Ross Poldark is a free man after fending off accusations of plundering a ship.

The mine owner’s future was hanging in the balance as he stood trial in the latest episode, and fans, wrung out from the stress of The Archers trial, could barely cope.

But an hour after Helen was released on the radio soap, Poldark (Aidan Turner) was also free.

Justice for Helen. Justice for #Poldark. Let's hope Warleggan and Rob Titchener don't join forces.#TheArchers

First court drama in #thearchers and now #Poldark though it was a foregone conclusion or it would have been a bloody short series.

But the episode of Poldark wasn’t without a downside… where were his abs????

The swoon-worthy star has made a bit of a name for himself with that six-pack and viewers tune in expecting it to be on show.

Once the episode started the countdown to shirt off time was up and running on Twitter.

But as the minutes ticked by, Ross’s shirt stayed firmly buttoned up.

#Poldark 24 mins in still kept shirt on

#Poldark has got his shirt off yet….oh the disappointment on twitter..

@PoldarkTV OFF WITH HIS SHIRT!! #Poldark #AidanTurner

— Emily Whitehouse (@EmilyRWhitehous) September 11, 2016

Then suddenly we were at the end, without seeing even a flash of that muscled torso.

So am I right in saying that he didn't get his shirt off once? #Poldark #onelivesinhope
