Nicola Coughlan Is Not Dating Luke Newton, and It Is Just A Rumor From The Show Bridgerton

Nicola Coughlan, known for her roles in “Bridgerton,” is entirely private about her personal life.

While there isn’t much confirmed about her current relationship status, there have been some notable rumors.

Previously, it was speculated that she dated actor Laurie Kynaston, who appeared in “Derry Girls” as Phillip and “Fool Me Once” as Corey.

However, Nicola never addressed these rumors directly.

More recently, fans have speculated that Nicola is dating her “Bridgerton” co-star, Luke Newton.

Given their on-screen chemistry, many thought they would make an iconic couple.

However, a source close to the actors confirmed to People that they are not dating. In an interview with Extra TV, Nicola clarified that they are just friends.

“We think it’s really sweet, I think because we truly love each other,” she said. “He is a really special person in my life. I’ll never get to do something like this again, on this scale.”

Nicola’s comments reflect her appreciation for her friendship with Luke, making it clear that their relationship is platonic.

She seems to follow Lady Whistledown’s example of maintaining an air of mystery about her personal life.
