Bridgerton star Jonathan Bailey revealed he kept the "modesty thong" he wore in that bathtub scene.

Fans fell in love with Bailey's portrayal of the Viscount Anthony Bridgerton when season two aired, as Netflix's Regency-era followed the blossoming romance between Anthony and Miss Kate Sharma (Simone Ashley).

Of course, Bridgeton wouldn't be Bridgerton without those steamy scenes, and while season two had fewer than the previous season, there was one scene in particular which "traumatized" Bailey – and what happened after made things even more awkward.

While talking to the LA Times, the actor recalled the day he shot the scene in which Anthony is thinking about Kate while he's in the bath.

"There was actually a camera in the water between my legs looking back at me," he laughed. "So it was almost like a water birth. And I remember afterwards, I was so appalled at myself over the day that we had experienced and so confused, because you can’t really explain it to anyone."

He went on to share that because he was so embarrassed from shooting said scene and rushed away, he accidentally wore his modesty thong to the pub afterwards.

"It was just when the rules changed and you could go meet people outside, so I went to a pub that night and had a pint with my mates," he said. "When I got up to get the second round, I was like, 'I'm chafing a bit.' And I realized I still had my modesty thong on, because I was so traumatized and I ran so quickly from set that I hadn't even taken off my little pouch."

And he wasn't prepared to get rid of the memento either.

"I still have it to this day," he added.

Although season three is set to focus on the romance between Penelope and Colin, aka Polin, fans will be delighted to hear that Kate and Anthony will be returning and the couple are set to play a central role.

Sex Education's Ashley told Deadline: "We're going to be back! "In season 2, there was a lot of push and pull between Kate and Anthony, there were complications with the family, and then they find each other towards the end. I think everything is just starting. I'd like to see Kate just let go a bit more and play more in season 3 and kind of swim in that circle of love together. I think they both deserve it."

Bridgerton seasons 1-2 are streaming now on Netflix.
