EastEnders star Shiv Jalota has caused a stir amongst fans after sharing a holiday snap on social media.
The 27-year-old, who plays Vinny Panesar in the BBC One soap, has given Instagram followers an insight into his Greek vacation, and they can’t get enough.
In his latest photo, the soap actor stands on the slipway of a boat against a dreamy sea view in Dysalonas St George, Symi.
Shiv looks worlds away for his EastEnders character as he poses wearing only red swimwear and flaunting his ripped torso, teamed with a baseball cap.
He captioned the image: “Blinded by the light with a belly full of Ice cream hummus and moussaka.”
Fellow EastEnders co-stars were first to comment on the snap with Zack Morris (Keegan Baker) saying: “Mr Gains.”
Gurlaine Kaur Garcha (Ash Panesar) asked: “Where’s Shiv gone”, before adding: “PHWOAAAARRRRRRR.”
Fans of the star also left flurries of compliments with one person commenting: “Wow look at you.”
“Wow, very, very handsome and gorgeous!!!!” added another.
“Fit as. Need to see you shirtless in EastEnders,” wrote one impressed fan.
Shiv Jalota joined EastEnders in October 2019 as Vinny, the youngest brother of the Panesar family.
As the apple of his mum, Suki’s, eye Vinny gets away with misbehaviour, including dodging prison after hitting Martin Fowler over the head during a robbery.
He’s currently in love with Dotty Cotton and trying to launch a career as DJ.
EastEnders continues every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday on BBC One.
