Congrats are in order for Aidan Turner, he has been crowned Best Television Actor at the GQ Men of the Year awards.

Aidan is best known for his role in the BBC series, Poldark (probably because he's hot AF in it) and picked up the coveted gong in London last night.

Fellow Irish actor, James Nesbitt presented the award to the Dubliner.

Meanwhile, Calvin Harris won Man of the Year, and very suspicious pictures went up just as his ex Taylor Swift announced she split from Tom Hiddleston. Hmmm…

There's never a dull moment, huh?



Irish native Aidan Turner is reportedly in talks to land the coveted role of James Bond in the next series of the popular spy films. 

The role is currently manned by English actor Daniel Craig who is believed to have left the role after being at the helm of four movies. 

The 32-year-old Dublin man became a bona fide heartthrob after his role as Ross Poldark in the hit BBC reboot show and it seems that this feat has not gone unnoticed. 

"Aidan has held preliminary talks with Bond producers and being in LA will give him a further chance to discuss the role," a source has told the Sun. 

Karen Thrussell, a producer for Poldark, also had some cryptic things to say about the actor's chances of landing the role. 

"I am sure it has nothing to do with James Bond, but we shall see."

Yeah Karen, that has only convinced us that he is in the running for the notorious part. 

Aidan recently took home the Television Impact  gong at the National Television Awards for his role in Poldark. 

If he lands the role, he will be the second Irish man to fill Bond's big shoes after Pierce Brosnan. 



Aidan Turner has leapt into fame since starring in Poldark, but that doesn't mean he can hold his drink.

The producer of the show, Karen Thrussell, revealed to Radio Times that she held a party for the cast and crew to watch the final episode of the first series last year.

And while they watched the show, they decided to play a splendid drinking game.

The rules of the game were very simple. Aidan had to take a drink whenever he was seen riding a horse and any time he shared a saddle, too.

Now, if you're a fan of Poldark, you'll know that he rides a horse A LOT in the last episode – so it's fair to say he got absolutely hammered.

We bet he's hoping for less horse riding next season. 



Ireland's very own Aidan Turner has just topped the poll as the 2016's Sexiest Man Alive award according to reader's of Glamour Magazine

The prestigious title, which has been won in previous years by Chris Helmsworth and Henry Cavill, crowned the Dublin man yesterday. 

Turner, who has seen a drastic rise to success this year after his turn as the brooding Poldark in the revival of the hit BBC series, is notoriously private and probably a bit mortified by the win. 

Yeah, we can totally see why he won… 

And it turns out that another certain Irish man made it into second place with Down man Jamie Dornan taking the number two spot. 

And it was British actor Tom Hiddleston that finished third. 

The rest of the top ten consisted of two One Direction's members (present and former) and a certain other American pop-star. 

Glamour's sexiest men of the year top ten:

Irish actor Aidan Turner won the Impact/ TV Moment of the Year for his turn as rogue mine owner and farmer in the hit BBC series Poldark. 

Even though the show did not pick up a gong for Best New Drama and Aidan lost out to Suranne Jones in Doctor Foster for Best Drama Performance, the actor was chuffed if not 'slightly confused' by the win. 

However, we are not confused. 

Audiences were certainly impacted by Aidan's brilliant acting, brooding good looks and well… his abs. 

"I'm not sure why I'm here, I'm glad to be, and who knows, this might be the only one I get so I'm delighted," said the 32-year-old as he accepted his award. 

He did however reference THAT scything scene in which we see a sweaty, topless Poldark working the fields that pretty much sent the internet into a tizzy. 

"I guess the scything scenes kind of speak for themselves, there's little to say there, but the rest of the cast, it's such a delight to be in this show, we have such talented people."

The one surprise of the night perhaps is The Big Bang Theory taking home the International Award over hot favourite Game of Thrones

Ant & Dec once again beat out Graham Norton to take home the TV Presenter of the Year award. 

Shayne Ward took home best newcomer for his role in Corrie while Gogglebox won best factual entertainment. 

The Great British Bake Off and Strictly Come Dancing also took home awards. 


Poldark star, Aidan Turner has revealed that he is now single and ready to mingle… sort of. 

The actor told the Telegraph that he has broken up with long-term girlfriend, Sarah Greene but he wants to keep his life private.

“He is intensely private and when I ask him about his love life he visibly squirms – he is single, having recently broken up with a long-term girlfriend, the actress Sarah Greene,” the Telegraph journalist wrote.

“But they are still good friends and he would rather not talk about it while the tape recorder is playing," she added.

“I like to keep my private life private for my own head. It’s important to me that people don’t know too much about me because I’m trying to play characters.

"Sometimes you see actors who are really good, but you have trouble separating that actor from the celebrity profile," Aidan insisted.

“I don’t want to be one of those guys. It helps that people don’t know a lot about me, I guess.”

The news comes just months after Sarah – who met Aidan at the Gaiety School of Acting ten years ago – had to deny rumours that the pair were engaged.
