The 25 year old, who recently shared a peak inside her London home, portrays the beautiful Daphne on the programme, starring opposite Regé-Jean Page, who plays Simon Basset.

Now, the TV personality has confessed both masturbation and sex scenes were quite difficult to film as they made her feel "vulnerable".

Speaking to Glamour magazine, the star explained that her intimacy coordinator Lizzy Talbot helped her get through the masturbation scene.

"That was the hardest scene to shoot," she told the publication. "That's saying something, because there were a lot of difficult scenes to shoot.

"You feel very vulnerable in those scenes. We did the intimate scenes like stunts—we blocked them out, so you have yoga balls in between you and all sorts of things that never make you feel exposed in any way. You always feel safe.

"I'd rehearse with Regé so much that we both knew what we were doing. It felt very practical."

Phoebe, who was recently spotted looking fresh-faced as she went on a walk with her Coronation Street star mum Sally, continued: "But on my own, it's a different thing. The stage directions are very specific: You have to [perform having] an orgasm.

"It's a difficult thing to rehearse, which means you don't. You just do it. I always get back to the fact that Lizzy was on set for that scene.

"If we didn't have an intimacy coordinator, it would be our director, who was a male, coming up to me and telling me what to do. That would have been awkward.

"I felt so safe in the knowledge that Lizzy was there, so that if something went wrong or the director wanted something different he could speak to her first."

She added: "I think it would have been a very difficult experience if Lizzy hadn't been on set protecting me and looking after me. No one wants to be told how to perform orgasm [on set] by a man."

It comes as Bridgerton creator Chris Van Dusen has teased the series could have a long lifespan of eight seasons.

"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," he told Collider, adding: "For each character, for sure. I would love that."

Chris went on to explain that the first season of the show was "primarily about Daphne and her love story with Simon", but there is so much more to explore within the world of Bridgerton.
