It looks like Ian Beale may be returning to The Square.

The cafe boss has been missing since his failed wedding to Mandy Salter last month and was last seen walking down the side of a motorway in his pyjamas.

According to the Daily Star, actor Adam Woodyatt reportedly returned to the set of the BBC soap last week and has shocked co-stars with his new look.

A show told the newspaper: "Ian is unrecognisable. He's dishevelled, has long hair and a long beard. He looks like a proper tramp.

"Viewers will discover that since he left he's been living rough on the streets of London and has even become friends with other beer-drinking vagrants. It's a shocking storyline.

"A lot of the cast and crew couldn't believe Adam's amazing transformation."
