PEAKY Blinders fans were stunned to be introduced to Tommy Shelby’s son on screen.
The youngster’s resemblance to a certain pop star left many of them gaping.
When Tommy presented his long-lost son Duke, viewers rushed to Twitter to comment on how much the new family member looked like a popular former boy band member.
One asked: “I can’t be the only one who thought when Tommy’s son walked in Harry Styles was #PeakyBlinders first”.
Another wrote: “I really thought it was Harry Styles, gotta find my glasses #PeakyBlinders”.
A third quipped: “Can’t believe they have Harry Styles on the show #PeakyBlinders”.
“Tommy’s son is a Wish version of Harry Styles,” added another.
Duke is actually played by 22-year-old actor Conrad Khan and not former One Direction singer Harry Styles.
Tommy – played by actor Cillian Murphy in the BBC crime drama – was recently mourning the death of his daughter Ruby as they attended her funeral.
As he rampages and kills those he believes are responsible for cursing his daughter, he learns of Duke.
Esme Shelby (Aimee Ffion-Edwards) tells him that a woman he slept with during World War I caused her to give birth to a boy named Duke.
“Her name was Zelda, she said you slept together under a hazel tree,” she explained.
‘She got pregnant, her father threatened to kill you, you had already joined the army, left for France. You remember the girl in the hazel tree, don’t you, Tommy?’
Tommy replied, “Whoever this boy is, our business is done here.”
Esme added that the boy’s mother is dead and he works at the fairground but wants more out of life.
“If the loss of Ruby has left a hole in your heart, I’ll send it to you if you give me a little more gold,” she added.
