Who does Francesca Bridgerton end up with?

After her first husband John Stirling dies unexpectedly, Francesca eventually ends up finding solace with Michael Stirling and the pair marry, making it her second marriage.

This season sees Hannah Dodd, 28, step into the role of Francesca Bridgerton, after actress Ruby Stokes, 23, had to leave the show due to 'scheduling conflicts'.

Speaking about her new character Francesca, Hannah told Tudum: "There’s definitely an air of innocence about her.

"Debutantes are so young. Although they prepared for these moments for their entire lives, you can’t replicate a ball or suitors that you’ve never met before coming up to you. You don’t know how those conversations are going to go."

Hannah continued: "She’s not fighting it. She’s going to these balls. She is trying to find a husband.

"I think the difference is that she’s not excited about it. She’s not spent her entire life dreaming about what her wedding day will look like and what her husband’s going to be. She just knows it’s her time and this is part of life, and here we go."

Bridgerton is streaming on Netflix now.
