Think about it – have you ever seen two redheads together?

That’s why only about two per cent of the world population have red hair and lots of them are from chilly northern countries such as Scotland and Ireland.

Now, that the planet is warmer, researchers are looking into whether we’ll eventually become extinct.

Ravishing in shades of apple green, cream and russet, each shake of her tousled red locks wins her another army of swooning fans.

Admittedly, her husband, Captain Poldark (Aidan Turner), is pleasingly easy on the eye - particularly when he decides to do a spot of shirtless scything - but for all of us on Team Demelza, the real star is the copper-haired former servant girl, played by the luminously beautiful Eleanor Tomlinson. Last week, visiting the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, Prince Harry – named the most popular royal in a Yougov poll last year - delighted the crowd of wellwishers by making a beeline for 12-year-old Ethan Toscan who was brandishing a banner saying “Redheads rule”.

One of the world’s largest sperm banks doesn’t accept donations from red haired men – sadly, there is no demand.

But it was only when I was a teenager that I realised that we redheads simply didn’t fit with the conventional notions of beauty - or at least not those current in the West Midlands in the 1990s.
