Poldark leading man Aidan Turner has revealed he stole pieces of furniture from the set of the historical drama and put them in his London home.
The star admitted to nabbing several large pieces of furniture seen during the BBC series, rather than the smaller mementos taken by other cast members during filming of the show’s final episodes.
The upcoming fifth season of Poldark, set to begin airing this month, will bring the programme to an end.

Turner told The Sun that the furniture was “perfect” for his property, despite the show’s 18th century setting.
The 36-year-old said: “I took the kitchen table and the benches — they’re in my house in London.”
Turner admitted that the pieces now take pride of place in his own kitchen.
His less blatant co-stars took items including a seashell bracelet, a suit and an antique book.
Luke Norris, who plays Dr Dwight Enys, auctioned a box from the Poldark set for charity.
Poldark has become one of the BBC’s most talked about shows, with Turner’s frequent shirtless scenes turning him into a heart throb.
He even found himself at the centre of a sexism row when Lorraine Kelly ogled him on her chat show and was questioned by comedian Martin Clunes.
Turner has also spoken about his work on the show coming to an end, including his final scenes with on-screen wife Eleanor Tomlinson.
“It was quite poignant,” he said. “Our last day was just myself and Eleanor doing some bedroom scenes.
“It was quite intimate, quite lovely.”
