Colin Bridgerton Develops Feelings for Penelope, Debunking Gay Rumors

Colin Bridgerton is the third children of eight Bridgerton siblings.

Colin Bridgerton, a character from the Netflix historical series “Bridgerton” based on Julia Quinn’s novels, is speculated to be gay; however, the storyline debunks the rumors.

Actor Luke Newton, who plays Colin Bridgerton in the historical series Bridgerton, is making rounds online as Season 3 unfolds the story of Colin and Penelope.

Following his recent drastic transformation as the heartthrob on Bridgerton Season 3, Luke is tangling over the web of several speculations, including having plastic surgery.

Colin isn’t gay, disproving the Hypothetical Twist that Could Transform the Storyline

Season 3 of the Netflix series Bridgerton unfolds the love story of Colin Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington, discrediting the rumors surrounding his sexuality.

Following the release of Season 3 of Bridgerton, the audience has been going gaga over his onscreen bond with Bridgerton co-star Nicola Coughlan.

If you ask where the baseless rumor stems from, it ignites from playful tweets expressing frustration about Colin’s apparent failure to recognize Penelope’s charm immediately.

The tweet reads,’

Likewise, a Reddit discussion that talks about diverse opinions surrounding LGBTQ+ among the Bridgerton siblings also intensified the speculations.

Some noted that the show might be significantly different from the books as Shonda Rhimes has the creative freedom to introduce same-sex relationships if desired.

Others discussed the contractual commitment orders each Bridgerton sibling to end up with their partner, similar to the books.

Luke is straight and not into guys in real life also, let alone his onscreen character Colin in the Netflix series Bridgerton.

Offscreen, the actor has a history of relationships with celebrated faces, including Welsh actress Jade Louise Davies.

Jade and Netwon shared several glimpses of their love, including attending the premiere of Season 2 of the series.

However, the former power couple parted ways in early 2023 after dating for about four years.

Rumors suggest that Luke now dates Antonia Roumelioti, a model and dancer. They were previously spotted spending quality time in Los Angeles.

Having said that, neither Luke nor Antonia has gone public about the relationship on public to date.
