    A chance at seeing his bare chest has become a weekly Sunday night excitement for Poldark viewers across the country.

    But Aidan Turner fans had to make do with his stunt double on Saturday when the hunky stand-in was spotted swimming through the Cornish seas on the filmset of the hit BBC drama.

    It looks like the nation’s favourite mine owner is in for just as many dangerous rides in the fourth series of the programme as in the previous three, as Ross Poldark’s muscular double was pictured floating face down in the chilly coastal waters.

    In trouble again, Ross? Poldark looks set to face more danger in the fourth series of the hit BBC drama, Aidan Turner's stuntman floated face down in chilly waters on Saturday

    Although worrying that the scene may mean Ross could face drowning in the next season, the stuntman was soon spotted swimming to shore, where he was wrapped up in a huge khaki coat to recover from the cold dip.

    As he swam to safety, the resemblance to Aidan Turner was striking – not least in his flowing brown hair and toned torso.

    Aidan’s on-screen wife Eleanor Tomlinson was also spotted on the rainy set, wearing her beautiful red hair in curls characteristic of Demelza Poldark.

    She sheltered from the typical British weather under one of the crew’s umbrellas in an attempt to keep her on set make up intact.

    It’s not clear whether or not the picture of the double floating motionless will make up part of a scene, and MailOnline have contacted the BBC for comment. 

    Some 6.4million people who tuned into the programme this summer, based on the books by Winston Graham, are waiting in anticipation for the fourth series.

    Cast members have been tantalising fans with pics from the set, including a cheery Instagram snap shared by Icelandic actress Heida Reed, who plays Elizabeth Chynoweth, posing with Aidan.

    Since season three aired this summer, it’s expected that season four will hit screens at a similar time in 2018.
