Viewers are falling in love with Rufus Sewell on Victoria
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
