The period drama, which is based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling novels, follows the romance between Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe) and Simon Basset (Rege), however there are seven more books following other siblings in the powerful family.

Following its success, the show has been tipped to become next Downton Abbey with a second series on the cards.

An insider told The Sun: ‘With so much material to work with there’s every chance it could develop into multiple series.

‘And it’s fair to say it has an added edge that Downton didn’t have.’

They added that the show has been such a ‘hit’ that the cast, who were not widely known before it aired, will be able to ask for ‘bumper pay rises’ in series two.

The show’s creator Chris Van Dusen previously told Cosmopolitan that he’d love to make more episodes of the show. 

He told the publication: ‘There are eight Bridgerton siblings [and] there are eight Bridgerton books. So in success I would love to be able to explore love stories and romances for all the Bridgerton brothers and sisters, of course.’

Phoebe also previously chatted about the show’s racy content as she explained how the ‘first-ever scene’ she shot for the series was with co-star Rege.

Speaking to Grazia, she said: ‘My first-ever scene was in episode six, where Simon is going down on Daphne.

‘And it was so great, because it felt safe and fun: you choreograph it like a stunt, or a dance. It’s crazy to me that [an intimacy coordinator] hasn’t been there in the past.’

She added: ‘I love her [Daphne’s] coming-of-age story and her sexual awakening. I love seeing them female gaze and watching her figure it out for herself. She’s a late bloomer, but it’s not like she can google it.’
