What did EastEnders star Adam Woodyatt say?

Adam spoke to hosts Alex Jones and Ronan Keating from his idyllic motorhome.

Explaining his surroundings, he said: “Well I am off to do a theatre tour.

“I was supposed to start it in January, then it was April, then it was June, finally we are starting in July, in Leicester, before going all around the country, all the way up until the end of October.”

The actor admitted: “I don’t know that’s the honest answer. The tour at the moment runs until the end October and my daughter’s then getting married in America so I’m off there to do that.

“There’s a possibility – and I really hope that does happen – the tour carries on will run until the early part of next year to pick up the dates we’ve had to postpone because of the lockdown.”

Furthermore, Adam said: “So, if the tour carries on, I’m not going to be back on EastEnders until sometime 2022 at the earliest! Sorry!”

How did viewers react?

Meanwhile, The One Show viewers praised Adam for taking a break from the much-loved soap.

One said: “To be fair to @AdamWoodyatt, he’s done EastEnders for over 35 years without a significant break. And it’s not as if he’s not working. Good on you, sir.”

A second added: “Real talk @AdamWoodyatt deserves his extensive break… he has been working since 1985. I miss him in the soap but yeah take your rest. See in 2022.”

In addition, a third wrote: “Adam Woodyatt clearly in no hurry back to #EastEnders then. Even his ‘sometime in 2022 at the earliest’ sounded quite non-committal #theoneshow.”

But it appears some fans couldn’t help but comment on Adam’s figure.

One pointed out: “Wow Adam Woodyatt looks well on #TheOneShow. Lost loads of weight but looks better for it.”

Adam Woodyatt is looking very well

Another shared: “@AdamWoodyatt is looking very well. Obviously loving his break away from TV.”

A third praised: “@AdamWoodyatt Looking great!”
