Bridgerton's Phoebe Dynevor reveals she skipped her sex scenes when watching with her mum Coronation Street's Sally

CORONATION Street's Sally Dynevor had to skip over her daughter Phoebe's sexy scenes in Bridgerton.

While the Corrie legend was very proud of her daughter, she struggled to watch the raunchy romps, especially because the pair sat down to watch the hit Netflix series together.

Sally who plays Sally Webster on Corrie and was recently made an MBE watched the period drama meets Gossip Girl alongside Phoebe, 25.

Phoebe plays socialite and 'top catch' of the aristocracy's marriage season in Bridgerton and is the star of many of the series' hottest sex scenes.

She revealed she had to have full control of the remote when watching the show with her mum.

“I had to sit there and fast forward on high alert with the remote control. We managed it just about,” Phoebe told The Daily Star.

Bridgerton has propelled Phoebe to superstardom after the show dropped late last year on Netflix and remains one of the most watched series in that time with more than 70 million households tuning in.

But Sally's not the only mum of one of the stars to struggle watching their kids getting sexy on their TV screens.

It turns out Rege-Jean Page who plays the dashing Duke Simon Bassethas revealed his mortified family's reaction to his steamy Netflix sex scenes after failing to warn them.

The 31-year-old actor in the Netflix period drama – which could run for up to eight seasons – and is seen engaging in numerous romps with his on-screen lover, Phoebe's Daphne.

Rege-Jean – who is currently living in the US – has revealed that not all of his family back in London got the memo about the raunchy nature of his role, and so got a big shock when they tuned in.

He told chat show host Jimmy Fallon that some relatives didn't get the message he sent to the family Whatsapp group to warn them.

He said: "We missed one of my cousins. She sent me a message that was like, 'I had to make so many tactical cups of tea during the show.'

"She said, 'I came back, and you were still going, so I had to go back and put the kettle back on'."

He added with a laugh: "So my family are very stimulated and caffeinated at this point, which sounds like a deadly combination."

While the sexy romps can be hard for their family to watch, Phoebe revealed they were very carefully choreographed.

Phoebe hailed the intimacy coordinator who ensured the romps were both safe and enjoyable for everyone involved.

She told Grazia Magazine: "My first-ever scene was in episode six, where Simon is going down on Daphne.

“And it was so great, because it felt safe and fun: you choreograph it like a stunt, or a dance. It’s crazy to me that that hasn’t been there in the past."

The Netflix star compared her romps on Bridgerton to those she has done previously and reckons they would be banned in the industry today.

She explained: "I’ve done sex scenes before that I can’t believe I did: it was only five or six years ago, but it would not be allowed now.”

Bridgerton is available on Netflix.
