EastEnders Gus Smith star unrecognisable 15 years after emotional BBC soap exit

EastEnders actor Mohammed George looks completely different in hunky social media snaps 15 years after leaving the BBC One soap.

The actor made his debut as fan favourite Gus Smith in 2002 and played the role for six years until his exit in 2006.

He fell in love with Sonia Fowler (Natalie Jackson) during his time in Walford and also found himself embroiled in a feud with Sean Slater (Robert Kazinsky).

Gus was left heartbroken after he caught his partner Keisha (Suzie McGrath) in bed with Sean, his lodger.

After announcing what Sean did to everyone in the pub, Gus attempted to evict Sean but was instead kicked out himself.

Sean threatened to kill him Gus and tricked him into believing he had killed and eaten Wellard the dog.

After reuniting with Kiesha, Gus decided to leave Albert Square to travel with her band.

He also managed to get revenge on Sean before leaving by exposing him as a cocaine dealer.

Since leaving EastEnders, Mohammed has become a full-time DJ playing in clubs across the United Kingdom.

He has posed for some topless snaps showing off his ripped physique.

In June 2016, he was nominated for best actor alongside Idris Elba, Shone Romulus, and Emmanuel Imani at the 2016 British Urban Film festival for his role in Murder Capital a short film written and directed by Rob Woods.

In the early days of his career, Mohammed played small roles in The Bill and Holby City before finally landing his first major acting job on EastEnders.

EastEnders marks its 38th anniversary on Sunday (February 19).

The BBC One soap left fans in shock last week when it dropped a shock new trailer promising life-altering events for a number of the show’s most iconic women.

Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean), Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), Denise Fox (Diane Parish) and Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) all appear in the short teaser, each describing either the buildup or the aftermath of what appears to be a traumatic life-shattering event.

Fans have been desperate to find out more about what this life-shattering event could be, with some reckoning that a fash-forward episode is on the cards.

EastEnders writer Daran Little promised viewers that his next offering of the soap is something "a little bit different", which has sparked further speculation.

EastEnders airs Monday to Thursday on BBC One at 7.30pm
