The show has been praised for mixing up tired casting, featuring BAME cast members in prominent societal roles such as Regé-Jean as the Duke of Hastings, Golda Rosheuvel as Queen Charlotte, and Adjoa Andoh as Lady Danbury. 

In February, Jonathan promised the show’s second season will feature plenty of steamy sex scenes because they are ‘at the heart’ of the show in an interview with The Mirror.

Reflecting on the show, the actor, 32, said: ‘The thing that’s so at the heart of Bridgerton is intimacy and identity and sexuality – and so of course that’s something we’re going to have to make sure we continue with.

‘The amazing producers will work magic, I’m sure, to make sure we still get the steaminess that we all deserve.’
