BRIDGERTON star Rege-Jean Page has dropped a huge hint he’s set to play James Bond – after refusing to deny he’s got the job.
The handsome actor has set pulses racing in Netflix’s saucy period drama – and it might just have helped him bag the role of the greatest ladies man of them all but the star is keeping tight-lipped.

“We consider this film to be a classic Bond film but with a modern twist.
“It’s also vitally important because it is the fifth and final one that Daniel Craig is going to be doing, so it’s a culmination of everything his portrayal of the character has been through and it ties up all the storylines. “It’s a pretty epic film, I have to say.”
The film’s release has been pushed back numerous times due to the coronavirus pandemic but Bond fans will finally get to see it from April 2.
The Graham Norton Show airs Fridays on BBC One at 10.45pm.
