EastEnders star Matt Lapinskas is now a builder – with the actor offering fans free quotes on Instagram

EASTENDERS star Matt Lapinskas has swapped Albert Square for a construction site as he promoted his builder business on Instagram.

The actor is known for playing Anthony Moon in the BBC soap from 2011 to 2012 and for his stint on 2013's Dancing On Ice alongside skating pro Brianne Delcourt.

But aside from his life infront of the camera, the 31-year-old revealed he has his another string to his bow – his own building firm called Brightside Builders.

The TV star has set up an Instagram for his construction business to showcase the projects he has been working on – and is even offering fans free building quotes.

Speaking on his building firm's Instagram Story last night, the soap star beamed: "So guys if you're looking for any work being done at your property then don't hesitate to give us a message and enquire.

"Happy to come around and give you a free quote.

"And also stay happy guys enjoy life and yeah keep it real, Sunday, happy day, all day," he concluded while dressed in a black beanie.

His work Instagram currently has 72 followers and showcases his work from new garden fences to carpet replacement.

Matt appeared on EastEnders from 2011 to 2012 as Anthony Moon and his character left to work on a cruise ship.

During his time on the soap, Matt famously dated his co-star Shona McGarty but split while he participated in 2013's Dancing On Ice.

Talking about his break-up from Shona at the time, he said: "I would have still done the show even though it’s cost me my relationship.

"It’s the show I wanted to do.

"People break up every day and it’s one of those things that came to an end.
Me and Shona know the ins and outs of our relationship and that’s the way
it’s going to stay.

"That’s life. We are in the media limelight and it is publicised. I think my relationship is quite private, stuff has happened and it’s one of
those things."

Since leaving the soap, Matt has starred in films The Seven and Dead Ringer.
