Bridgerton’s Nicola Coughlan slams rumours that four NSFW scenes were axed from the show

More than 67,000 fans signed a petition urging Netflix to release the allegedly canned scenes.

Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan has rubbished rumours that four spicy sex scenes were axed from Season Three.

Given Coughlan and her co-lead Luke Newton seemed to imply that the latest instalment of the hit Regency series would be the sauciest yet, fans couldn’t help but feel a tad short-changed when it didn’t ring true.

As such, viewers suspected some scenes must have been axed from the final cut of Bridgerton.

Rumours then heated upon when one Reddit user claimed this to be true, alleging they’d noticed four NSFW scenes that were MIA, in contrast to the preview they were given of Season Three.

What scenes were allegedly deleted from Bridgerton Season Three?

As shared on TikTok, the Redditor said “angry sex/broken furniture” ensued in one nixed scene after Colin Bridgerton found Penelope Featherington outside the modiste.

Another included the pair “laying in bed together talking about publishing Colin‘s manuscripts”.

“Colin whispering sweet nothings to Pen in front of the mirror,” the Redditor noted of the third missing moment. They also added that there was originally a “long sex montage” in episode eight.

Nicola Coughlan says axed sex scene rumours are false

When Coughlan shared a look at Colin and Penelope’s wedding dance on Instagram, one fan mused: “Just imagine if they gave us the deleted scenes.”

Replying to the fan, the actress revealed that the claims are just that.

“Aah this is just a rumour!” she responded. “I think you got all the Polin we had but there’s lots of BTS still to share.”

Bridgerton‘s executive producer Tom Verica backed Coughlin on his own Instagram account.

“Not sure where this all came from but these claims are false,” he wrote.

“The supposed scenes … don’t exist.” Boo!

Bridgerton crew dismissing the rumours came after more than 67,000 fans signed a petition urging Netflix to restore the allegedly canned scenes.
