Versailles, BBC Two's raunchy 10-part French drama about the court of King Louis XIV, features British actor George Blagden in the key role of the Sun King and Welsh actor Alexander Vlahos as the King's younger gay brother Philippe.
The drama centres around romantic interludes, political intrigue and brutal thirst for power as Louis attempts to keep his troublesome courtiers under his control in Versailles.
French critics were not pleased about a drama depicting their own history being produced in English. But British viewers couldn't get over all the sex - gay and straight. Many took to Twitter to express their thoughts.
