By Sherna Noah

Poldark star Aidan Turner has revealed he was injured by a freak wave while filming the show.

The second series of Poldark starts next weekend, after its debut season was a huge and unexpected hit for the BBC.

But Turner has revealed that he was hurt and even dropped Eleanor Tomlinson, who plays Demelza, in the sea off the Cornish coast during filming, after a wave slammed a boat.

He said: "We were filming me lifting Demelza out of a boat in the actual sea when this huge wave picked up the boat and slammed it into my head.

"I dropped her in the water - not very Ross Poldark," he said of his romantic hero alter-ego.
