What the actor who played EastEnders’ Bradley Branning looks like now

EastEnders viewers were left horrified in February 2010 when Walford sweetheart Bradley Branning plummeted to his death from the roof of The Queen Vic.

The character’s very dramatic exit formed part of the soap’s 25th anniversary special with an iconic live episode.

For those who need a quick reminder, or were too young to remember, Bradley was wrongfully accused of murdering villain Archie Mitchell.

As Bradley scaled the building of The Queen Vic trying to escape the police, he shouts to Stacey Slater to run, before losing his balance and falling to the ground in full view of other horrified residents.

Of course, it was Bradley’s ex-wife Stacey that had actually murdered Archie.

So more than a decade on since leaving EastEnders, what has actor Charlie Clements who played Bradley Branning been up to?
