EastEnders' fans DIVIDED over Ian Beale's new makeover!

What do you think of his designer stubble?

Ian Beale's return from New Zealand caused something of a stir among EastEnders fans on Monday night - but it wasn't his argument with Masood over samosas that got people tweeting... it was his new makeover!

The Walford legend came back from visiting son Peter sporting some rather attention-grabbing facial hair - and also a new positive outlook on life.

Hmm, we wonder how long that will last for?
