The 27-year-old television actress is said to have lost her mind for 25-year-old flanker Will, who plays for Coventry and previously played for Nottingham and the England under-20 team.
Eleanor and Will are believed to have been hiding in Coventry with the athlete’s family as the UK continues to lock out amid the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic.
And it seems that being locked up together was just the test of proving their love as a success, as they are said to get along like a house on fire.
A source close to the duo told The Sun, “The couple have been seeing each other for several months and have absolutely fallen in love.
They continued, “She gets along very well with her family and they decided to be with them during their forties. “
The source added, “It’s been a while since her last boyfriend. She took her time, did not rush on anything and she really thinks that things can go far with Will who is a normal man. ”
Eleanor – who played Demelza in the blockbuster drama BBC Poldark – is already out with co-star Harry Richardson, the romance ending in 2018.
She first hinted that love was back on the cards when she shared a picture of herself with Will on Valentine’s Day in February.
And while many might find it hard to be locked up in a house with the family of a new lover, it seems that Eleanor is having a good time with Will and his friends.

“We just have a real laugh,” she told the Overrated podcast last week.
“I’m just sitting in the garden drinking a lot,” she added.
Poldark aired its last episode in August of last year – but Eleanor is back on TV screens in 2021 as part of the cast of the new HBO show from the creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon, The Nevers.
