Is Aidan Turner getting hotter? Is that even possible? Without meaning to sound like a bunch of silly ladies, Poldark's Aidan Turner with his signature brand of smouldering Irish loveliness just keeps setting off our swoon radars. And we're certainly not alone. If he's not whipping off that smock shirt in Poldark, then Aidan Turner is just hanging about, setting off Bond rumours (will he play the new James Bond?) and just generally being a very talented, and very attractive actor.

But, can you believe that apparently Poldark producer Damian Timmer was worried after initially casting Turner, that viewers wouldn't find the 32-year-old sexy.

Sorry, what?

Yes, in a moment of self-doubt, apparently Timmer reached out to his crew to confirm whether he'd bagged the right bit of potential Cornish crumpet.

'It is true,' said Poldark composer Anne Dudley. 'Damien did ask me, 'Do you think women will find Aidan attractive?' I said, 'I don't think you will have a problem.''

Phew, imagine.

So, to prove to everyone that team InStyle are 100% of the opinion that Aidan Turner IS sexy enough to own our Sunday nights, here's the 7 times he's made us go a bit weak at the knees. The handsome devil...

1. The fist pump

Aidan it seems, is a fan of the *fist pump*. Let's punch that air together babe.

2. Uh, you got a little somethin-somethin on your lip there Aidan...

Does he realise? Course he does. The scallywag.

3. My love?

Does your BF show as much concern when you've gotten trapped in the tube turnstile. Nope. Didn't think so.

5. Hot dwarf

You all fancied him as dwarf Kili in The Hobbit. Just admit it.

Never gets old.

7. And finally...'re welcome.
