The actor played Max Branning for 15 years before quitting the soap last year.
But he has remained close with his co-stars and last night (August 5) reunited with Scott, who plays his brother Jack Branning.
The pair were joined by Scott’s music producer wife Estelle Rubio.

EastEnders reunions aplenty
Jake makes quite the habit of running into old co-stars and taking selfies.
He recently delighted fans are spotting old pal Adam Woodyatt, Ian Beale himself, at a station.
He captioned the post: “Bumped into this legend at King’s Cross this morning @adamwoodyatt. Yeah that’s right, we’re theatre bods now.”
Jake’s followers were thrilled to see the two together.
One fan wrote: “Brilliant photo guys! Small world indeed. Love that ‘Max’ and ‘Ian’ would probably avoid each other at King’s Cross, but Jake and Adam will have a laugh and take a great selfie.
“Miss you both on EastEnders, not the same without either of you.”
A second fan wrote: “Yes, two legends.”
Another said: “Great pic guys.”

Jake quit the soap last year – and there’s no sign of him returning as Max Branning.
In his absence it was revealed that Linda Carter was carrying his daughter – now a baby called Annie.
And with Rainie Cross’ exit, there is no reason for Max to return to the Square.
EastEnders usually airs weeknights at 7.30pm on BBC One.
