EASTENDERS’ Adam Woodyatt looked unrecognisable to Ian Beale as he posed in a trilby hat, and sunglasses – with his big bushy beard on display.

And he proudly posed for a selfie as he enjoyed a beach stroll in Dorset on what he called a “staycation”.
In the photo, Adam is wearing the attention-grabbing hat and shades, keeping warm in a zipped-up, black puffer jacket.
The star is smiling for the camera with the stunning beach view behind him, simply captioning the post: “Beach walk.”

Embracing his 10-month sabbatical from EastEnders, Adam appears to be completely overhauling his image while exploring the country.
He regularly shares snaps from his regular bike rides, having taken up cycling after co-star Jake Wood helped him reach his fitness goals.
Adam recently revealed that he’d bought a four-wheeled home ahead of UK tour of an upcoming play.
After the show’s start date was delayed from January to July, Adam decided to use the extra time to explore – adding that he bought the motorhome to avoid having to stay in hotels while working.

He’s making the most of his down time as he enjoys a break from the soap
Adam confirmed the end of his marriage last August, with a rep for the actor revealing they had decided to separate the previous year.
The couple, who wed in 1998, have grown-up children Jessica and Samuel together.
Adam is EastEnders longest-serving cast member after joining the soap for its very first episode in 1985.
He was last seen on screen in January, with his character Ian wandering away from Walford in a daze after best-friend-turned-wife Sharon tried to murder him.
