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.
