Emmerdale star Ned Porteous made a number of appearances in Bridgerton.
The actor famously portrayed Joe Tate in the ITV serial drama.
He featured in three episodes of acclaimed Netflix drama Bridgerton, which has become a huge hit since it dropped on the streaming service on Christmas Day.
Ned portrayed Lord Wetherby.
Fans were quick to notice the 26-year-old in the Shonda Rhimes series, with many of them taking to Twitter to share their suprise and joy.
One said: ‘I KNEW I recognised Lord Wetherby!! @NedPorteous I see u #bridgertonnetflix’
Another added: ‘SHUT UP NED PORTEOUS IS IN BRIDGERTON’
Ned played Joe in Emmerdale between 2017 and 2018, and it’s safe to say he was something of a fan-favourite.
Joe was primarily remembered for tricking Debbie Dingle (Charley Webb) all the while masquerading as a businessman named Tom Waterhouse.
The character later fell in love with Debbie, and the two decided to make a proper go of things, but Kim Tate’s (Claire King) return ultimately put an end to their plans.
In addition to Emmerdale, Ned also appeared in EastEnders as Mark Fowler — son of Michelle (Susan Tully/Jenna Russell) — back in 2016.
Bridgerton is available to stream on Netflix.
