I'm A Celeb fans caught their first glimpse of Adam during their introduction packages after hosts Ant and Dec introduced them both.
Adam was heard saying: "I’m Adam Woodyatt and I’m probably best known for being a resident of Albert Square and playing Ian Beale for 37 years."
After reeling off his fears, including snakes and rats, he joked: "I’m gonna be about as much use as a chocolate teapot."
Before his appearance on the show, the 53-year-old, who was one of the original characters in EastEnders when it launched in 1985, spoke of his excitement and why he's finally agreed to appear.
"I’ve known about doing I’m A Celebrity for a long time and I can’t wait to go in now. I don’t mind if I am first or last in the castle – I am just really looking forward to being on the show," he said.
"Why have I finally said yes? Because I am not in EastEnders. That is the honest answer. I am not in contract with the BBC so I can come and do it.
"Everyone thinks I am Ian Beale and so it’s going to be great to show I am not."
But upon seeing him on screen, fans were stunned by Adam's new look.
@Auntiepamsy tweeted: "#ImACeleb Wow has Adam Woodyat been in waiting at the castle dungeon for a few weeks already? He’s a shadow of his former self?!"
"Just going to throw it out there but Ian Beale is looking fantastic #ImACeleb," @misscatxxxx added.
@_Mxarzz said: "Wiiit is that Ian beale?? He's lost soo much weight!! #ImACeleb."
"Is that really Ian Beale? Been so long since I’ve watched a recent Eastenders clip. Looks like a different person," @DFTPNK02 commented.
@0X1WON screamed: "IAN BEALE LOOKS SO DIFFERENT OMG."
