People Are Comparing Netflix's 'Saucy' Bridgerton To A 19th Century Gossip Girl

People Are Comparing Netflix's 'Saucy' Bridgerton To A 19th Century Gossip Girl

Ever since Netflix's latest show, Bridgerton dropped on Christmas Day, viewers have been comparing it to a "period drama meets Gossip Girl" - and a saucy one at that!

Fans have been taking to social media over the last few days to gush about the scandalous series, which follows Daphne Bridgerton (played by Phoebe Dynevor) as she navigates the 'marriage market' of 1813.

Daphne is the eldest daughter of the Bridgerton family, and faces pressure to follow in her parent's footsteps by finding a true love match.

But as her older brother rules out each and every one of her potential suitors, the mysterious Lady Whistledown (Julie Andrews) - who narrates the dramas around London's high society in a Gossip Girl style 'scandal sheet' - begins to cast aspersions on Daphne.

So, after meeting Simon, Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page) - a committed bachelor - the pair strike a mutually beneficial deal to pretend to be engaged. But things take a (very) steamy turn when sparks fly between the pair (side note, probably best not to watch with your parents over the Christmas period).

And viewers of the show are obsessed, with many comparing the series to GG, with one tweeting: "Bridgerton is just a regency era gossip girl."

While another said: "Watching Bridgerton and it's literally period drama gossip girl" and one added: "@JulieAndrews is really like a regency Gossip Girl in Bridgerton and wow am I obsessed with it."
