Speaking to Collider this weekend, he said: ‘This being a family of eight children and there being eight books, I would love to be able to focus and really tell stories and love stories for all the Bridgerton siblings. For each character, for sure. I would love that.’

He explained that season one was ‘primarily about Daphne and her love story with Simon’ but that there is much more to delve into.

The show is based on Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton novels – the second one called The Viscount Who Loved Me.

Book two follows Daphne Bridgerton’s elder brother Anthony, who is on the hunt for a wife.
