Fans ecstatic as Poldark gives us second 'not guilty' of the night

Ross Poldark is a free man after fending off accusations of plundering a ship.

The mine owner’s future was hanging in the balance as he stood trial in the latest episode, and fans, wrung out from the stress of The Archers trial, could barely cope.

But an hour after Helen was released on the radio soap, Poldark (Aidan Turner) was also free.

But the episode of Poldark wasn’t without a downside… where were his abs????

The swoon-worthy star has made a bit of a name for himself with that six-pack and viewers tune in expecting it to be on show.

Once the episode started the countdown to shirt off time was up and running on Twitter.

But as the minutes ticked by, Ross’s shirt stayed firmly buttoned up.

Then suddenly we were at the end, without seeing even a flash of that muscled torso.

Lets hope for a better effort next time!
