Speaking to Wonderland magazine, she said: ‘With Bridgerton, it’s much more intense than Sex Education in the sense that if I’m not filming, I’m horse riding, training or in rehearsals. 

‘I’m in accent training or I’m in a fitting… I’ve never really worn a corset before, so that took some getting used to.’ 

The Surrey-born star also mentioned that the tight undergarment has changed her body a little bit, including her posture.
