask her if she ‘eats clean.’
