POLDARK actress Eleanor Tomlinson has fallen for rugby union star Will Owen.
Muscled Will is her first serious fella since she split from show co-star Harry Richardson in 2018.
Eleanor, 27, and Will, 26, are isolating with his family in Coventry during the coronavirus crisis.
A source said: “The pair have been seeing each other for quite a few months and are absolutely smitten.
"She gets on really well with his family and they decided to be together with them during quarantine.
“It’s been a while since her last boyfriend. She took her time, didn’t rush into anything and she really thinks things can go far with Will who is a proper man’s man.”
Eleanor first hinted at a new relationship when she wished her Instagram fans a Happy Valentine’s Day — and posted a loved-up picture of the pair.
Will followed in the footsteps of his father Glyn by signing for his local team Coventry Rugby in 2019 on a three-year deal.
The centre has played for Leicester Tigers, Doncaster Knights and Nottingham Rugby Club. He has 12 England Under-20s international caps.
Earlier this week, Eleanor told the Overrated podcast how she was enjoying the company of his parents while in lockdown.
She said: “We’re just having a real laugh. Just sitting out in the garden doing a lot of drinking.”
Eleanor became a household name in 2015 when she starred as Demelza Poldark — the wife of Aidan Turner’s character Ross — in the BBC drama series.
She dated Aidan’s body double, stuntman Ben Atkinson, 25 — who she met on the show — until June 2017.
Eleanor then moved on to 27-year-old Australian actor Harry Richardson, who played Drake Carne.
Her latest role was in the Netflix film Love Wedding Repeat which was released last month.
She plays Hayley — who gets married in the romantic comedy — which also stars Aisling Bea, 36, and Peaky Blinders actor Sam Claflin, 33.
Speaking of her struggle to get work while in isolation, Eleanor said: “I had the work panic, the work angst the other day.
"Just a bit of like, ‘Oh God, what are we doing, when’s the next thing going to be’.”
