Adam Woodyatt displayed the results of his recent weight loss as he showed off his slimm-down frame while stepping out of his BMW this week.
The EastEnders actor, 52, was seen without his wedding ring following his split from his wife of 22 years Beverley Sharp.
The TV star cut a casual figure for the outing, sporting a teal polo shirt along with a pair of blue jeans as he went for a stroll in Hertfordshire.

Adam, who plays Ian Beale on the soap, also sported a pair of trainers and looked in good spirits as he relaxed next to his swanky car.
Adam’s BMW is thought to be an 8 Series Coupe and would have set him back more than £70,000.
The soap star has been keeping a relatively low profile since the news of his split emerged last week.
It comes after Adam admitted to being fat-shamed by EastEnders fans who saw him in person.

Recalling one particularly hurtful experience, he told The Sun: ‘One of the best examples of somebody being rude is when we were at the BBC Good Food show.
‘This woman looks at me and says, “You’re fatter than you are on telly”.
The outing comes after Adam recently split from his wife Beverley Sharp after 22 years of marriage.
The couple separated in August of last year but it is thought that they have only now started telling friends about their decision.

A friend told The Sun that Beverley was ‘very upset’ at the split but added that it’s a ‘straightforward separation’.
They said: ‘Nobody plans for these things and divorce is a difficult thing to get your head around but they have dealt with it quietly for several months and are now telling friends so it’s less of a secret.
‘They still get on well, and are keen to make sure they stay that way for the sake of their children – even though they are now grown up.’
Adam and Beverley have been married since 1998 and have two children – Jessica, 27, and Samuel, 23.
A spokesperson for the actor said: ‘Beverley and Adam separated in August last year and we ask that the family’s privacy is respected.’

MailOnline has also contacted Adam’s representative for a comment.
It comes after reports that Adam was being ‘written out’ of EastEnders after playing Ian Beale for 35 years as he is taking an ‘extended break’ from the soap.
Adam was said to be having a prolonged ‘holiday’ with his part being ‘written out’ of upcoming episodes, just as the show returns to air.
The long-time character will be off screen for around 10 weeks due to an ‘explosive plot twist’, a BBC source has claimed, according to the Daily Star.
Another source added: ‘Writers are staying tight-lipped about what happens, so it’s not known yet what the future will hold for the character.’
