Adam, who played Ian Beale in the BBC soap, wrote on social media: “This person is claiming to be my assistant. They are NOT. I do not have an assistant.

“Please ignore any messages from them relating to me.”

He also shared a picture of the account's bio, which read: "I love my family don't Dm me, love nature and photography, assistant to @Adamwoodyatt.

“Happily married mom, I don't accept followers."

One follower warned: “They have tried to get someone to pay a deposit for you to attend a charity football match.”
