Jeff Stewart (born 28 October 1955) is a Scottish actor probably best known as PC Reg Hollis in the ITV drama The Bill, a role he played from 1984 to 2008.

Before appearing in "The Bill" Stewart played numerous roles in other television series, including Harry Fellows in Crossroads in 1964 (his first television appearance) and Dukkha in the Doctor Who story Kinda in 1982. He played a police constable in Hi-De-Hi! in 1983, the same year "Woodentop" (the pilot episode of "The Bill"), aired.

Reg Hollis is mentioned but not seen in "Woodentop", so Stewart's first appearance in the series was in the first regular episode, "Funny Ol' Business - Cops & Robbers". By March 2007 Stewart was the last member of the cast remaining from that first episode.
