Hollyoaks star Ellis Hollins has shown off his body transformation with a pair of shirtless pictures, showing how far he has come with his training in the last year.
The Tom Cunningham actor captioned the photos: “So glad I’ve gone from Mr. Blobby to what you can see on the right picture from today.
“Last year I’d have never had the confidence to upload my nipples and I on social media, but these past months have given me so much confidence to be myself, and stop myself from being so self conscious, with @mazfreshpt helping me every step of the way i’m on route to being the person I finally want to be.”
Multiple Hollyoaks stars past and present showed their support for Ellis in the Instagram comments, including Charlie Clapham (Freddie Roscoe), Ijaz Rana (Imran Malik) and Luke Jerdy (Jesse Donovan), who pointed out that Ellis looks great in both photos. Too right!
“You certainly weren’t Mr Blobby before mate!” Luke wrote. “All about that confidence though.”
Ellis, who turned 19 last November, has been in the Channel 4 soap since he was three years old, which is crazy.
Now that Ellis is an adult, though, his character is getting some meatier stories in the soap too, like Tom’s polyamorous relationship with Harley Frater and Peri Lomax.
The star recently spoke to Digital Spy about that story, as well as what he wants Tom to get up to in the future, what it’s like living in a house with two of his co-stars and what reality show he’d love to do.
Hollyoaks airs weeknights at 6:30pm on Channel 4, with first look episodes at 7pm on E4.
