The actor often posts pictures to his Instagram from his job.
In one he’s wearing a high-vis jacket and a hard hat.
He captioned the image: “Bob the builder.”
Fans rushed to comment to on the post.
One wrote: “Lovely pic of you.”
A second said: “Looking good my dude.”
One fan asked: “Do you do construction now?” to which James replied: “Yeah.”
“Respect,” said the commenter.
James played Liam from 2008 until 2015.
Liam is the son of Ricky Butcher and Bianca Jackson.
Before his departure, Liam developed a crush on Cindy Williams and was shocked when he found out she was pregnant.
However, it was revealed Liam’s stepbrother TJ Spraggan was the baby’s father, leaving Liam heartbroken.
Bianca later decided to move to Milton Keynes with Liam, her daughter Tiffany, her youngest son Morgan, her boyfriend Terry Spraggan and Terry’s children TJ and Rosie.
But Liam didn’t want to leave and his mum eventually gave him permission to stay in Walford.
Terry made a return to collect Cindy’s daughter with TJ, Beth, after Cindy decided she couldn’t look after her.
Eventually Liam and Cindy became a couple and ended up moving to Germany to live with Ricky in 2015.
In 2016, Tiffany and Morgan returned to Walford for their adoptive sister Whitney’s wedding to Lee Carter, however Bianca and Liam didn’t return.
Tiffany returned to live in Walford back in 2018 and last year, Bianca made a brief return for Whitney’s wedding to Callum Highway, which didn’t go to plan.
Although James has since left the soap, it appears he still keeps in contact with his EastEnders family.
Last year, Maisie Smith, who plays Tiffany, posted a picture of herself and James at an event.
She captioned the post: “Das my big bro x.”
