The BBC says it will announce some exciting news about the finale of Poldark this week.

It comes as fans are told the penultimate episode of the Cornish drama will have a different time slot.

The show is being switched to 8 o'clock because of the return of Peaky Blinders.

But fans were NOT happy!

Kitty Despard's Seamstress posted: "I'm not sure how the "special announcement" is going to make up for your PR disaster and disrespect to the Poldark fan base and the amazing cast and crew of Poldark. 

"If y'all wanted to pull a stunt finale you should have said so back in June".

Steph added: "At least admit that is somewhat of an ill thought through planning excercise. A hit show, fixed scheduling for years, the last two episodes of the final season you have to reschedule it to another time slot? Weird. And I am being polite".

Producers, Mammoth Screen, took to Twitter to try to reassaure fans...

Cue another flurry of tweets - some angry and some quoting lines from the show like "T'int right, t'int fair, t'int proper".

The announcement about the finale is expected later this week.
