Sarah, 61, has now revealed her own personal connection to the show, and hinted it could carry on for another five seasons.

She told Us Weekly magazine: “I adored Bridgerton so much that I watched it twice, deliberately. I’m obsessed with it.

“I think Daphne is a terrific character, as we see her learning about life. I love the way she learns to use her strong voice.

“It chimed with me because now is the time for women to speak up.
