EXPRESS.CO.UK – When Victoria returns, it will see the young queen adapting to life as a mother while her husband Prince Albert (played by Tom Hughes) has taken over her royal duties.

Needless to say that the queen is far from impressed and the pair will have their fair share of arguments in the new series.

“There’s a real thunderous clash there,” Jenna teased. “Last series we had the Lord Melbourne story, Albert coming in, the proposal and the marriage, but we hadn’t really delved into their married life at all. So this gives us the opportunity to really get into the power shift, the clash of wills and the love between Victoria and Albert, as well as her keeping firm hands on the crown and being a mother.”

Jenna, who stars opposite boyfriend Tom, also revealed that those explosive arguments have led to a few accidents on set.

“It’s fun filming their explosive arguments,” she told The Sun. “We did one on our first day this year where I had to throw a hairbrush at Tom. I hit him and it broke. It was awful. I got through so many of them.”

She went on to add: “There is elation because your adrenaline is so high, but I’m not a hugely argumentative person. I’m not confrontational in that way. That’s one of the things about Victoria which is the opposite to me.”

As well as dealing with marriage woes, the queen will also face the challenges of the potato famine in Ireland and the Duchess of Kent (Dame Diana Rigg). (source)
