EASTENDERS legends Joe Absolom and Mark Homer look almost unrecognisable as they were reunited.
Almost 24 years after last appearing on screen together, the actors – who played Matthew Rose and Tony Hills – posed for a picture together earlier this week.
Joe, now 44, and Mark, 50, left fans of the soap overjoyed as they shared a reunion snap on social media.
The pair beamed as they enjoyed a catch up in each others company as they reminisced over their time on the BBC One soap.
Writing alongside a photo, which shows the former soap favourites beaming for the camera, Mark wrote: “Great catch up with my old mate Joe A. Where the hell have those 23 years gone?
"Beautiful reminisce about our time together on the square. @bbceastenders."
