EastEnders star playing schoolboy bully Logan hits back after viewers learn his REAL (much older) age… but his racy 18+ Instagram should’ve been the fans’ first clue

EastEnders star Liam Hatch has hit back after being mocked about his new role as schoolboy bully Logan.

The actor’s intense storyline saw him and his gang of pals orchestrate and film an attack on Denzel Danes (Jaden Ladega) after he stood up for his girlfriend Amy Mitchell (Ellie Dadd).

But rather than talking about the violent scenes, fans couldn’t get past Liam’s much older appearance than his co-stars, joking that he ‘couldn’t be taken seriously as a teenager’ and ‘puberty had to do him like’ a brick.’

In reality, Liam is 27 years old, so more than a decade older than the character he plays.

Taking to his Instagram page on Monday, the actor – whose social media is full of racy semi-clothed and nude photos – addressed the criticism when he highlighted one viral tweet which read: ‘Almost sure this school boy sold me my mortgage …’

Sharing screen grabs from the show, Liam said: ‘The most talked about bully on the street. Ps… I don’t sell mortgages.’

Viewers flooded X, formerly Twitter, with jokes about Logan’s age, sharing: ‘He looks well older than a schoolboy doesn’t he’; The British version of the film Grease’; ‘That’s my father’; “Dad’s back to class!”

‘There’s no way that’s a schoolboy, he looks about 30’; “He looks easily twice Denzel’s age.”; “Did we finally find Callum’s real dad?”; ‘Puberty must have hit him like a brick at 10 how is he meant to be a teenager seriously #EastEnders’;

‘IRL he’s been an adult for a decade!’; ‘Didn’t hold him back much’; ‘The fact that this big strong geezer needed a stage school gang backup is so funny to me.’; ‘This is hilarious! He really looks 30 years +, the original actor got sick and one of the crew stepped in!’;

‘Surely it must be something like imagine if EE actually cast this full grown guy AIM to play a teenager?’; ‘Why is this school kid like 30’; ‘He’s 27 IRL’;

‘Why is this 44-year-old man walking around in a school uniform fighting with the local kids? #EastEnders’; ‘Bro…who cast this guy as a kid in Eastenders? Surely this guy has kids and a family?’

Fans will have to get used to Liam though, as his role is far from over.

In upcoming EastEnders scenes, viewers will see how Logan’s attack continues to affect Denzel, who will become obsessed with fitness.

His obsession is fueled when Ravi Gulati (Aaron Thiara) takes Denzel and Nugget Gulati (Juhaim Rasul Choudhury) to The Boxing Den to help them work out their emotions through physicality.

EastEnders fans will soon see a familiar face as Karen Taylor will return to Albert Square after fleeing Walford after taking the blame for her grandson Albie’s kidnapping.

Karen, played by Lorraine Stanley (47), left last month to start a new life with Mitch Baker (Roger Griffiths) and their children.

in new photos, Karen can be seen walking through Walford as she returns in search of her son Keanu.

Karen immediately finds an enemy in Phil Mitchell (Steve McFadden) upon her return, as he demands back the stolen £500k kidnapping ransom.

Her return is much to the horror of Linda Carter (Kellie Bright), Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner), Kathy Beale (Gillian Taylforth) and Suki Panesar (Balvinder Sopal), Denise Fox (Diane Parish) and Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) who was involved in his Christmas Day murder.

Karen has no idea her son died after being stabbed by Linda when he strangled Sharon on Christmas Day.
