"I'm slightly surprised they've decided to commission series three and four, because series two will be without the main star.

"The man that got all the press and publicity, the Duke of Hastings! He's gone off to do who knows what, James Bond?"

It was then when Dermot stepped in to say: "That's Regé-Jean Page. I have to confess here, my wife worked on it, she was second unit director.

"So the way it works is Julia Quinn is the author, there are many books about the Bridgeton series, and each series will be about a central character per book.

"So the first book was The Duke and I so was about the Duke and Duchess, the next one is about the Viscount who is lovely, Anthony, who is played by the brilliant Jonathan Bailey."

The announcement of the new seasons of the Netflix hit, which stars Phoebe Dynevor, was made by the show's official Twitter page on Tuesday.
