People are mindblown after realising where they've previously seen Bridgerton's Jonathan Bailey - who plays the viscount, Anthony Bridgerton.

How did we never realise this before?

You can watch a clip below:


Since the show aired, many viewers have realised that they recognise Anthony from a previous show. Yep, actor Jonathan Bailey was also in Chewing Gum starring Michaela Coel.

Ever since Season 2 of the steamy Regency drama dropped on Netflix last week, people have been discussing the new plot, which centres around Anthony on his quest to find a wife - the next Viscountess Bridgerton.

After deciding he will marry for duty, and not love, Anthony sets his sights on the season's diamond, Edwina Sharma, but he soon finds himself irresistibly drawn to her older sister Kate, despite the pair passionately disliking one another.

Soon, hatred turns to desire and viewers watch as the pair fight their longing for each other over a number of episodes until they can no longer resist.

People were shocked when they remembered where they recognised Jonathan from, with one person writing: "Oh my goodness…. is the guy from Bridgerton that boy in Chewing Gum????????"

While another said: "WAIT HOLD ON the fetish man from Chewing Gum is the Bridgerton guy omg!?!"

And a third added: "Ever since I realized that Anthony #Bridgerton also played this guy from Chewing Gum, I have a really hard time unseeing it and I hate myself for it."

It's not the only detail fans have noticed about Anthony, either. Did you spot what's changed since he last appeared in Season 1?

Many fans admitted to 'thirsting' after the viscount in Season 2, despite his presence in the first season not quite having the same effect.

Did you spot it? Yep, Anthony's sideburns are notably absent during the second season - and people are pretty happy about it.

One person wrote: "Anthony Bridgerton got rid of the side burns this season. I can shamelessly thirst after him now."

You can catch Bridgerton on Netflix now.
