Bridgerton's Phoebe Dynevor 'won't be leaving Britain any time soon'
EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Phoebe Dynevor had Hollywood at her feet after the success of Bridgerton…but the second season of the racy Netflix show lured her back to Britain and now she ‘won’t be leaving any time soon’
She had Hollywood at her feet after the worldwide success of racy Netflix period drama Bridgerton, but Phoebe Dynevor has revealed that she’s moved back to Britain.
‘I came for the second season of Bridgerton and I’m so happy to be back,’ says the 26-year-old actress, who grew up in Greater Manchester with her mother, Sally, best known as Sally Webster in Coronation Street.
‘London is my place for sure,’ adds Phoebe. ‘I won’t be leaving any time soon.’
She had been going out with American comic Pete Davidson, who is now dating Kim Kardashian.
The star, who also played pottery pioneer Clarice Cliff in recent film The Colour Room, hints this may be her last season on Bridgerton: ‘I’m ready to play a more modern character.
‘There’s something to be said for not boxing everything into being just a period drama.’

With a reputed fortune of £220 million, Ed Sheeran scarcely needs to give music lessons.
The pop superstar will, though, be handing out tips on songwriting at an online event in January.
The course won’t come cheap, with aspiring stars needing to part with almost £1,000 for the weekend masterclass.
Sheeran won’t be pocketing any of the cash, however, as he’s doing it as a favour for his close friend and mentor Luke Concannon.
Before he hit the big time, Sheeran begged for work experience with musician Concannon, and once claimed to have ‘learned everything there is to know about performing, writing songs, singing and playing guitar’ from him.
Sir Nick Clegg and his wife, Miriam, never miss a chance to flaunt their right-on credentials, however silly it makes them look.
This year, Lady Clegg has even used the snowman on top of her tree to make a point about diversity.
‘There is a white man at the very top — Silicon Valley encapsulated into a Christmas tree,’ she says.
Has she forgotten her husband, a failed politician, is now a senior Silicon Valley executive (at Facebook) and a white man to boot?
Social media is no friend of mine, says Sienna
Sienna Miller has risked offending her fellow stars who have become obsessed with social media.
The actress, 39, says she avoids the likes of Instagram and Facebook because ‘a lot of that world is created by people that were somewhat on the [autism] spectrum. So a ‘like’ or a ‘friend’ to someone on the spectrum will be enough.

‘You’ve got this many ‘followers’ or this many ‘friends’ — even the words freak me out. It feels so cultish.’
She adds: ‘Even my friends who are really engaging with it, I’ve noticed they’re anxious and more depressed.’
The Affair star Dominic West was forgiven by his long-suffering wife, Catherine, after canoodling in real life with Lily James, his co-star in The Pursuit Of Love.
However, he still sees himself as a baddie.
Dismissing his chances of being the new 007, the 52-year-old says: ‘I’m too long in the tooth for Bond. But I’d love to play a villain.’
When Lily was asked about her high jinks in Rome with West, she replied, demurely: ‘Ach, I’m not really willing to talk about that. There is a lot to say, but not now.’
It’s all white for Toff on her pal’s big day
Looking resplendent in a strapless ivory gown, holding a frothy white posy, Georgia Toffolo could have been mistaken for the bride.
The I’m A Celebrity winner, 27, was not afraid to wear white at the wedding of her best friend Polly-Anna Monckton, niece of Margaret Thatcher’s eccentric friend Viscount Monckton.

‘I tried to steal the show, but I failed miserably,’ jokes Toff, whose dress was by royal favourite Emilia Wickstead, before adding: ‘What a special day.’
I’m sure that lawyer Polly-Anna, who exchanged vows with American Casey Bergen in Chelsea, would forgive Toff’s fashion faux pas: her father was formerly a monk of the Order of St Benedict.
Mx and match titles at ‘woke’ Fortnum’s
That bastion of tradition, Fortnum & Mason, has gone ‘woke’.
The Queen’s grocer is now catering for the gender-neutral, adding the title ‘Mx’ as an option when customers give their details online.
For those who prefer less modish titles, there are an array of options on offer from the Piccadilly-based store in London, including Brigadier, HRH, Dame, General and Colonel.
People who do not believe themselves to be male or female sometimes prefer to refer to themselves as Mx, and have been campaigning to be allowed to do so on official documents.
