Rob, best known for playing Sean Slater in the BBC soap, took to Instagram last month to share a glimpse at his new look as he opened up about his fitness plans, branding himself a fat b*****d’.
He shared another video to the social media site on Wednesday once again sporting a shaved head as he continued to speak about his health and fitness goals.
In a lengthy caption, Rob told how he is planning to get into ‘superhero shape’ for a mystery new job and promised to keep fans updated along the way.

He shared shirtless snaps of himself and revealed his current weight before giving an insight in his plans for his fitness journey, insisting he will do it ‘without drugs’ as he slammed ‘fake’ miracle solutions.
Rob wrote: ‘So, here we go. You’re gonna be seeing a fair bit more activity over the next few months, and it’s the kind of activity and vanity I steadfastly avoid.
#Fitness S**t. Im going to try and avoid self defeating embarrassment and general autistic self destruction as much as possible and not die of shame.
‘Here is day one, my starting off point. I weight 220lbs, I’m at 19.7 per cent body fat.
‘I turn 40 in a few months and one thing I’ve learned is that it’s getting harder and harder every single day to train and recover, I can’t do things like I did in my 20s, so what’s the plan?
‘Well, I have a great job coming up if the strikes come to an end and I’ve decided to get into superhero shape, without drugs, without PEDs, without help, just a 40 year old fat b*****d making do with what I have still going for me.
‘So we will start here as I figure this out. And we will do check ups, and updates and hopefully soon I’ll be able to tell you what it’s for.
‘Got the best boxing trainer in London in @lexual_healing_pt helping me become not only the best boxer I can be, but in the best shape this sack of potatoes can get into, come see him at @camdenboxing and get into the sport of champions.

‘This isn’t an ad, they ain’t paying me, there’s no endorsements here, I won’t be offering any. I’ll just say what I see and can’t wait to finally get back into the shape I was in back in the Kaiju fighting days.’
In a video shared this week, Rob told how he has had a ‘tricky few months’ kicking off his fitness journey and criticised ‘fake’ people for pushing ‘miracle solutions’ online.
‘I’m turning 40 in a couple of months and my entire life I’ve struggled with my weight, I like eating, I’m just a big guy.
‘I’ve never been able to get into the kind of shape I want to get into, I’m not built like some of these other guys. The main reason I never was is because I don’t take drugs or any kind of fat burners or anything, even though I work out five days a week.
‘The majority of bodies you see on Instagram, saying ‘you could look like this just do this one thing’, they are not natural. They’re not, it’s impossible to get into that kind of shape without assistance.
‘So I want to see how far I can get at 40, naturally, having never taken those kinds of drugs, what kind of body will I end up with if I do everything right for three to five to six months?
‘I’m going to tell you what I’m doing, what I’m eating and what injuries I’m getting along the way. So stay tuned, if that interests you and we’ll see what kind of trouble I get into.’
In an accompanying caption, he added: ‘Sorry for lack of posts and updates, it’s been a tricky few months since I started trying to get in shape, also, I don’t know how to internet.
‘I’m not hiring PR firms or videographers or doing this in a professional manner, I’m not getting paid to post or to push anything, I’m fed up of fake fitness people pushing fake miracle solutions because they get a kickback from whomever.
‘So, from here, I’ll post it as I learn how to internet, and we’ll see if any of the mistakes I make help you avoid them.’

Rob first graced the streets of Walford as Sean Slater in 2006 before leaving EastEnders for the first time in 2006.
He went on to briefly return in 2019 in which a mental health storyline saw his character contemplate taking his own life.
An intervention from his mum caused Sean to admit himself to a mental health facility while promising to return in time to take his former stepdaughter Amy Mitchell to her late mum Roxy’s bar in Ibiza for her 18th birthday.
And he once again made a soap opera comeback in 2021, returning to EastEnders once again to help Stacey deal with her relationship with Eve Unwin, before another appearance last year.
