Ian Beale Eastenders

The Eastenders actor has slimmed down thanks to his training for the London Marathon.

Adam Woodyatt is known for his long running role as Ian Beale on Eastenders, but last night as he appeared on The One Show ahead of his London Marathon attempt on Sunday he looked TOTALLY different!

The actor revealed that he has been on a carb free diet in preparation for the 26 miles he will run across London on Sunday alongside thousands of other runners.

The veteran soap star is running the marathon with his son, Sam, 19, in aid of The Air Ambulance Service after Sam was hit by a vehicle while crossing the road.

He was air lifted to hospital and put in an induced coma before going into surgery for five hours which resulted in him being wheelchair bound for months.

Adam wrote about the accident last year in a post online and said: “The London Air Ambulance responded, treated him at roadside, put him into an induced coma and took him to the Royal London Hospital. The operation to put him back together took five hours.”

Viewers of The One Show took to Twitter to express their shock at Adam's new athletic transformation...

We'll look forward to hearing how he gets on at the marathon on Sunday!
