Amanda Holden makes bid for Bridgerton role as she reaches out to Netflix bosses with cheeky message | The SunSeptember 12, 2023
AMANDA Holden has called on Netflix bosses to let her join the romance drama Bridgerton with a rather cheeky message.
The actress, who explores the history of sex in her new series, Sex: A Bonkers History, revealed she "absolutely loves" the regency era.
Getting to live out her fantasy of being in a "bonnet drama", Amanda got the pleasure of dressing up as Queen Charlotte in one of the scenes in the Sky History show.
She claimed that she had so much fun playing the part that she got to keep the costume and wig.
So, it was no surprise when Amanda revealed that she would like a part in Bridgerton and she hopes the producer's are "watching her" in action.
Amanda told The Sun: "Because I've always wanted to be in a bonnet drama, I think I loved dressing up as Queen Charlotte, I just absolutely loved wearing the wig and dress."

Her gowns on Britain’s Got Talent have sparked hundreds of complaints over the years.
She said: “There had always been an amazing appreciation for the female form previously.
“The Victorians, I think, were to blame — in their eyes everything became more sexualised than it was meant to be.
“It’s crazy that when you think of the hoo-ha around some of my outfits now, we’re still there.
“It’s absolutely ridiculous that it’s still going on in an era when we really think that we are ahead of the game.
“But as I always say when we talk about Britain’s Got Talent, I’m 52 — if they want to still talk about my t*ts then bring it on!”
Amanda has just made the programme with historian Dan Jones for the Sky History channel, looking at everything from empresses who loved orgies to warring queens who used their bodies as weapons.
It's a fun and engaging way of teaching people about the history of sex.
