Poldark filming disrupted by fans trying to see Aidan Turner

'Poldark' filming was halted as fans tired to catch sight of Aidan Turner.

Crew members and stars of the second series of the popular drama came to the small village of Charlestown in Cornwall, south west England and caused mayhem as fans tried to get pictures of the hunky actor, who is known to take his top off and expose his ribbed body during the programme.

Local pub manager Simon Williams, revealed: "There's been a real buzz and it's definitely helped trade having the filming take place here.

"Unfortunately a lot of people have been watching and taking pictures and using flashes, which I know has halted filming."

Simon thinks it's due to the rising success of the show and the fascination with lead stars Aidan and Eleanor Tomlinson.

He added to the Daily Star newspaper: "When they shot here for the first season it wasn't busy as people didn't know who they were. But they do now as it's so popular."

Those who managed to see into the set would have seen Aidan puffing on an E-cigarette, fully kitted-out in his 18th century costume.

Filming at the Cornish location will continue for several weeks before they move on to other parts of the West Country.
