Jenna Coleman has already won us all over as the young queen on Victoria, and now it is Rufus Sewell’s turn for a bit of Twitter love.
The actor’s performance as Lord Melbourne in the ITV drama is certainly igniting – and fuelling – a few crushes.
Just caught up with fab #Victoria ð
*shallow female comment alert* Rufus Sewell…still ridiculously handsome, he's like a fine wine ð

One fan even suggested he was better than Colin Firth as Mr Darcy!
So, Rufus Sewell may have trumped Colin Firth as my fave period drama watch #Victoria
