EASTENDERS star Adam Woodyatt, Todd Carty and John Altman enjoyed a surprise reunion in Ireland.

The trio of actors were thrilled to reconnect in Dublin after a chance meeting in the city.

John played bad boy Nick Cotton

Adam – who is best known for playing Ian Beale in the BBC One soap – is currently touring the UK and Ireland with My Fair Lady, after it opened at the Alhambra Theatre in Bradford in September.

He plays Alfred P. Doolittle in the show alongside opera superstar Lesley Garrett and Emmerdale favourite John Middleton.

Adam is in Dublin appearing on stage at The Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, while Todd and John are appearing at The Gaiety Theatre in murder mystery play by Agatha Christie, The Mousetrap.

Todd, who played Mark Fowler from 1990 to 2003, and John, who portrayed bad boy Nick Cotton from 1985 to 2015, are starring in the hit musical to celebrate the show’s 70th anniversary.

The former EastEnders co-stars beamed for a rare photo together.

Adam, 54, sported a grey bushy beard, while Todd rocked a moustache and John styled his longer locks slicked back.

I’m A Celeb star Adam wrote: “Small world!! Great to catch up with these two Leg Ends in Dublin.

“@therealjohnaltman and Todd are in The Mousetrap at @gaiety_theatre and I’m at @bordgaisenergytheatre with @myfairladyuk.”

EastEnders fans went wild for snap, with one writing: “Great photo of three classic Eastenders actors. Miss seeing you all on screen together.”

Another posted: “Three great EastEnders legends right there.”

A third added: “I loved seeing this picture brings back so many memories of you all in EastEnders.”

Last week, Adam shared a photo while in Dublin as he put on his My Fair Lady outfit and stared into the camera lens.

With beard on show, he wrote: “DUBLIN… it’s Doolittle time!!”

Adam’s latest photos come after the actor’s divorce was finalised after 22 years of marriage to his wife Beverley Sharp.

Bev is said to be delighted with the settlement after standing her ground in negotiations.

Adam, who is one of soap’s most recognisable faces, has played Albert Square’s Ian Beale since 1985 but is now on an extended break from the BBC soap.

Last month, a friend of Bev’s said: “Bev and Adam are now officially divorced.

“As well as being his wife, Bev was also his manager for about a dozen years and she did so much for his career.

“She rejected some of the settlement offers she was sent during the process and now she’s glad she held her ground — she is delighted with the settlement.

“She still has no idea why he left her but that’s all in the past. She’s very upbeat and sees it as a new chapter. I’ve no doubt Bev will find someone new soon. She’s in a good place.”

The actor now lives in a £100,000 motorhome as he pursues his stage career and he revealed that as he prepared for his opening performance in Bradford he was living in the Yorkshire countryside.

Adam parked his home on wheels in a farmer’s field – right next to a herd of cows in the rolling Yorkshire countryside.
