Viewers divided over Prince Arthur's seriously intense gesture to Victoria

Updated: 

Prince Arthur continues to blow hot and cold with Victoria in the ITV period drama - being incredibly blunt and serious one minute then appearing all romantic the next - but his latest striking move has certainly divided viewers.

When the pair were dancing, he ripped the chest of his shirt with a knife to place Victoria's corsage there so he could keep it close to his heart.

Some people thought that was exceptionally creepy thing to do.

And also totally unnecessary.

But for other viewers, it got them all flustered and excited.

No one's missing Poldark on the other channel too much, it seems.
