Hollyoaks star John Pickard looked completely different 11 years after leaving the show.
The soap actor famously played Dominic Reilly from 2005 to 2010 and even showed up in Hollyoaks Later.

Fellow co-star Will Mellor, who played James Bolton in the soap, recently shared a snap of the three having a catch-up.
“So good to see these boys tonight!” he wrote on Instagram. “Time goes by but when you get together it means so much!! @nickpickardhollyoaks @johnnyinapickle #friends #oldschool #hollyoaks #goodolddays #goodtimes.”
Alongside the caption was a sweet photo of all three men, Nick, John and Will, with their hands around each other as they posed for the camera.
John hasn’t been on Hollyoaks in over 10 years so it’s no surprise he looks a little different.
Fans were just as shocked at the difference while some were simply happy to see the trio together.
“The original legends and the best,” one user commented.
Another reminisced: ” remember watching John as a kid in 2point4 Children.”
Meanwhile, one fan thought Nick looked exactly the same and wrote: “Tony hasn’t changed 1 bit.”
His brother John moved on from Hollyoaks act in Screen Two, Grange Hill, EastEnders, 2point4 Children, The Bill.
