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’


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.
