Demelza’s brother in arms ... Poldark star ro­mances TV sib­ling

Daily Mail - - News - By Laura Lam­bert TV and Ra­dio Reporter

TO Poldark fans, they are sib­lings Demelza and Drake – so the sight of Eleanor Tom­lin­son and Harry Richard­son kiss­ing might lead some to choke on their corn­flakes.

But this amorous dis­play was not part of some ex­tra­or­di­nary plot­line in the BBC drama … rather a first glimpse of the se­cret off-screen ro­mance be­tween the co-stars.

The Daily Mail can re­veal the pair are dat­ing and en­joyed an in­ti­mate stroll through Wim­ble­don last week, where they were seen kiss­ing and cud­dling.

At one point in the shop­ping trip, Aus­tralian heart-throb Richard­son, 24, swept Miss Tom­lin­son’s flame-red hair back from her face be­fore cheek­ily pulling her closer by her dress.

Nei­ther made any at­tempt to hide their feel­ings from passers-by and as they waited for a taxi 25-year-old Miss Tom­lin­son, wear­ing a lace dress with tan heels, stepped for­ward to steal a kiss.

An on­looker said: ‘They looked re­ally loved-up and were very touchy feely, cud­dling and kiss­ing right next to a pub. At one point some­one shouted “get a room”.

‘They went into sev­eral shops and walked all around Wim­ble­don Vil­lage be­fore get­ting in a taxi to­gether. Con­sid­er­ing what a recog­nis­able cou­ple they are for any­one who watches Poldark, they were be­ing very open.’

It is thought the pair grew close dur­ing film­ing for the third se­ries, in which Richard­son has ap­peared top­less sev­eral times. The news may dis­ap­point the fans who have said that Miss Tom­lin­son and Ai­dan Turner, who plays her hus­band Ross Poldark, would make a good cou­ple. Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Miss Tom­lin­son and Richard­son did not re­spond to re­quests for com­ment yes­ter­day.
