Bridgerton star Jessica Madsen has declared her ‘love for a woman’ in a sweet social media post.

The actress, 32, plays Cressida Cowper in the Netflix period drama, but has also appeared in other shows including Holby City, Mr Selfridge and Tina and Bobby.

After sharing that she was bisexual last year, Jessica then offered her followers a sweet update on her love life this weekend.

‘In Love with a woman, loud about it and proud about it! 🌈#pride #pridemonth #loveislove #gaypride,’ she shared on Instagram alongside a series of pride related photos, including a video of her with rainbow diamantes under her eyes.

Running across June, Pride Month is dedicated to celebration and commemoration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride.

Her post was met with many supportive comments, including from co-star Nicola Coughlan, who shared a series of love hearts.

Jonathan Bailey also posted a series of hearts.

Meanwhile Hannah Dodd, who plays Francesca Bridgerton, commented: ‘Love youuuuuu.’

On her Instagram story, the actress also re-shared viral pride posts saying ‘News flash: I’m queer’ and ‘Don’t interact with me in June unless this is the vibe you’re bringing,# the latter of which featured an illustration of a bucking unicorn-slash-Pegasus with multi-coloured wings.

Last year, Jessica also shared a similar post for Pride, writing, ‘Bi the way…. Happy Pride month’, alongside graphics that said, ‘Bisexuals are not “confused”,’ “Bi AF”, and the Panic! At the Disco lyric ‘Girls love girls and boys/and love is not a choice’.

Jessica has appeared on the past three seasons of Bridgerton, with her character initially seen as a romantic rival for Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and then Penelope Featherington (Nicola).

This season she also formed an unexpected friendship with Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie), which has left some fans calling for the women to have a romantic storyline of their own.

In an interview with The Cut last month, Jessica said she loved seeing her character develop a firm friendship after alienating many with her gossiping ways in the past.

‘I was so excited to work with Claudia and to have an opportunity to delve into a real friendship because we haven’t seen Cressida really have any friendship so much as her sort of girl gang that we see her with in the first two seasons,’ she said.

‘Immediately, the words and the text were so delicious for Claudia and I to play with, and we had such an amazing chemistry and a bond with each other.’

She added the pair develop a ‘safe space’ and ‘really learn from each other and grow because they’re so different’.

Bridgerton is streaming on Netflix.
