‘I want to be that piece of cutlery!’ Bridgerton fans swoon over the Duke of Hastings’ VERY seductive spoon licking scene – and even create an Instagram account for it
- Viewers of Bridgerton’s Netflix have been swooning over scene in period drama
- Duke of Hastings was seen seductively licking spoon in a tea room in the scene
- Fans have gone wild, one setting up an Instagram account dedicated to moment
- Have compared it to the popularity of Connell’s silver necklace in Normal People
Bridgerton’s steamy sex scenes have proved a hit with viewers, but one moment in particular has left fans feeling hot under the collar.
The new period drama follows Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) as she seeks a husband along with the other upper-crust debutantes in Regency London – and struggles to bag her dream man despite being the season’s ‘favourite’.
In the absence of suitors, she strikes a deal with the sought after Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), who never wants to marry. They pretend to court each other to make Daphne appear more desirable to other men.
In one scene the Duke flirts with Daphne by seductively licking a spoon – a move that has driven viewers wild, with one Twitter user admitting they ‘fantasise’ about being the item of cutlery.

The sexually-charged object now has its own Instagram account with 6,000 followers and has been dubbed the ‘new Connell’s chain’ – a nod to the silver necklace worn by Connell Waldron in last year’s BBC drama Normal People which went viral.
‘Pleased to see the Bridgerton Spoon is giving the Normal People Chain a run for its money in the “surprisingly popular inanimate objects of 2020” stakes. What else? Tigers don’t count,’ wrote one Twitter user.
Another viewer commented: ‘Normal People gave us Connell’s chain necklace, then @bridgerton said hold my beer, and gave us the Duke and that silver spoon.’
The scene occurs in the third episode of the drama – the aptly titled The Art of The Swoon – during which the pair visit a tea shop where they discuss their fake relationship – a ploy to attract more legitimate suitors for Daphne.
On Twitter fans have also lost their mind over the moment with one excited viewer calling the clip one of ‘the hottest man on earth’s best moments’
‘In the grand battle of the season, I am your trusted general marshalling the troops,’ says the duke after suggestively licking cake off his spoon and staring into Daphne’s eyes.
Fans were captivated by the clip, with one setting up an Instagram account dedicated to the duke’s spoon, with a bio that reads: ‘My spoon, my eyebrow, my cravat and my [peach emoji]’.
The account features a video of the moment which has racked up an astonishing 16,430 views and over 300 comments in just one day.

The Duke of Hastings’ spoon moment even has its own Instagram account with 6,000 fans
On Twitter fans have also lost their mind over the moment with one excited viewer calling the clip one of ‘the hottest man on earth’s best moments’.
‘Dear author, I fantasise about being the Duke’s spoon. Don’t tell Daphne,’ admitted one fan.
A third swooned: ‘The way that big duke of Hastings licks that spoon…’
A fourth commented: ‘Don’t talk to me unless it’s about the Duke of Hastings, THAT SPOON LICK or this round up of the hottest man on earth’s best moments.’
And it seems actor Page is aware of the effect his devilishly handsome character has on women, previously describing him as ‘very much the societal heartthrob. Darcy as a 21st century f***-boy.’
