It was revealed Bridgerton's leading man Regé-Jean Page had a brief cameo in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part One, earlier this month.

And the actor is not the only one to have starred in J.K Rowling's film adaptation as eagle-eyed fans twigged Prince Friedrich, played by Freddie Stroma, was Cormac McLaggen.

The actor, 34, starred as the arrogant Griffindor quidditch player in the sixth film, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, as well as the final two films.

Fans were astounded after making the connection to Queen Charlotte's Prince Frederick of Prussia- a far cry from the foolhardy quidditch keeper.   

One wrote on Twitter: 'I finally found out where I knew Prince Friedrich from Bridgerton from! The actor played Cormac McLaggen in Harry Potter! I KNEW HE LOOKED FAMILIAR!'

While another viewer of the show added: 'I've finally figured out why Prince Friedrich of Bridgerton looked so familiar. Of course! The character is played by the same actor who played Harry Potter's annoying Cormac McLaggen!!!'

And Freddie is not the only cast member to have starred in the Harry Potter franchise.

Leading man Regé-Jean who played Simon Basset, Duke of Hastings had a brief cameo in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 back in 2011.

The actor, 31, starred on screen for approximately three seconds as he stood beside Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) at Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour's wedding reception. 

It's the scene where Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his friends were terrorised by the party-crashing Death Eaters before they disapparate to Tottenham Court Road.   

Bridgerton debuted on Christmas Day and has remained in the top spot on Netflix's most-watched list for the last two weeks, proving to be a mammoth success. 

And the show could likely go from overnight sensation to an eight-season run, according to the creator of the Netflix hit. 

Chris Van Dusen, the showrunner, said: 'This being a family of eight children and there being eight books, I would love to be able to focus and really tell stories and love stories for all the Bridgerton siblings. For each character, for sure. I would love that.'

The show is based on Julia Quinn's Bridgerton novels - the second one called The Viscount Who Loved Me.

Book two follows Daphne Bridgerton's elder brother Anthony, who is on the hunt for a wife.   

Julia Quinn refers to her sequel books as 'second epilogues'. 

Bridgerton is set to rack up over 63 million views by the end of January.

Netflix have not confirmed further instalments but an announcement seems inevitable.
