I never do this, but progress is progress. Just don't take me seriously.

Another wrote: "What a transformation! You're looking great!" while a third added: "You look amazing, Harry!"

Harry has been replaced by Waterloo Road star Max Bowden.

Tweeting Max to congratulate him on bagging the role, Harry wrote: "@MaxBowden Mate, just wanted to wish you the best of the luck.

"Re-casting can be hard on us, but they will grow to love you! Enjoy Ben as much as I did! Welcome to the Clan...I anoint you Ben the 6th."

Max replied: "Mate thank you so much, that honestly means a hell of a lot. I hope I can give it as much brilliance as you did."

Earlier this year, Harry opened up about leaving the soap.

He told the Metro: "The one message I did want to put out there is that it has been so touching that my fanbase has been so supportive. They're upset because they think I'm upset but I can assure them that I'm not.

"Every actor puts their own slant on a character - what will happen is that the audience will fall in love with a new version on Ben and I hope that continues.

"I come into this game to play different parts - not to play one for my whole life. It just means that the door is properly closed - but there are other doors."
