“We spent a lot of time together,” giggles Bailey, to which Ashley cheekily responds, “The best of friends!”

In the upcoming second series, Viscount Anthony Bridgerton’s love life comes under the spotlight, first vying for Edwina before beginning a passionate romance with Kate. The casting of Simone Ashley (of Sex Education fame) made waves upon announcement, with many praising the inclusion of an Indian-origin character, but raising doubts about needing to change the character’s name from Kate Sheffield to Kate Sharma.

Still, what can fans expect from the new season? What do the actresses describe as ‘the Sharma household dynamic’? Listen in to find out!
