EastEnders’ Jake Wood shows off his athletic figure in black gym wear as he heads out on a run… after returning to Albert Square to resume filming

He recently returned to the EastEnders set after filming was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

But Jake Wood took a break from Albert Square as he headed out on a run in north London on Wednesday.

The actor, 47, who plays Max Branning on the soap, showed off his athletic figure in black Nike sportswear.

Jake donned a black baseball cap and long shorts for the jog and tied a rain jacket around his waist.

The soap star looked like he was working up a sweat as he ran down the high street listening to music. 

Jake is seasoned runner and completed the London Marathon in 2019, raising money for Dementia Revolution alongside Barbara Windsor’s husband Scott Mitchell.

At the end of last month, Jake revealed CGI is being used in almost every shot for new episodes of EastEnders.  

The actor said the new filming measures to ensure actors are socially distant are ‘extraordinary’.

The star spoke to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain after his first day back on set.  

Jake said: ‘It’s going to take a bit of getting used to. We’re all socially distant so everyone is two metres apart. It’s quite extraordinary the way were shooting it, the way we’re filming it.’

‘They’ve been there for weeks working out the way to do it. We’ve seen some of the stuff they’ve shot, it’s very very clever. You’re not going to notice a difference as a viewer. 

‘Almost every shot has got CGI in it.’

Jake then joked he would love it if he could stay at home while a CGI version of him is acting on set.

He also revealed that sex scenes are unlikely to appear in the new episodes while they film during the pandemic.

The star said: ‘They’re looking at ways to film it so people can appear to be kissing.

‘Like anything at the moment, it’s going to be a challenge.’  

Unlike Emmerdale, EastEnders has decided not to make coronavirus a main theme of the new episodes after filming resumed yesterday following a hiatus from March.

The last show went out on June 16, the first time the soap has gone off-air in its 35-year history.
