EastEnders Adam Woodyatt looks slimmer than ever after lockdown weight loss in break from playing Ian Beale


EASTENDERS’ Ian Beale actor Adam Woodyatt looked slimmer than ever as he commuted to work on his electric bike.

The 52-year-old looked fit as he biked 10 miles to work at the BBC Eastenders’ set in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire.

Adam wore a high visibility lime green jacket and matching gloves with black riding trousers as he rode his grey G6 Electric Bike.

The bike which retails at over £5000 helps Adam get to work which is a 10 miles journey each way.

He topped off his riding look with a yellow helmet, black face mask and grey back pack.

The 52-year-old star shed several stone since lockdown and has previously discussed being a victim of cruel fat-shaming.

And now Adam, who split from his wife Bev after 22 years of marriage last month, has revealed cycling has helped him slim down.

Taking to his Instagram stories, the soap star shared a short video of him clad in his cycling gear while thanking pal Jake for pushing him to get active.

Speaking to the camera, he said: “Like my mate Mr Wood says, ‘you got to get out there. You got to do it.’ He goes running – I go cycling.”

In October, he flaunted his fitness levels by racing his pal Paul Chuckle in a tram while he tackled steep steps during a trip to Scarborough.

In a short video he posted on Instagram, he said: “Chuckle took the tram and I ran up the steps.

“There was a few of them” he added while giving his followers a glimpse at his feat.

He also shared a snap of him cycling with Jake in August and captioned it: “If you go into the woods today… Lunchtime ride with @mrjakewood and his son”.

The star is almost completely unrecognisable before entering lockdown

Last month, Adam announced he had split from his wife after 22 years of marriage.

The Albert Square Icon, the soap’s longest-serving star after appearing in the first episode in 1985, had been married to Beverley Sharp since 1998.

The couple have two grown-up children together, but Adam has been staying away from the family home for several months.

It’s understood the actor made the decision to leave the relationship, but sources insist there is no third party involved.
