Poldark viewers joked that their ovaries were exploding after the latest instalment saw heartthrob Aidan Turner holding a newborn baby.

Fan favourite Ross Poldark snuggled up to the tot after Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) gave birth in Sunday night’s instalment of the BBC drama.

The sweet scenes had viewers swooning.

“Captain Ross holding the baby like that just made my ovaries tingle,” gushed one viewer on Twitter, while one posted a video of an explosion captioned: “Ovaries.”

Another said: “Aidan Turner holding a baby My womb just threw itself into traffic.”

Many fans also saw the funny side because Demelza welcomed her baby just three weeks after the pregnancy was revealed.

Her baby news came to light when the drama returned to TV screens in June for the new series.

One person laughed that “Sims are pregnant for longer than Demelza is”.

Another person said: “Demelza has had a long pregnancy this time ..3 episodes although the kid will be going to uni next week I guarantee.”
