He has caused something of a stir among the women of Britain for his rugged role in Poldark.
But hopeful fans of Aidan Turner could be left somewhat disappointed, after it emerged he has become secretly engaged to his long-term girlfriend.
Turner, 31, has reportedly proposed to actress Sarah Greene after three happy years together.
The Sunday Express claims rumours in the couple's home town of Dublin suggest they agreed to wed after spening Christmas with Turner's parents.
A source quoted by the newspaper said: "They are a really close and happy couple, and marriage is the logical next step for them.
"Sarah is perfect for him, she's very protective. Both of them don't really go for the glitzy side of showbusiness; they're happier spending quiet evenings playing Scrabble."
Turner is currently appearing in BBC period drama Poldark as the gallant Ross, who returned from war to find his true love engaged to another man.
Over the first three episodes, he has gained legions of female fans for scenes which see him galloping across Cornwall on horseback and working topless in the field.
