Hailing from Birmingham, the actor decided to drop into Sunderland to pick up his brand new Hyundai 4×4, which excited the showroom staff in the North East location.
Posting on its social media page, Evans Halshaw said: “From the Woolpack Pub to Evans Halshaw Renault Sunderland, actor Nick Miles, best known as Emmerdale’s Jimmy King, paid us a visit.
“Our very own Natasha from the used car department handed over the keys, and it was an absolute pleasure.
“We’re delighted to have been part of this exciting moment. We wish Nick safe and enjoyable drives ahead.”
While it might have been expected that the actor would draw the most attention in the comments section of the social media post, it was the car that garnered more reaction.
Commenting on the post, one person said: “I have the same car, great choice Nick,” while another added: “I’ve had my Hyundai for years, it’s so reliable.”
