Radio Times TV Champion 2015: Drama Champion Aidan Turner v Sport Champion Sarra Elgan

Can BT Sport's finest knock BBC's Poldark off his high horse?


He stole hearts across the nation by brooding atop a horse on the Cornwall coast but can Aidan Turner become TV Champion? Or will he be toppled by Sarra Elgan, BT Sport’s golden-haired girl, who keeps us up to date on what’s happening around the country with pitch perfect style?

Advertisement TV Champion sees the pair facing off in the first round from Tuesday August 25th.

Drama Champion Turner saw off stiff competition to claim his crown from reigning TV Champion David Tennant, in a tense 7 million vote final. The Poldark star didn’t have an easy road to victory, though, facing off against Russell Tovey, Matthew Macfadyen and Orange Is The New Black’s Taylor Schilling along the way.

Meanwhile, Sport Champion Elgan claimed her crown early on in the competition, beating out Eddie Butler in the final. She saw off stiff competition from some of the sporting world’s finest on her road to glory too: Hazel Irvine, Sue Barker, David Gower, Graeme Souness and Mark Pougatch couldn’t topple her.


Who’ll make it all the way to the semi-finals? Well, that’s entirely up to you.
