After reports that Poldark's Aidan had popped the question to long-term girlfriend Sarah Greene, the actress has been forced to deny that he put a ring on it

We were very, VERY sad when we heard the news that Poldark actor Aidan Turner was engaged to be married.

Well, we were happy for him and his lovely girlfriend Sarah Greene too, of course, but we were also sad because we thought any hope of him ever being on the market was shattered.

Anyway, it turns out he isn’t about to walk down the aisle. Sarah has announced that her and Aidan are not in fact planning a wedding.

She made the denial when spotted out and about in Dublin, having attended the JDIFF’s Expressing Emotion: Actors in Conversation event with her man.

‘I’m not engaged,’ said Sarah. Photographers had flocked to the event to capture the first photos of Sarah’s engagement ring, but were left disappointed when they saw the actress’ bare left hand.

Now, as Ross Poldark fans, we are letting out a little sigh of relief, but also we feel a bit bad for them.

Sarah, 29, and Aidan, 31, have been together for over three-years, and maybe he had been thinking about popping the question? But now it’s been TOTALLY ruined. And maybe Sarah had been thinking about it too, and is now a little embarrassed?

She needn’t be though, she is still dating one of the hottest men on TV at the moment, and he is clearly smitten with her too.

The rumours started circulating earlier this week when a source told the Sunday Express that the couple are ‘really close and happy’ and that ‘marriage is the logical next step for them’ – leading to reports that Aidan had secretly proposed over the Christmas holidays.

Aidan previously admitted that work often keeps him and Sarah apart but explained: ‘It’s all we’ve ever known and it makes for good times when we meet up again.’

Nawww.

OMG! Could Poldark be our new unlikely style icon?
