Regé-Jean Page - who played the Duke of Hastings in Bridgerton - is reportedly in talks with Netflix to return.

In news that's singlehandedly made our entire year, the Duke of Hastings himself might be returning to Bridgerton.

The character - played by Regé-Jean Page - proved hugely popular with viewers in season one of the show, with even the spoon he used in the show getting its own Instagram fan page.

Sadly for fans of the Duke and his cutlery, it was later announced that Regé wouldn't be returning for season two, and it was thought he'd left the show for good.

A new report, however, has claimed that he's in talks with Netflix to return for season three.

"Rege-Jean was always very open about his intention to quit the show after the first season and to move on to other projects. But recently there has been a dialogue between him and the show’s bosses," a source told The Sun.

"Nothing has been formally agreed yet, but watch this space. Things are very up in the air at the moment, but this will be an exciting year for Rege, without a doubt."
