Netflix's new period drama, Queen Charlotte, took the internet by storm when it first premiered in May, with viewers instantly engaging in the heartbreaking love story of the titular queen and her new husband King George. 

But not only did the Bridgerton prequel series provide us with just as much romance, raunch and remarkable costumes as the original show, it also gave us a new bromance to obsess over. 

It turns out that King George actor Corey Mylchreest and Freddie Dennis, who plays his butler Reynolds, are even closer off-screen than their characters are on the show. Read on to find out everything we know about their sweet friendship.

It's clear that Corey and Freddie get on just as well off-screen as not only do they frequently share snaps of each other on their respective Instagram pages, but they also live together!

Corey revealed that the pair are roomies during a PopBuzz interview with India Amarteifio, who plays Queen Charlotte.

When asked which cast member they would trust most to be as their royal advisor, India chose young Brimsley actor Sam Clemmett: "Probably my royal advisor in the show, who is Sam Clemmett, because he is just great and very mature and seems to know a lot about life."

Corey, 25, added: "I would probably go – I mean Sam would be a valuable ally, maybe [India], maybe my advisor in the show, Freddie Dennis, who I now live with, having not known him before.
