Luke Newton is best known for his role as Colin Bridgerton in the Netflix series Bridgerton but did you know he's kind of related to someone from Love Island?

Turns out in real life, Luke is dating Welsh stage actress Jade Davies, who has recently announced she will be starring on Britain's Got Talent as part of musical theatre supergroup Welsh of the West End.

Great, so turns out Jade is the sister of Love Island 2017 winner Amber Davies (remember she won alongside Kem Cetinay?).

Jade regularly posts pictures of both Luke and Amber on her Instagram and you can even see the Love Island/Bridgerton crossover in the adorable NYE picture below.

Wow, talk about worlds colliding.

And if you scroll through Amber's snaps you'll see a Love Island x Bridgerton crossover.

Outside of his role on Bridgerton and this surprising connection to Love Island, how much do you really know about Luke? If the answer is "not a whole lot", then you're in the right place.

Luke Newton on Bridgerton

Luke joined Bridgerton in 2020 as Colin Bridgerton, one of the main characters of the series. Colin is the third oldest Bridgerton sibling and was romantically linked to Marina Thompson with the two of them planning to get married until a scandal tore them apart.

Colin is also the subject of an agonising will-they-won't-they romance with Penelope Featherington - although reportedly the third series of the show will focus on their relationship so hopefully that won't be the case for much longer.
