"It's definitely going to take a break, bit of a breather"

Sorry Victoria fans, you may find this distressing. Victoria's leading lady, Jenna Coleman has confirmed that the show may be taking a hiatus.

While the ITV show is only in its third series, historical events in Victoria's life mean there is the potential for the storyline to run on for much longer.

"We don't know yet," she told Graham Norton's Radio 2 show.

"It's definitely going to take a break, bit of a breather and then we're working out… there's a lot of conversations, do you start at the Crimean War, or do you start later?

"I mean there's too much story, unless I literally did commit until I am 63."

She also went on talk about how her appearance may not match that of Queen Victoria realistically.

"That's another option as well," she said.

"I've currently got seven children in the show, so there's definitely a point where it becomes not realistic anymore. I've just caught up with her age and my age.

"We're beginning 'jowl conversations'. We either jump cut or we need to get those jowls in the grain."

Jenna has previously spoken out about passionate she can get filming Victoria scenes.

“Particularly in period dramas, some of it can be quite reserved at times so to have that different rhythm is helpful for the story and you just kind of dive in – and if it means you get a hairbrush thrown at you, then that’s what happens," she quipped.
