OAPs’ dark ob­ses­sion with six-pack TV star

Sunday Mail (UK) - - News -

Right, I don’t get the Poldark ob­ses­sion and, af­ter see­ing ac­tor Ai­dan Turner be­ing mobbed by ador­ing fans, I’ve fig­ured out what my prob­lem is.

I’m a cou­ple of decades too young for him and it’s a rare oc­ca­sion I get to say that th­ese days.

Ai­dan-of-the-rip­plingsix-pack six was try­ing to leave a Lon­don the­atre when he met the sil­ver horde, av­er­age age 65-ish.

Not ex­actly a re­run of Beatle­ma­nia then, more like a Women’s In­sti­tute coach out­ing af­ter too many sher­bet lemons.

Ru­mour has it they only wanted to see his torso up close so they could knit him a sweater in the right size.
