Dec 25, 2022

EASTENDERS legend Michael Greco revealed he has a rather unlikely best pal.

The actor, famous for playing Albert Square tough nut Beppe Di Marco, posed with his friend Justin Fletcher – aka Mr Tumble.

Mr Tumble is one of the biggest names in kids' TV and instantly recognisable to millions of toddlers.

Michael wrote: "30 years ago we trained together at drama school. Still an awesome bloke. Love ya Justin ❤."

The pair were both at the prestigious Guildford School of Acting back in the early 1990s.

Michael of course went on to play Beppe in EastEnders from 1998 while Justin hosting GMTV's Fun Song Factory.

CBeebies star Justin, 52, plays a range of kids characters and got into TV with the help of Phillip Schofield.

He has fronted shows included Justin Time, Gigglebiz and provides the voice for Shaun the Sheep.

Michael meanwhile spent four years playing Beppe, staying on even after many of the Di Marco family were axed.

After the soap he appeared in Celebrity Love Island – the forerunner to the show we know today – Soapstar Superstar and had a role in Casualty.
