Poldark star Aidan Turner is said to be engaged after proposing to a secret girlfriend, almost 12-months after splitting with London based artist Nettie Wakefield.
While little is known about the 34-year old actor’s rumoured fiancée, she is believed to be ten-years his junior and based in the south-west of England.
A source told MailOnline: ‘Aidan is engaged to a 24-year old graduate lawyer from Gloucester.’

It is not known how long the pair have been dating, and they have not yet been pictured together publicly.
MailOnline has contacted the actor’s representatives for further comment.
The reported engagement may come as a surprise to fans, as Aidan was recently believed to be single.
All over: The actor parted ways with his girlfriend Nettie Wakefield after six months in June last year due to their ‘conflicting work schedules’
The actor parted ways with his girlfriend Nettie Wakefield after six months in June last year due to their ‘conflicting work schedules’.
A source told The Sun: ‘Things were great for a time and they were getting serious – but it just wasn’t to be and busy schedules drove them apart.
‘They’ve drifted and things have cooled off but there are no hard feelings. Aidan’s incredibly busy with his career and Nettie’s art is really taking off so they had a lot on their plates.’
As one of Britain’s television heartthrobs, Aidan has embarked on a number of romances during his time in the spotlight.

One month prior to his first appearance with Nettie, the Irish actor had been spotted smooching another pretty brunette in the West End, who was later revealed as high-flying executive Tara Derakshan.
The flings followed his long-term relationship with fellow actress Sarah Greene, 33, who he split from three years ago.
Aidan and Sarah dated for almost five years, with the Poldark star even hinting at a move to New York to be closer to the actress.

However the pair split in November 2015, with the Being Human star refusing to offer any details of the split or the reasons behind it.
Yet, BBC star Aidan appeared to make a dig at his former flame in 2017 – when he vowed to avoid dating a fellow actor in the future.
He said: ‘If you’re in my business and you find somebody who does exactly what you do and you’re living with them, then you’re in the business all the time.
‘You go home, talk about casting directors, you talk about the press, you talk about the next job you’re doing – it can become quite dull and taxing.’
