FANS of Bridgerton are in for a shock – there’s hardly any sex in the new series of the high-society drama.
The debut season of Regency-era Netflix bonkbusters was packed with hot action.
But the sequel, which will air on Friday, has few intimate moments – despite trailers teasing the passion between lead stars Jonathan Bailey, 33, and Simone Ashley, 26.
In one clip, Jonathan emerges from a lake in a wet shirt – like Colin Firth’s Mr Darcy in the 1995 TV series Pride and Prejudice.
A TV insider said: “Followers who loved the first installment of the racy show were probably hoping the sequel would feature more sex, not less.
“Most of the bedroom scenes were previously provided by Phoebe Dynevor as Daphne Bridgerton and Rege-Jean Page as her husband, the Duke of Hastings.
“But he doesn’t appear in the second series and she’s more of a background character.
“Now the whole romance revolves around Anthony Bridgerton, played by Jonathan, and new character Kate Sharma, played by Simone.
“But their lust never goes beyond a flirt and a near-kiss.”
In the first series, Jonathan had his buttocks bared within three minutes of the first episode while having sex with Siena Rosso, played by Sabrina Bartlett, against a tree.
