Trending in Ireland throughout Christmas, Bridgerton was a festive binge this year and one we seemed to all totally love. From the costumes to the music *Wild Dreams, need I say anymore*, to Duke’s spoon, the show had us captivated, in love and in need of more.

And more looks set to come with talks that we could have a total of eight seasons based on the eight Bridgerton books by Julia Quinn that follow the eight Bridgerton children.

Did I say eight enough?

So yeah, it’s all very exciting, but in the interim, we’re researching and hunting as much as we possibly can about our favourite stars of the hit Netflix show.

7. No, she’s not dating the Duke IRL

The pair shut down any rumours of an off-screen romance during a joint interview for Access, with Page politely saying:

“I think everything you need to know is on camera. That’s why we presented it so beautifully for you. All the sparks that flew off of the beautiful scripts that we were handed, and so I think that the sparky scripted material are more than enough.”

Well, there you go.
