EastEnders actors Max, 27, and Jamie, 28, could be seen posing for a selfie alongside their co-star Danielle Harold.

Max, who plays Ben Mitchell, and Jamie, who plays Jay Brown, smiled for the camera before heading out for the night.

The pair were seen dancing, swaying, snapping their fingers and tapping their feet as they sang together at a karaoke bar.

They seemed to be channeling the dance moves that their co-star James – who plays Martin Fowler – who is no doubt busy practicing dance moves before his Strictly appearance.

“Don’t worry about us, we don’t need an audience,” Max captioned the videos, as he and Jamie rocked out to the music.

It comes after it was revealed that Martin Fowler actor James, 38, will star in the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The EastEnders star actually hinted he would be on the show two years ago – during a TV appearance on Lorraine.

Speaking to Lorraine in 2020, he said: ‘Would I consider [Strictly] yes, my friend Davood did it but I’m not as fit as him. I have old wobbly knees, sounds like fun.

Today, the TV star was the 14th and final contestant confirmed for Strictly’s upcoming 20th series.

The actor was unveiled live on ITV’s Good Morning Britain outside the BBC’s fictional Walford East tube station.

He admitted he had known for “quite a long time” but the news had “not really sunk in yet” and was “really nervous”.

Speaking of his wife Victoria, he added: “She’s really supportive. She’s always really supportive in everything I do.

“We talked about it until the end. It’s a decision we made together.

“I think she’s going to be part of the team. I think she’s going to teach me more than the dancers, to be honest. She knows what she’s doing.”
