In the Bridgerton prequel series on Netflix, Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story, young Queen Charlotte (India Ria Amarteifio) was certifiably shooketh when the handsome young stranger who interrupts her escape attempt from her own wedding turns out to be her intended King George III.
The young king is played by British actor Corey Mylchreest.
Given Corey's charming introduction into the Bridgerton-verse, many fans have been wondering — is the actor single or is he dating anyone in real life?
Here's what we know.
Is 'Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story' star Corey Mylchreest dating anyone?
Corey definitely appears to keep his personal love life on the down low, even humbly joking to People Magazine that his Bridgerton role wasn't going to make him a heartthrob.
He said that Freddie Dennis, the actor who plays King George III's loyal servant Reynolds, was, "The real heartthrob of the whole operation."
However, Corey did reveal one key detail about his dating life during a red carpet interview with Extra at the Los Angeles premiere of Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story.
When asked if he had watched Bridgerton prior to being cast as young King George III, Corey replied, "I was told not to watch it, to try not to emulate any of the performances. And as soon as I got the job, I was like, 'All right, I gotta binge this thing.' I sat down with my girlfriend and we did the whole shebang."
It didn't take long for fans to find photos of his girlfriend on the internet.
That's about the extent of Corey's revelations about his dating life. He doesn't share any pictures of his girlfriend on his Instagram page (which is understandable, especially if his girlfriend doesn't want to be faced with any public scrutiny.)
However, it did not take long for fans to find his partner on TikTok.
While "sorrow, sorrow, prayers" were exchanged following the discovery of his girlfriend, most fans were supportive of his relationship.
"She looks like the nicest person ever I hope she doesn’t get any hate," one user commented before another added, "I better not hear anyone saying one bad thing abt her. NOT ONE THING!"
A third chimed in, "Honestly they are really cute together I can’t be mad."
So, while we might not know how his girlfriend feels about those steamy scenes in Queen Charlotte, India Ria Amarteifio did open up about working with Corey and he was the ultimate gentleman.
"The only reason we could get through it is because I really trusted Corey," she told Glamour UK. "It was like any other scene, but you’re using your body in a slightly different way. And detaching yourself and remembering that you’re playing a character as well is incredibly important."
Bridgerton officially has a new heartthrob, and Corey's girlfriend is very lucky!
