Bridgerton season 3 is on track to become the spiciest season yet if what we've seen so far is anything to go by... And Nicola Coughlan has doubled down on her claims that Polin's sex scenes are the show's best yet.

Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) take centre stage in the latest season of the Netflix series, and viewers will finally get to see how their iconic love story from the books plays out on screen.

While sitting down to promote her other new series Big Mood on This Morning, Nicola gave fans a little tease at what to expect with Colin and Penelope's romance. We've already seen THAT carriage scene... but it sounds like they've upped the ante again when it comes to what happens in part 2.

"It's so romantic this season, they've really upped their game," Nicola teased about Penelope and Colin in season 3. "I loved season 1 and 2 but when we got these scripts it was like, 'Oh, wow, OK."

When host Ben Shephard pointed out that season 2 upped the sauciness in terms of the show's sex scenes, Nicola boldly responded: "I think we've won the sauciness battle. I think so, I think we might have."

Bridgerton season 1 left viewers shocked with the amount of intimate moments between Daphne and Simon, but due to Anthony and Kate's enemies-to-lovers arc, there wasn't many sex scenes between the couple until the end of the season.

It looks like Penelope and Colin's season might end up rivalling both them in the spice department...

Luke Newton opens up about filming “intimate scene” with Nicola Coughlan on Bridgerton

Ahead of the release of season 3, Nicola and Luke teased and shared glimpses into what it was like filming Polin's most memorable romantic moments.

Speaking about their upcoming sex scenes, Luke and Nicola explained to AP Entertainment why they're so important for Penelope and Colin's relationship: "There's such vulnerability in those scenes and it's also a really important part of the story. Those scenes in this show are important – they're an important part of the narrative, they're not throw away. So they're not short scenes, they're important."

So far, viewers have only seen one of their intimate scenes – the carriage scene – but there's plenty more to come as Polin's relationship moves forward in the final four episodes of the season. How spicy will they get?!
