TRIGGER Point viewers were in for a shock during Sunday night's episode as Lana Washington's brother Billy was caught up in a terrifying situation.
In the explosive episode of the ITV drama, bomb disposal expert Lana, played by Vicky McClure, was told by her superiors that her brother was a terrorist suspect.
During a surveillance call between Lana and Billy, in which she intended to lure him to the police station, it became clear that he'd in fact been targeted as he discovered an explosive rigged up to his car.
Despite the seriousness of the situation, viewers couldn't help but point out an uncanny resemblance between Billy, played by Ewan Mitchell, and a famous fictional character.
One viewer tweeted: "Lana's brother looks like Shaggy from Scooby Doo #TriggerPoint."
Another said: "Is Billy really Shaggy from Scooby Doo? #TriggerPoint."
Someone else wrote: "Billy looks a lot like Shaggy from Scooby Doo #TriggerPoint."
And a fourth joked: "Shaggy needs to get Scooby to help him #TriggerPoint."
