POLDARK star Aidan Turner has revealed the hit BBC drama is likely to end next year.
His comments come in the wake of a pay row scandal when it emerged he is paid more than leading lady Eleanor Tomlinson – who admitted this week she is “upset” by the disparity.
Poldark star Aidan Turner says things naturally come to an end as he hints the show will probably end after 2019
The show’s fourth series returns next month with a fifth commissioned for 2019, which the hunky star, 34, believes will be the last.
He said: “It’s been big for us all and it’ll always be a special thing but things naturally do come to an end and I think we’ve done really well with Winston’s books and I hope he’d be really proud.
“But it’s nice when things naturally come to an end, you don’t want things to go on really long.
“I think next year might be the last one, certainly for a while.”

He added: “We may come back, who knows. There’s a huge gap in the books, about 15 years.
“I wouldn’t age up, I’d come back in 10 years. I’d revisit it the right way, I’m not putting grey in my hair or anything like that.”
Set in 1796, the fourth series will see Poldark trying to defend Cornwall from George Warleggan, while wife Demelza, played by Eleanor Tomlinson, 26, finds her loyalties torn.
