The young actor showcased his new look on Instagram to his 38K followers.

But others were gushing over the star’s transformation.

One said: “Looks much better young man.”

A second added: “Loving the hair cut its cute it suits u.”

Shaheen’s character Shakil has had a pretty tough time during his time on the BBC soap recently.

Last month viewers saw the teenager involved in a fight with Keegan Baker over a revenge scandal involving on-screen ex-girlfriend Bex Fowler.

In the latest episode that aired last night fans of the show were left wondering if Shakil’s brother Kush would survive the horror crash after Michelle smashed into the fish and chip shop.
