Ellis, who has played Tom Cunningham in the Channel 4 soap for what feels like forever, revealed the results of his impressive body transformation during lockdown, telling followers to “watch this space”.
Both Ellis’ fans and his Hollyoaks co-stars showed their support for his new look, with the likes of Jessica Fox (Nancy Hayton), Aedan Duckworth (Oliver Morgan), and Rory Douglas-Speed (Joel Dexter) commenting on the photo.
“*shoves another doughnut into mouth* You and I have approached lockdown in very different ways,” Jessica wrote, while Aedan said the actor looked “unreal”. “Holy F**k man!!! You look [amazing]!” Rory added.
Our favourite comment comes from Ellis’ former co-star and onscreen brother Matt Littler, who said: “But… you’re 4?” To which Ellis replied, “But… you’re dead?” Ouch.
