Aidan Turner has returned to Dublin for a rare night out at home, as Poldark fans are in a spin over the show's earlier return to our screens.

The heart-throb was snapped tonight at The Gate theatre with new director of the theatre Selina Cartmell at the opening night of Noel Coward's Private Lives.

He appeared tonight at the theatre dressed down in jeans and a beanie hat for the show, which is at the beginning of a three month run.

Women around the world have fallen for the Clondalkin native thanks to his shirtless scenes in the drama and his Irish accent off-screen but he is off-the-market.

Fans of the hit show which catapulted him to fame recently learned that it will be back on the BBC in June in a move that means it will no longer clash with ITV hit Victoria.

"The earlier filming schedule on this series means that we can bring the much anticipated third series back sooner for fans to Sunday nights in June," a BBC spokeswoman said.
