Bridgerton star Hannah Dodd stuns in yellow Ralph Lauren dress at Wimbledon

Hannah Dodd looked worlds away from her Bridgerton alter-ego as she stunned in a yellow dress while attending day 10 of Wimbledon on Wednesday.

The Netflix star, 29, who plays Francesca Bridgerton in the period drama, put on a vibrant display in the chic frilled dress  as she made a stylish entrance at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in south-west London.

She matched her yellow palette with a matching shoulder bag – also from Ralph Lauren – and kept her blonde locks tied up in a sleek ponytail.

The model kept jewellery to the minimum with just a pair of dainty earrings and a dazzling bracelet.

The actress added a light pink lipstick and beamed graciously before making her way inside to enjoy some tennis.

Hannah plays Francesca Bridgerton, and the third season of the hit Netflix show saw her being intertwined in a series of romantic twists.

After being chosen as the Queen’s diamond for the season, Francesca fell in love and married John Stirling, the Earl of Kilmartin, played by Victor Alli.

Both actors made their debuts on Bridgerton in the first half of series three, released in May, which pulled in a shocking 45.1 million views within just four days of arriving on Netflix.

Francesca is the sixth child of the Bridgerton brood, who has her attention captured by John in episode three.

In the books that the show is based on by Julia Quinn, the pair go on to fall in love in the sixth novel, In When He Was Wicked, and get married.

However, in a very out of the ordinary and shocking turn for the romance series, an unexpected tragedy strikes the couple.

Victor previously gushed about working with Hannah on the show, calling them a ‘team’ and the ‘new kids on the block’, while praising her as an ‘incredible scene partner.’

Speaking to Tatler last month, he said: ‘I definitely used her as a shoulder to lean on and vice versa, both being new and both having our scenes mainly together. Sharing that experience together was really nice.’

The second part of Bridgerton’s third series drops on Thursday, after part one was released last month, with eager fans wasting no time in settling down to devour the latest antics of the regency-era romantics.

The season focuses on the long-awaited romance between Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton, but the plotline of the best friends realising their true feelings for each other proved to be a slow burner.

Part one ended on a steamy cliffhanger as after being unable to think of anyone else, Colin eventually declares his love for Penelope in a carriage after she was left heartbroken by Lord Debling.

During the encounter at the end of the fourth episode, Penelope admits that she’d ‘very much like to be more than friends’ with Colin, and the pair eventually kiss, going on to share quite a steamy scene together. 

But just as they’re getting into it, they arrive at the Bridgerton house, and after Colin fixes Penelope’s dress and hair, he steps down from the carriage and puts out his hand to Penelope to ask whether she’s coming with him. 

The show was then left on a cliffhanger, as Colin hit fans with the iconic line from the Romancing Mister Bridgerton novel: ‘For God’s sake, Penelope Featherington, are you going to marry me or not?’ 

Viewers can expect things to get even more steamy between the pair, with Nicola and Luke previously revealing that they filmed so many romps that by the end they were comfortable lounging around together naked between takes. 

In the first four episodes of series three, there was six minutes of kissing, sex, threesomes and lesbian love-making. 

It was a jump from the lack of steamy scenes in the second series, which included just a meagre three minutes of bedroom action amid eight hours and 29 minutes of screen time. 

Nicola previously revealed: ‘I think we’ve won the sauciness for this series!’ as she detailed the sex scenes. 

She teased what fans can expect to see, telling Entertainment Weekly: ‘We did break a piece of furniture while doing one scene. It’s a little bit like a stunt in which they’re like, ‘Okay, we’re gonna do this, this, and this.

‘But then they gave us freedom and we had a lot of say in how we did those scenes and what we wanted to do. That makes you feel quite empowered. So, we felt super. They were actually really enjoyable. I didn’t think they would be. It was fun.’
