Fans also chimed in on social media to celebrate the soap’s ultimate bad boy…

Jeff has been a part of Emmerdale since he was 27, joining in 1997. He’s as handsome now as ever, we’re sure you’ll agree!

The brooding Dingle has tucked plenty of drama under his belt within that time. Most recently he accidentally shot his son Nate, thinking he was an intruder, which has been hush-hushed.
