It’s Rufus Sewell v Aidan Turner in battle of the period heartthrobs
Oooh it’s a tough choice. Aidan Turner or Rufus Sewell?
Yes it seems Rufus’s turn as Lord Melbourne in ITV’s Victoria is giving Poldark star Aidan a run for his money in the female fan stakes.
So while we might have assumed that most women were turning into the BBC in the hope of glimpsing Aidan’s six-pack, it seems that isn’t the case. Plenty opted to see Rufus work his charms instead.
Having to choose between Aidan Turner and Rufus Sewell at 9pm. Heartbreaking. ð #Poldark #Victoria

Aiden Turner vs Rufus Sewell. The Sunday night ratings war is really quite spectacular. #Poldark #Victoria #ItvVictoria

Screw Poldark. My crush on Rufus Sewell in any period drama will never, ever die so Victoria wins.

Double totty TV tonight – first Aidan Turner as #poldark, then #victoria on +1 to catch a glimpse of Rufus Sewell too.
