Bridgerton star Claudia Jessie joined Rebecca and Brendan on 98FM's Big Breakfast this week.

The period drama is now the most-watched original series on Netflix ever.

More than 82 million households viewed the show in its first 28 days of release.

Claudia plays Eloise Bridgerton in the series. She is the second eldest daughter after Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) and best friend to Penelope (Nicola Coughlan).

Claudia told 98FM she feels "very grateful" for Bridgerton's huge success.

She also chatted about what to expect from season 2, the name of the Bridgerton cast's WhatsApp group and the possibility of returning to Line of Duty.

Bridgerton Season 2

Netflix has confirmed that season 2 of Bridgerton will see Lord Anthony Bridgerton dominate the social season.

Lady Whistledown says she will, of course, have her pen ready to report any and all of his romantic activities.

We'll also see Claudia's character Eloise make her debut into society.

"I genuinely know nothing but I can only imagine what it's going to be like when Eloise hits that marriage mark. She's going to shake things up for sure.

"We see Eloise, in the final episode, thank her sister Daphne for being so perfect so she doesn't have to be. I'm hoping that's what we're going to see", Claudia added.

Claudia told 98FM what it was like working with Nicola Coughlan and the injury Nicola inflicted on her on set.

"She fully stabbed me in the hand. It was our first day actually and poor Nicola has fallen over three times.

"On the third one she was holding a parasol thing and she fell forward and I tried to catch her but then the silver bit on the parasol went straight into my hand.

"I was bleeding into this white glove. We almost made this sort of blood oath on our first day so that's probably why we're so close", Claudia joked.

Bridgerton WhatsApp Group

Claudia revealed the Bridgerton cast keep in touch via a WhatsApp group.

Claudia describes herself as the "resident recluse" of the group so she's not too good with social media but they send her screengrabs to keep her up to date on the things they think she should see.

Rebecca and Brendan suspected the group may have a fun name like 'Ride and Prejudice', but Claudia says the group name is something boring like 'Bridgerton'. Claudia then joked that it should be called 'Bonkington'.

Line Of Duty

Claudia told 98FM’s Big Breakfast that she “would love to” return to Line of Duty.

The actress, who played Detective Constable Jodie Taylor in season four of the hit BBC police drama described her character as “the most annoying person in the world”.

Fans of the TV show, which is about to return for a sixth season, suspect Claudia’s character could re-appear in the new episodes.

Speaking to Rebecca and Brendan, Claudia said “I would love to… even if I was… that is one of the most tight-lipped shows in the world”.

“I remember seeing an article, my friend sent it to me, it was titled Why Jodie Taylor is Just The Worst”.

When asked if she’s looking forward to season six she said of the cast and crew “They’re such a wonderful bunch, such a great bunch of people so of course, support them to the end”.
