Bridgerton co-stars Phoebe Dyvenor and Rege-Jean Page awkwardly swerve romance question after off-screen dating rumours

BRIDGERTON co-stars Phoebe Dyvenor and Rege-Jean Page managed to swerve the awkward romance question after dating rumours.

The pair share sizzling chemistry on the Netflix period drama, which has amassed over 65 million views on the giant streaming platform.

Due to the pair's intimate relationship on screen, there would be a natural curiosity as to whether it translates to their off-screen relationship.

In a joint interview with Access TV, Rege, 31, put any speculation that the pair were romantically linked to rest, while Phoebe, 25, stayed silent and looked on with a smile.

He explained: "I think that everything you need to know is on camera. All the sparks that flew came off the beautiful scripts we were handed.

"So I think that the sparky words, scripts and material are more than enough."

Interviewer Kit Hoover joked the pair were actually in the same room together, despite being in two different places.

Rege continued the banter as he witty response was: "We're playing footsie under here."

In another interview with Jimmy Fallon, Rege revealed that some relatives didn't get the message he sent to the family WhatsApp group to warn them about his steamy Netflix sex scenes.

The former Waterloo Road star said: "We missed one of my cousins. She sent me a message that was like, 'I had to make so many tactical cups of tea during the show.'

"She said, 'I came back, and you were still going, so I had to go back and put the kettle back on.'"

The hunky actor also addressed reports he's in line to become the next James Bond, after his odds were slashed from 40/1 before Christmas to 5/1 by Ladbrokes thanks to the success of Bridgerton.

He said: "I think the internet thinks a lot of things, and that's one of the more pleasant ones. So I'm pleased as far as that goes.

"If you're a Brit and you do something of any kind of renown that people regard well, then people start saying the B word!"

He added he was "glad to be in such wonderful company" with actors including Tom Hardy, Idris Elba and Tom Hiddleston, who have also been linked to the 007 role.
