Dublin: 8 °C Monday 28 November, 2022

Last night's Poldark left everyone ridiculously hot and bothered...

Thanks to Aidan Turner’s torso.

SINCE POLDARK DEBUTED a few weeks ago, television viewers have been mesmerised by the smouldering gaze of Irishman Aidan Turner.

Case in point:

Last night, the third episode of the historical drama aired and successfully got everyone all hot and bothered, thanks in no small part to Turner’s naked torso.


Cold showers were had.

Fans were needed.

Impromptu marriage proposals were made.

Some saw it as the perfect antidote to Sunday night fear/Monday morning blues

While others wondered about the scene’s lasting cultural legacy

This guy even pledged to take up scything in the hopes of looking like Aidan Turner

In fairness, he is pretty inspirational

Others have started to wonder if the shirtless scenes are getting a bit gratuitous, though…

And others pointed out the double standards

But others have begged for more…

More again next week, yeah?

Here’s the Late Late Show performance that melted hearts all over Ireland >
