Daphne Bridgerton and Simon Basset’s love story, portrayed by Phoebe Dynevor and Regé-Jean Page, was the core theme to season one – fans couldn’t get enough of the saucy scenes between the Duke and Duchess.

The next batch of episodes will be dedicated to the character of Anthony Bridgerton – portrayed by the aforementioned Jonathan – and newcomer Kate Sharma, played by Simone Ashley.

An industry insider told the tabloids: “Devotees who loved the racy show’s first helping were probably hoping the follow-up would contain more sex, not less.”

Last week, Jonathan Bailey spoke about the bizarre prop used during intimate moments of the show – sparking speculation that the saucy nature of the show was to continue, however now it's being reported that the sex scenes may be limited.

The source continued: “Most of the bedroom scenes were previously supplied by Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne Bridgerton and Regé-Jean Page as her husband, the Duke of Hastings. But he doesn’t appear in series two and she is more of a background character.

The publication was told that scenes between the new central lovebirds of the show "never progresses beyond flirtation and a nearly kiss" – dashing fan dreams in the process.

The new season of Bridgerton will arrive on the streaming platform on Friday, so we'll let you be the judge!
