EASTENDERS star Danny Walters has revealed his dramatic body transformation from ‘dad bod’ to six pack.
The actor who plays Keanu Taylor in the BBC soap now says he “finally feels confident” having previously weighed 16 stone.
Before and after pictures posted by his personal trainer Harry Smith show the shocking transformation he went through over 12 weeks.
Danny, 24, said: “I feel like I’m starting to get in the best shape of my life. I will never stop improving.
“I finally feel confident in my body and feel like I am now on the right path to achieve greatness.
“As an actor working on TV and stage, I do multiple auditions a week and will be judged within the first five seconds I walk into the audition room.
“Now, I feel more confident in my own skin, I can walk into the audition and feel positive I am making a powerful first impression. “
The hunky actor achieved the body by working out six times a week, lifting weights and eating a certain amount of calories all whilst filming for EastEnders.
His PT Harry says he had treats as well as eating his ‘five a day’ of fruit and vegetables.
Earlier this year he took part in tough obstacle course Rat Race: Dirty Weekend consisting of a 20 mile run and 200 challenges and had been training “almost every day”.
In May, he said: “It’s tough.
“I’ve been training for a long time and almost every day, sometimes twice a day. I do body building, cross sticks and I go on long runs.

“Training isn’t that specific because we don’t exactly know which obstacles will be there. I also make sure I eat the right nutrients to support what I’m doing.
“I certainly wasn’t (fit) when I was about 15 or 16. In fact, I weighed 16 stone.
“I knew I had to change something about myself and I discovered fitness. It changed my life – and not just physically. Being fit gives me a real sense of well-being and it makes me feel mentally strong.”
