The latest episode of BBC1 period drama The Long Song left viewers wide-eyed after a series of steamy clinches and charged innuendos about ‘hot pepper pickle’.

The pre-Christmas three-parter documents the tangled relationships between plantation owners, slaves and abolitionists in 19th century Jamaica. 

The balmy Jamaican weather wasn’t the only heat on screen as last night’s episode saw Robert Goodwin (Jack Lowden) waltz into town and quickly put himself in the midst of a love triangle between slave Miss July (Tamara Lawrance) and obnoxious plantation owner Caroline Mortimer (Hayley Atwell).

The second episode of three-part slavery period drama The Long Song on BBC1 saw Briton Robert Goodwin (Jack Lowden) arrive at the Amity plantation and promptly seduce Miss July (Tamara Lawrance)

Viewers called the passionate love scenes between the couple, who kept their love under wraps, ‘hot’  

The clandestine encounter ends abruptly when Goodwin decides that he promised his father he would never ‘abuse’ his position in the Caribbean…but his willpower doesn’t last long

As Robert falls head over heels for Miss July, the sexual chemistry played out in a series of saucy scenes, with the couple finally giving in to their ardour…and then speaking in innuendos as they tried to conceal their passion.

Viewers took to Twitter when the pepper innuendos got too much.

@tookybaby cooed: ‘Robert and miss July clandestine sex talk is hilarious… this show gives you all kinds of feelings.’  

Tensions between the two simmer before finally their resistance breaks…and Robert decides marrying Miss July’s mistress, Caroline Mortimer, is the only way to keep their love alive

Hayley Atwell, right, plays plantation owner Caroline Mortimer, who takes slave Miss July, (Tamara Lawrance) to be her personal maid in the years leading up to the abolition of slavery in 19th century Jamaica

West Country or West Indies? Sir Lenny Henry (pictured) who stars as plantation worker Godfrey in the new BBC drama The Long Story was criticised for his Jamaican accent by viewers tuning in to the first episode

However, in spite of the passionate scenes between the couple, in which Goodwin tries desperately to resist Miss July but eventually caves in to their attraction, viewers were ultimately left devastated by Goodwin’s true colours. 

Concocting a plan so he could be with his love, he decides to marry Caroline Mortimer, the mistress July has worked for since her childhood. 

Television vicar Rev Richard Coles branded Goodwin a ‘s***’ on Twitter with plenty agreeing that his ‘plan’ was simply cruel. 

The first episode of the period drama sparked comments about the cast’s accents, with many saying they were distracted from the hard-hitting plot by the ‘fake’ Jamaican lilt. 

@PaaWOWW joked: ‘Lenny Henry’s Jamaican accent is about as Jamaican as Jamie Oliver’s jerk rice #TheLongSong’, a reference to the accusations of cultural appropriation that chef Oliver faced after he put his name to a version of the Jamaican staple.
