Some fans were confused by Sam's latest post

Meanwhile, Outlander viewers have been looking forward to the upcoming sixth season, which is due to land on all Starz platforms on 6 March - only two months to go!

Teasing what fans can expect in a recent post via the show's official Twitter account, Sam said: "I think Jamie's past almost catches up with him slightly or comes back to haunt him. We meet some characters who come back into Jamie's life, and some are good, and some are more unsettling.

"This season we've had the build-up to this War of Independence, this revolution. Jamie's been on the side of the British, he knows they're the losing side. As we get closer to that point, stakes are higher. Not only for the country as a whole, but in Fraser's ridge as well. A revolution in the home as well."
