Who isn't obsessed with Bridgerton and The Crown? The Netflix hits are facing some drama of their own over filming locations as both shows require the same stately homes.

A source told The Sun about the calendar clash between the 18th century Somerley Estate in Hampshire and Wilton House in Wiltshire: “Given these two feature similar backdrops, it was only time before they ended up treading on the other’s toes.

“It’s down to production companies when they film.

"But Netflix will be keen everything is sorted as the last thing anyone needs are more delays.

“There are only so many stately homes that work for filming. It’s a real headache.”

Our Steve Denyer can't get enough of Netflix. He said about being glued to the box recently: "During lockdown I’ve been on a one man mission to binge the whole of Netflix!”

And we're right behind him.

Listen to Steve Denyer, weekdays from 7pm-10pm on Virgin Radio UK.
