Coronation Street fans baffled as they spot Jon star in new job after Emma drama

Coronation Street fans have been left baffled after spotting one ITV soap star in a completely different role.

Jordan Ford Silver played Jon Spear in the soap, who was introduced after Emma Brooker and Faye Windass accidentally performed a hit and run on his grandfather Ted.

Though the girls checked Ted was okay and took him home, he turned up dead later, with Faye and Emma desperately covering their tracks. Eventually, Jon and Emma fell for each other after meeting at the funeral.

Emma was forced to fess up, though Jon forgave her for the incident and the pair went off to make a new life in Australia together, leaving the cobbles behind after Emma star Alexandra Mardell quit for good.

But now fans have spotted Jordan in a different role entirely.

He’s the star of a new Shell advert, in which he plays one energy industry worker wrapped in a high-vis jacket and red work gloves.

Taking to Reddit to share their thoughts, one fan penned: “He might have gone away with Emma to open a bar in Australia, but looks like his plans have changed.

“Jon’s now fitting up to 50,000 on-street charging points by 2025 according to the new Shell advert!”

Another giggled: “Saw that a couple of weeks ago, looks like Australia’s fallen through and Emma’s just living with Angela Griffin now.”

As another slammed: “I was happy to see the back of him [to be honest].”

Along with his new Shell role, Jordan has been involved in various other marketing campaigns, providing the voiceovers for adverts including Skoda, Pure Gym and Vodafone, according to his online portfolio.

His TV credits include Midsomer Murders and The Admirer, and while his acting CV might be short, that’s because he claims to be an “actor first, traveller second” – and spends plenty of time exploring the world.

The star has been seen hiking up dusty trails and even perched in front of the Hollywood sign on his Instagram page, and keeps his loyal legion of fans updated on his whereabouts.

He usually opts for a relaxed-but-polished street style look, consisting of shorts and the occasional basketball jersey in sunnier weather, changing to simple neutral puffer jackets and tracksuits in colder climes.

Coronation Street airs Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 8pm on ITV.
