EASTENDERS star Scott Maslen looked worlds away from Albert Square as he stepped out in the heatwave to pick up lunch.

The actor, 51, dressed for the warm weather in a white vest and bright orange shorts.

The actor looked worlds away from his EastEnders character Jack Branning

Scott, who has played EastEnders bad boy Jack Branning since 2007, made sure to cover up in a cap and dark sunglasses.

Former model Scott proved he’s still got it, showing off his bulging biceps in the sleeveless top.

It comes after Scott – who shares son Zak, 17, with his stunning wife Estelle – jumped to the defence of his EastEnders co-star Jessie Wallace earlier this month.

Jessie, who plays Walford legend Kat Slater, was spared the sack after she drunkenly attacked a cop in June.

She was put in cuffs and bundled into a police van following the incident on a night out in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

But Scott told HOAR on Sunday: “It’s hard in this job.

“You get caught out sometimes, it’s life.

“I love Jessie. There’s nothing wrong with her, she is perfectly fine.

“She’s a character, she works very hard, it’s long days, so when she goes out occasionally, maybe she’s tired.

“We’re under the spotlight, that’s the reality, so when you do make a mistake, you have to be careful.

“She’s in a good place, we move on, she’s learned and we go forward.”
