The Ton is abuzz with excitement as viewers made a return to the gossip-filled high society world of Bridgerton, as season 3 is launching on Netflix.

In the first two seasons, the Regency-era period drama focused on the passionate romances between Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon Basset (Regé-Jean Page), followed by her older brother Anthony Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley).

Now, the third outing will finally place Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) under the spotlight, as her long-time friendship with Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) develops into something entirely new.

While viewers will be glued to their screens as they watch Penelope and Luke gradually realise that there’s a reason why they’re always drawn to one another, let’s remind ourselves of all of the siblings in the Bridgerton clan, and approximately how old they were at the end of season two.

Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) age: 31

In season two, all eyes were on Anthony as the eldest child’s love story with Kate Sharma gained the spotlight.

Based on the second book in Julia Quinn’s collection of novels, The Viscount Who Loved Me, Anthony saw go in search of a wife.

Fans may recall, in season one his storyline was rather different – in the first few minutes of the opening episode, Anthony is seen butt-naked having sex against a tree with his lover, Siena Rosso (Sabrina Bartlett).

In season two, he managed to have a soaked-shirt Mr Darcy moment as his romance with Kate unfolded.

Benedict (Luke Thompson) age: 28

Second in line is Benedict, whose storyline is revealed in the third book of the author Julia Quinn’s collection, An Offer from a Gentleman.

However, fans are pretty keen for the show to deviate from the book, as Benedict has been interpreted by many to be gay or bisexual (although the character is never seen in an embrace, instead enjoying life at debaucherous parties filled with sex in season one).

Colin (Luke Newton) age: 24

In season one, Colin was engaged to Marina Thompson (Ruby Barker), before a pregnancy scandal occurred so it was all broken off.

However, love’s not lost for Colin as fans of the book may recall book four, Romancing Mister Bridgerton, explores the sparks between Colin and Penelope, who has had to hide her love for him behind a friendship.

That very storyline is explored in season three, and fans can’t wait to see how it’s going to play out in live-action.

Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) age: 22

Season one was all about Daphne’s debut in society, and the love and lust for her husband The Duke.

While Daphne returned to reprise her role for season two, hearts were broken as fans bid farewell …read more
