The child who played Ben Mitchell on EastEnders is unrecognisable now

He's now almost 21-years-old and his appearance is a lot different.

You probably remember Charlie Jones as one of the many actors to play Ben Mitchell on EastEnders.

The mechanic has been played by a total of five people in the show, but Charlie's stint between 2006 and 2010 is remembered well by viewers.

It saw the actor delivering a powerful depiction of abuse at the hands of Phil's then-girlfriend, Stella Crawford, and a storyline in which he, his father and Ian Beale were involved in an infamous £1 million car crash.

Despite leaving the show Charlie maintains an interested in acting and is currently training at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts in London.

And he also looks a lot different now from how you might remember him. As evidenced by his Instagram account.

They grow up so fast, don't they?
