But Bridgerton viewers aren't the only ones who are apparently fans of the legendary Julie Andrews.

Regé-Jean Page who plays Simon in the series recently told us about the moment he found out he was going to be part of the same show as Julie...

"I found out when I was on a train and I yelped. It was a literal yelp," he revealed.

"The entire carriage turned around. I was in my gym gear because I had come from a boxing training session for the show and I was attempting to look very masculine and yet, I yelped.

That’s how I found out that Julie Andrews was doing it. I was very pleased."

Phoebe Dynevor, who plays Daphne also told us about how much she loves Julie: "I grew up with The Princess Diaries, and obviously Mary Poppins, and so it was incredible to be part of the same show.

"I’m such a fan."
