Polly Shelby (played by Helen McCrory) was in charge of the Peaky Blinders while Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) was at war. He often seeks advice from her and she isn't afraid to get her hands dirty when needed. But Polly hasn't exactly had the best of luck in terms of her love life.


WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Peaky Blinders.

Polly was previously married to river Gypsy Gray who she had children Michael (Finn Cole) and Anna Gray with.

Their story didn't end well though as her husband died drunk, squeezed between a boat and a lock.

In season four, Polly met hitman Aberama Gold (Aidan Gillan) who she quickly fell head over heels for.

With Tommy's blessing, Aberama proposes to Polly which she gleefully accepted.

However, their happiness wasn't to last as he was brutally stabbed to death during the Oswald Mosley (Sam Claflin) assassination attempt.
