The Bill Reg Hollis star Jeff Stewart unrecognisable 11 years after leaving show

The Bill star Jeff Stewart has completely transformed since his days as a clean-cut copper on the show.

Jeff, who played beloved character Reg Hollis on the ITV hit police drama, has ditched his short-back-and-sides haircut for a long grey mane.

Recently spotted on an afternoon stroll, the 63-year-old donned a casual outfit of shorts, a khaki shirt, and a checkered blazer.

The actor appeared in almost every season of The Bill, playing Police Federation representative Reg.

PC Reg started out on the show with a desk job but later proved himself as a capable policeman on the streets.

He had a number of major storylines on the series, including his romance with Marilyn Chambers (Vickie Gates), who worked on the front desk in the station.

Tragically, Marilyn was killed in a fire in the station just as Reg was planning to propose to her.
