EX-EASTENDERS star Thomas Law looks worlds apart from his old soap character as he returns to TV screens in ITV drama The Bay.
After a six-year absence from the telly, Peter Beale actor Thomas, 28, is starring as DC Eddie Martin in the prime-time crime series.
The detective will work alongside Morven Christie’s Lisa Armstrong to solve a brutal murder within a seemingly loving family.
Last summer Thomas showed off his impressive physical transformation as he went topless for an Instagram picture.
Strict workouts with his personal trainer made him almost unrecognisable from the skinny youngster in Walford.
He was the fifth actor to take on Ian Beale’s son in the BBC One soap, playing the character between 2006 and 2010.
The role has been played by two more stars since then – Ben Hardy, who later left for Hollywood success, and newbie Dayle Hudson who made his debut last year.
In one of his gym photos, Thomas can be seen sweating in an exercise studio, with his blue T-Shirt wrapped around his fists.
He captioned the buff post: “#tbt to when I fully listened to everything that @billybwfit told me to do, lol”.
Needless to say, his followers were blown away by the snap, with one flirting: “Dammmmmmmmnnnnnnn, [you] got so sexy”.
Another swooned: “Seriously when are we getting married!?”
A third tagged a pal, writing: “I told you Peter from EastEnders was one to watch when he got older!!”
After finding fame as Peter, Thomas went on to appear in medical drama Casualty.
He is also an avid singer and plays guitar, regularly sharing videos of his jams with followers.
