Shaheen logged into his Instagram account last month to share some holiday snaps from his trip to Ibiza.

He showed off his dramatic short blonde hair as she posed for the camera wearing a black t-shirt and denim jeans.

In another post, the TV star shared more pictures from his time away on the party island.

One photograph showed him sitting on a rock as she playfully looked away from the camera.

Shaheen's EastEnders charatcer Shakil was killed off as part of a high-profile knife crime storyline produced in partnership with Brooke Kinsella MBE, a former EastEnders actress whose brother was murdered after being stabbed.

Shakil's pal Keegan Baker (Zack Morris) stole a bike from a gang of teens who later tracked down the pair with Bruno going on to stab both of the boys, leaving them to die in the alleyway near the Queen Vic pub.

Shakil left the alleyway to find help for him where landlord Mick Carter (Danny Dyer) found him and thought he was drunk so turned him down.

Later, Mick went outside in the alleyway to find Keegan stabbed on the floor and rushes the young lad to hospital, unaware that Shakil had also been stabbed.

Shakil is finally found by Kathy Beale (Gillian Tayflorth) and Masood Ahmed (Nitin Ganatra) lying in the bushes, with his back bleeding from the stab wound.

He was rushed to hospital but died later due to losing too much blood, leaving fans heartbroken.

Before joining EastEnders, Shaheen appeared on the third series of Britain's Got Talent where he wowed judges Simon Cowell, Amanda Holden and Piers Morgan.

He finished in sixth place and went on to sing a musical tribute of Who's Lovin' You at the globally televised funeral memorial service for Michael Jackson.

He had been originally invited to perform with Jackson in his This Is It series of London concerts.
