Nicola Coughlan shares saucy details of Bridgerton season three


Season three of Bridgerton is en route and we couldn’t be more excited.

It’s all we’ve been thinking about in fact since the first look pictures dropped this month.

Of course, this season our very own Nicola Coughlan will be leading the saucy series this time around.

And she has revealed some very exciting behind-the-scenes secrets that would have Lady Whistledown herself blush.


She revealed what exactly it’s like to kiss the handsome Mr Colin Bridgerton who just so happens to be her real-life best friend.

Nicola, who plays Penelope Featherington, admitted to being “terrified” filming the steamier scenes with Luke Newton aka Colin Bridgerton, her character’s love interest, due to their long-standing friendship.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight during last weekend’s Tudum: A Netflix Global Fan Event in Brazil Nicola said: “Luke and I read the books at the beginning of season 1, and it was funny to us. We were like, ‘Imagine if we have to kiss and do this’.”

Continuing she said: “And then season three comes on and we were like, ‘Oh God,’ and then it’s like, ‘it’s my friend. I have to kiss my friend’.”

The Derry Girls actress also revealed that fans can 100 per cent expect to see their favourite spicy scenes from the books translated to the screen – with one even causing a few giggles between herself and Luke.

The 36-year-old explained: “You can’t pretend to kiss someone, you have to really kiss them. It’s a spicy one. It’s a lot of the stuff from the books that the fans expect has made it into the show.”

“Oh my God, there was one day where we had to sort of do like a very romantic, beautifully written romantic scene. And we were just like peeing ourselves with laughter, ’cause you just have to, like, look into each other’s eyes and we were like, ‘Oh God,’.”

An official release date has not yet been announced for Bridgerton season three, but the first two seasons are ready for a rewatch.
