Phoebe Dyvenor has revealed that she fast-forwarded through the racy sex scenes on Netflix show Bridgerton when watching it with her family.

Speaking of her mum's reaction to her performance, Phoebe said: “She is very proud and excited. I watched the show with the whole family, even the grandparents managed to watch it.
