'Putting on stockings is the new scything!' Poldark fans go wild on Twitter over a racy scene that sees Aidan Turner's tousled-haired hero seduce Demelza
- Final scenes of last night's episode of BBC drama were particularly racy
- Poldark helped Demelza put on a new pair of stockings in charged scene
- Fans of Aidan Turner got hot under the collar at the steamy marital reunion
- One predicted sales of stockings would soar in the 'foreseeable future'
The latest episode of Poldark offered viewers one of the steamiest scenes yet with heartthrob Aidan Turner seducing his wife - and thousands of viewers - with a pair of stockings.
Turner's Ross Poldark sizzled at the end of the hour-long Sunday night installment when he wooed his wife Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) as she was getting dressed.
The racy soft-focused scene saw Turner fans getting hot and bothered as Winston Graham's Cornish hero gently helped his wife put on the hosiery before passionately embracing her.

Last night's episode of Poldark saw the Cornish hero redeem some very poor behaviour with a pair of new stockings and a gentle hand...which got many viewers hot under the collar
'Sales of stockings to rise for the forseeable future' Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) was impressed with Poldark's ways with hosiery and the couple reunited in a passionate embrace
The scene's killer moment, which was so softly lit viewers had to strain their eyes to see it, involved the gentle-handed Poldark rolling up the stockings on his wife's legs.
'Sale of stockings to rise in foreseeable future!' quipped one user, @Bonlet, while another, @jojocooper568, said: 'Typical man though eh Ross...buy a girl stockings and you think all is forgotten, eh? Hmm...well...maybe....just this once.'
Elsewhere, some social media users could hardly contain themselves. @mandyjayn cooed: 'Oh Ross... you can tie a blue ribbon around my stockings any day.'

@sara_kath swooned: 'Poldark can put stockings on me any day. My god. *fans self*'
The tousled-haired hero arrives in Demelza's room and catches her getting dressed
The steamy scene prompted hundreds of tweets on Twitter, with many willing to forgive Poldark's recent bad behaviour
One Twitter user said she was off to try and recreate the scene with her husband and a pair of flight compression socks
@mserinkelly quipped: 'Just off to recreate that stockings scene with my husband wearing his best fleece.'
The episode saw Poldark and Demelza passionately reunited after a tricky period in their marriage following the Cornish hero almost being jailed to a debtor's prison and Ross' clear sexual attraction to Francis.
There was also the small matter of suggesting his wife would take more kindly to hardship than Elizabeth because she was merely a 'miner's daughter.'
Plot aside, much of the Poldark-related tweets surfacing since the show's airing weren't about Graham's lead protagonist's poor behaviour, more how seductive Aidan Turner looked while helping his wife with her hosiery.
Although some fans became fixated with the idea that the scything hunk only focused on one leg.
@Tickittybooboo wrote: 'Shame...Ross could only afford one stocking' while @EmilyRWhitehous added: 'Ross got his wife one stocking for Christmas. And they say romance is dead.'

The subtle scene got pulses racing, according to viewers commenting on social media
Baby number two? Could the couple, who had their first child together in the current series, just conceived a sibling in the period drama?
