One fan wrote: “Brilliant photo guys! Small world indeed. Love that ‘Max’ and ‘Ian’ would probably avoid each other at King’s Cross, but Jake and Adam will have a laugh and take a great selfie.

“Miss you both on EastEnders, not the same without either of you.”

A second fan wrote: “Yes, two legends.”

Another said: “Great pic guys.”

Earlier this year, Jake filmed his final scenes at EastEnders and in February, Max left Walford.

In June, Jake announced he would be performing in a play called 2:22 A Ghost Story alongside Lily Allen, Julia Chain and Hadley Fraser.

Has Adam Woodyatt left EastEnders?

Meanwhile Adam still plays Ian Beale on the soap, however he is currently off-screen.

Back in January, Ian discovered that his wife Sharon was trying to poison him. This was because she found out about Ian’s part in her son Dennis’s death.

However Sharon was unable to go through with killing Ian, who she had been friends with since she was a child.
