Handsome newcomer Hugh is played by actor and Burberry model Josh Whitehouse, 27.

Series three begins with Ross, played by Irish actor Aidan Turner, 33, and Demelza back together – after they were reunited at the end of the last series.

“In series two we left Ross and Demelza in a bit of a pickle with Elizabeth being pregnant – potentially with Ross’s baby,” said Eleanor.

“So there’s lots of twists and turns in this series.”

The series has turned Aidan into a heartthrob. “He’s such a lovely person,” says Eleanor.

“I think he’s a bit shy and finds it all a bit embarrassing.

“What’s great about Aidan is that he’s such a brilliant actor.”

She has laughed about the awkwardness of filming sex scenes together.

“They say it’s a closed set, but there’s still 25 people standing around while you’re in just a beige bra!” she said.

Eleanor has explained why she thinks people like watching Eleanor and Ross.

“People can relate to their relationship,” she has said. “It’s a realistic relationship, so people root for them to make it work.”
