Kaley Cuoco's career has gone from strength to strength since The Big Bang Theory ended, and it looks like her former co-stars are thrilled for her.

Kaley, who hit the big time with her role as Penny in the sitcom, is currently basking in the glow of an Emmy nomination, after she was announced as a contender for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

As well as bagging a nomination for her part as Cassie Bowden in The Flight Attendant, Kaley – who executive produced the dramedy – is also celebrating the series' eight other nominations.
