Our Poldark radar has gone off - Aidan Turner has arrived!

The 35-year-old actor was spotted at Kittow's Quality Meats in St Austell this morning.

He took staff by surprise when he picked up sausages and sirloin steaks.

Staff at the local butcher's couldn't quite believe it when he walked into the shop.

"It was a bit of a surprise really, we have a mirror in the shop that tells us when there is someone in the shop, first thought was it couldn't be Aidan Turner but then when he was served it was like blooming heck it is him."  

"I did run out to see if I could see him afterwards but he was gone.

The Poldark star was spotted buying sausages in St Austell.

They told Pirate FM the Poldark star was 'mooching about' the store with 'a lady friend' and even picked up some condiments to go with his meats.

"He did ask if the meat was local and seemed very interested in where his meat came from.

"It's nice to know such a big face was interested in buying locally.

"He did say they're starting shooting in Cornwall today.

"It'll be interesting to see if he comes back.

"Hopefully as he's our claim to fame now.

"He's exactly what everyone depicts him to be just a nice, typical dude".

Filming for the fifth and final series is underway and it looks like Aidan Turner could be staying in St Austell.

There have been reports that the star is staying at The Cornwall Hotel nearby.

The revived Poldark, starring Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson, returned to TV screens in 2015.

This series will be based on the eighth novel by author Winston Graham - written 10 years after the last instalment.
