The actor, 20, looks nothing like his character Tom Cunningham in the hit series, as he revealed his impressive rock-hard abs.
The young boy that first appeared in the E4 soap in December 1999 has grown up in front of our eyes, and it’s safe to say he looks far from little Tom.
Taking to Instagram to remind fans that he’s not actually a toddler anymore, Ellis ditched his T-shirt to show off his abs in a cheeky mirror selfie.
Flexing his abs and biceps in the snap, Ellis sent fans wild.
Sharing the snap with his 93.6k Instagram followers, he wrote: “Watch this space..”
Fans rushed to the comments section after they were left in disbelief that it was actually him.
One fan joked: “But…. you’re 4?”
Another wrote: “When Tf did that happen????”
A third penned: “My how you have grown, from that cute young boy to a handsome young man, go Ellis.”
While another added: “No that’s just wrong you’re little Tom!” alongside a laughing emoji.
Ellis has played Tom on-screen for the whole of the character’s time in the soap – and is still on the show now after joining the cast back in 2003.
And even his fellow Hollyoaks cast mates couldn’t resist to comment on the impressive snap.
Jessica Fox – who plays Nancy Hayton on the hit soap – joked: “Shoves another doughnut into mouth* You and I have approached lockdown in very different ways…”
While Malique Thompson wrote: “Looking sick bro.”
Rory Douglas Speed – who plays Joel Dexter – penned: “Holy F**k man!!! You look amassing!!”
Ellis’ time on the soap has seen him become involved in many important storylines over the years.
The biggest was the death of Little Tom’s parents Gordon and Helen Cunningham, who were tragically killed in a car crash.
His character even suffered abuse as a kid in a tragic twist of fate.
Recently, Tom impregnated his teenage girlfriend Peri Lomax – played by Ruby O’Donnel.
But it was when Peri decided to give their baby up for adoption that rocked Tom’s world.
