Eleanor Tomlinson on Demelza

"Ross and Demelza’s relationship is a very modern one and I believe that is why people have loved them as a couple, because they are relatable.

"Their lives aren’t perfect, Ross has cheated, as has Demelza, there is dishonesty in the relationship but there is also a lot of love and passion.

"I love Aidan [Turner]; we have a very fun relationship. We work very differently which actually works really well when we are filming and is part of the reason we have such great chemistry on screen.

"We are fiery with each other, staying true to our characters and I will really miss working alongside him. He has been a huge part of my life and a great friend."
