EASTENDERS Masood Ahmed actor Nitin Ganatra looks unrecognisable three years after quitting the BBC show.
The soap star quit the programme three years ago – but is now back on our screens this weekend as part of Celebrity Antiques Road Trip on Sunday night.
Nitin, 55, played Masood from 2007-2016 and again from 2018-2019.
The soap star's alter-ego went through some very memorable storylines, including struggling to accept his son's sexuality and his affair with Jane Beale.
His cheating ways meant that he split from his wife Zainab, and later went on to have flings with Carol Jackson, Cathy Beale and Carmel Kazemi.
Masood left the Square in 2016, but EastEnders fans were over the moon when he returned a year later.
