EastEnders : Secrets from the Square viewers were left aghast during tonight’s episode as they saw a staggering Martin Fowler throwback.
Soap actor James Bye, 36, was on tonight’s episode of the spin-off show, hosted by Stacey Dooley.
He was joined by co-star Davood Ghadami, who plays Kush Kazemi, with the pair watched past clips of their time on the popular BBC show.
After playing a video of when James first joined the soap, the actor and viewers were gobsmacked at how different he looked.
One fan tweeted: “Martin has changed so much.”
While another wrote: “Aww baby Martin.”
“Omg, James Bye looked so young when he was 1st in EastEnders! I’m enjoying the clips with him and Kush” added a third.
The soap made headlines recently after viewers were convinced Gray Atkins has murdered his wife Chantelle.
Fans are sure that the truth will come to light in post-lockdown episodes after the BBC released behind-the-scenes footage showing the cast members safely returning to the set.
In one scene, Gray, played by Toby-Alexander Smith, was seen turning his temper to Chantelle’s mum, Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley), but Chantelle (Jessica Kate Plummer) was nowhere to be seen in the shot.
This sparked to speculation over whether Gray’s twisted and abusive behaviour had resulted in devastating consequences for Chantelle.
One fan tweeted: “”If Gray k*lled Chantelle… No ma’am.”
While another wrote: “More convinced Chantelle is a goner! The actress got new headshots & we all know what that means…Lorraine Stanley is saying Karen has a dark story coming up.
“I also don’t see Chantelle leaving Gray & him just going to prison or coming back for some revenge plot which sees him die as It’s all been done before.”
“Karen’s dark storyline will probably be her joining the ‘Bereaved Parents of Albert Square’ club.
“Ian, Sharon and Max will welcome her in after Gray beats her daughter Chantelle just a little bit too hard next time. Just a hunch.” added a third.
EastEnders continues tomorrow at 7.25pm on BBC1
