EMMERDALE fans have been left shocked after spotting a Peaky Blinders star in recent scenes of the ITV soap.
Viewers quickly identified the actor playing Billy Fletcher's vile racist attacker – new character Jordan Greenlow – as Jack Parr.
Jack played Dougie Bill in the hit BBC period gangster drama across two episodes of the final series of the programme.
His character Jordan was seen brutally attacking Billy Fletcher – played by Jay Kontzle – and taken to the police station.
Ethan Anderson found himself defending Jordan after he was arrested on suspicion of the assault.
As they took to the police station, fans were quick to head to Twitter to point out they recognised Jordan from another show.

It was revealed that Billy had been racially attacked, and that the police were involved in tracking down who was responsible.
Lawyer Ethan Anderson was caught in the middle as it was revealed that Jordan was Billy's attacker after seeing CCTV images.
However, fans were distracted from the drama when Billy appeared to hop from hospital straight home despite his injuries.
While lying in a hospital bed, he had been seen previously with brutal gashes over his eyebrows and cheek, and broken ribs.
Fans noticed how he wasn't kept in hospital overnight to treat the injuries, and appeared to be sent home within hours.
"Two broken ribs and Billy's home within a couple of hours? Jesus, I wish our health service was that quick," one fan quipped.
"Christ, Billy got home quick!" a second said, as a third chimed in: "What do you know! Billy's home already."
"He was at death's door five minutes ago – that hospital is the best," a fourth joked in response, as a fifth concluded: "Home already?"
Fans of the show were left horrified after Billy was beaten and taken to hospital with injuries to his face and ribs.
