Simone Ashley spilt the tea on the Bridgerton red carpet about how she settled into the 'family' on-set of the hit Netflix drama.
The premiere for the steamy drama took place this week at the Tate Modern in London which saw its talented ensemble cast take to the red carpet all dressed to the nines.
Series two focuses on Anthony Bridgerton's love story with Kate Sharma, portrayed by Simone, a departure from season one which was led by Phoebe and Regé-Jean Page as the Duke and Duchess.

The Sex Education actress looked a vision at the event on Tuesday (March 22) donning a Gucci ensemble made up of a ruffled white bodice adorned with tulle, complete with lace sleeves and black tiered train.
When quizzed on her relationship with Bridgerton's former leading lady, Simone had nothing but words of adoration for Phoebe.
The 26-year-old star was asked if Dynevor had any tips for her as she stepped into the central role of the show, she answered: "Yeah, I mean, she’s all up for female empowerment and being a good friend – especially to your castmates."
Simone continued to talk about the close-knit group the cast had formed on-set, professing: “We’re kinda like family."
"So yeah, shoutout to Pheebs, love you so much," the Bridgerton star quipped.
She gushed over the series, revealing that she was working on the project for nearly a whole year!
"Last year I got to spend, like what, eleven months with these incredible people bringing this amazing story to life. So it will forever be such a great memory in my heart and I’m excited to share it with the world," the star said.
The steamy show first set hearts racing with its steamy regency antics back in late-2020, now, over a year later fans are gearing up to a new season and a new messy love story to unravel.
