The EastEnders cast member, who plays Max Branning in the BBC soap, debuted a new beard on Instagram.
However, some fans weren’t feeling Jake Wood’s transformation.
The actor asked his 43,300 followers what they though as he posed for a selfie with his new facial fuzz.
He wrote: “Strong beard game. Likey or no likey?”
“I didn’t even recognise him”
And some of them certainly didn’t hold back with their opinions.
One slammed: “No likey, makes you look too old.”
While another added: “I didn’t even recognise him.”
A third chimed in: “No, no, no.”
While a fourth urged: “Keep to the stubble.”
Despite this, there were a few fans of his new beard.
One told him: “Ooh I like,” while another gushed: “So handsome.”
Jake is usually known to rock his statement stubble.
And it certainly seems many want him back to his usual look.
