The actors became household names last year after starring in the Netflix series, in which they played the Duke and Duchess of Hastings.
Now it seems they’re still best buds, despite Regé-Jean not returning to the hit show for its second season.
Their Bridgerton fame is now getting its stars into all the best parties, with Phoebe and Regé-Jean cosied up at the exclusive Tom Ford event following the Met Ball last Monday.
Earlier in the evening, the two walked the red carpet separately, posing up a storm at the high-fashion event, for which this year’s theme was Gilded Glamour.
They joined the likes of Kim Kardashian and Elon Musk for the glam event, which is usually held on the first Monday in May, but was rescheduled in 2021 due to Covid.

Phoebe – whose mum is Sally Dynevor, of Coronation Street fame – posted the adorable picture on her Instagram, well and truly exciting her 3.7million followers.
The black and white snap showed Phoebe grinning while Regé-Jean placed an arm around her and looked down smiling.
Her caption well and truly hit everyone in the feels, as she wrote: ‘We’ve come a long way since that first chemistry read in LA Mr @regejean thank you @gregwilliamsphotography for capturing this moment 💫’

Also making her Met Gala debut this week was Sex Education star Simone Ashley, with whom the world has now fallen in love with following her portrayal of Kate Sharma in S2 of Bridgerton.
Regé-Jean decided not to return for the second season of Bridgerton, opting instead to pursue his burgeoning movie career.
As for Phoebe, she returned as Daphne, playing more of a background character after bagging the main storyline last season.
In S2, Daphne Bridgerton remains a ‘devoted wife and sister, helping her brother navigate the upcoming social season and what it has to offer.’
Unfortunately, Netflix has not yet confirmed a third instalment of Bridgerton, but fans are eagerly awaiting an announcement.
