Emmerdale star Matthew Wolfenden has caused a stir amongst fans following his Sunday Brunch appearance… horrifying in a backwards-facing cap.

Matthew appeared on this weekend’s episode of Sunday Brunch (Sunday, December 3) to talk about his recent Emmerdale exit and promote his stage version of Elf.

However, viewers found themselves more distracted by Matthew’s outfit – which included a backwards-facing baseball cap – than anything he was saying.
