Eleanor Tomlinson seems to have found love in lockdown, after it was reported that the actress is isolating with her new beau, rugby player Will Owen.
The Poldark star is said to be ‘smitten’ with the sportsman, as they isolate with his family in Coventry.
A source told The Sun: ‘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.’
While the pair have kept their relationship fairly private, Eleanor previously shared a loved-up snap of the pair of them on Valentine’s Day, as she wrapped her arms around her beau and pressed her forehead against his.
Will, 26, plays for his local team, Coventry Rugby.
Eleanor, 27, previously dated her Poldark co-star, Harry Richardson, until they split in 2018.
The actress stunned audiences with her role in Poladark as Demelza, with fans being devastated when the series came to an end in August 2019.

Opening up to Metro.co.uk, Eleanor admitted she had been worried she would be typecast in future roles.
‘I did worry about that, but that’s what I’m focusing on now. Trying to branch out and try different roles,’ she said. ‘I’m just lucky to be working and I’m so glad that I am.’
Reflecting on the impact of the show and the characters, Eleanor continued: ‘I think with the characters that we had to portray, they had such an interesting and intricate relationship.

‘It was all really on the page and to have the opportunity to work for five seasons on something where you can grow as characters and as people – I was 21 when we started, I’m 27 now so I’ve really grown up on it and I guess so has [Aidan Turner] as well.
‘It’s just an organic thing that happens when you start a long series like that, it’s just lovely.’
