If there's one thing Bridgerton didn't shy away from, it's those sex scenes between the Duke and Duchess of Hastings.

Things got so intense fans started speculating Regé-Jean Page and Phoebe Dynevor must be dating (but more on that here), and Phoebe admits she had to watch it with her grandparents, if only to fast-forward through those particular scenes.

"I had to stand there with the remote ready at any given point to fast-forward for them not to see any of the things I didn't want them to see," she said on The Drew Barrymore Show on Friday.

"That's very responsible of you, what a good grandkid," Regé commented.

For Regé, who plays Simon to Phoebe's Daphne, he let his family know when the steamy scenes were coming up in their family WhatsApp group, making use of "little red flashing light emojis" and "the occasional peach emoji".

His one cousin admitted to him she'd disappear to go make tea though during those scenes. "But the problem with this show is that she came back and she was like, 'And you guys were still going. How many cups of tea do I need to make?'" Regé recalled.
