Since it landed on Netflix on December 25, Bridgerton has become the most talked-about television show since The Undoing puzzled its audience with its winding whodunnit.

The Pride and Prejudice meets Gossip Girl period drama has enthralled fans, with its luxurious costumes, flamboyant wigs and enviable 19th-century decor. But it's the the cast of previously little-known actors, now thrust into the limelight, who have predominantly got people talking.

Rege-Jean Page and Jonathan Bailey, who play Simon Basset and Anthony Bridgerton respectively, are major fan favourites; as is Martins Imhangbe, who plays Basset's boxing partner, Will Mondrich.

Fresh from the success of the show, Imhangbe has flown out to Dubai to ring in 2021 in style.

The British actor, 28, seems to have been taking advantage of the sunshine in the emirate, posting a picture from a New Year's Day boat trip, and another set of photos showing him flyboarding with Dubai Marina in the background.

"May all your fears be conquered this year," he captioned his January 1 post, "Another year to remain strong! Have a blessed New Year".

On his Instagram stories, he continued to document his watersports activities, posting photographs of himself jetskiing against a Burj Al Arab backdrop. He later posted a night-time photo from a Dubai Marina balcony, with the Ain Dubai in the background.
