NETFLIX period drama Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story will feature a royal helping of Jagger swagger.
Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger is among the inspirations for costumes worn by Charlotte’s husband King George III, played by Corey Mylchreest.
The young monarch’s backstory is explored in the Bridgerton prequel.
Styles of late singer Prince and actor Timothee Chalamet were also influential, according to show designer Lyn Elizabeth Paolo.
She said: “Basically our pitch was that we were going to do a runway show.
“So the young King George’s costumes had several key sources of inspiration, including Timothee Chalamet, Prince and Mick Jagger.”
The highly anticipated spin-off show will be centred on the life of a young Charlotte, played by India Amarteifio.
It launches on May 4.
THAT’S THE SPIRIT, PETER
THERE will be a spooky presence during The Windsors’ Coronation special.
Peter Davison plays the ghost of William IV, who Prince William (Hugh Skinner) consults about his small coronation.
Former Doctor Who actor Peter joins the returning cast for the one-off Channel 4 episode at 9pm on Sunday.
They include Harry Enfield as King Charles, Richard Goulding as Prince Harry and Morgana Robinson playing Pippa Middleton.
Peter said: “I’m very pleased to be asked to appear in the Coronation special, even if I am only an apparition.
“After many years going from playing vets, to doctors, to policemen, to vicars, and then barristers, I can see I’ve now reached the ghost phase of my career.
“This is not necessarily a good sign, but it was a joy to do it.”
‘Force to be reckoned with’
FLO WILSON is to join the Emmerdale cast as vicar Charles Anderson’s mother Claudette.
She is described as “a force to be reckoned with” and unafraid to speak her mind.
Her son in the ITV1 soap is said to find her overbearing – something other characters quickly learn too.
DECK OF A SHOCK
EAGLE-EYED fans may have noticed an unlikely cameo in ITV1’s new medical drama Malpractice last night.
And the supporting artist from Bravo reality series Below Deck, which follows a group of young people who work on yachts, caused quite a stir on the set.
Malpractice director Philip Barantini said: “We had a couple of supporting artists come on and one was one of the stewardesses from Below Deck.
“The whole cast and crew were literally obsessed with this SA.
“We were like, ‘What are you doing here?’ She wants to get into acting.
“I’m obsessed with Below Deck, so it was a big surprise.”
A CLOSE CALL FOR GAZZA
PAUL GASCOIGNE got thousands of congratulation messages after winning Channel 4 reality series Scared Of The Dark last week.
But it’s a safe bet he didn’t respond to well-wishers like he once did to the Pope – by nearly telling him to “f*** off”.
The footballing great was training with Italian club Lazio in the Nineties.
Gazza revealed: “They said, ‘Paul there’s a phone call for you’.
“I says, ‘Tell them to f* off. I’m training’. ‘No, I think you’d better take the call’.
“I said, ‘Who the f*** is it?’ He went, ‘It’s the Pope’.
“So I picked up the phone and I went, ‘Hi, Pope. You OK?’. He says, ‘Aye, Gazza. I want to see you’.”
SUCCESSION actor Brian Cox has been cast as The Controller in new Prime Video series 007’s Road To A Million, where contestants go on a global adventure to win £1million.
Brian’s villainous character controls their fate.
The series, filmed in famous Bond locations, will launch later this year.
