EASTENDERS star Adam Woodyatt has shut down his management firm after it lost its only client… himself.
The 52-year-old soap star – who has moved into a £93k motor home – formed the talent agency with his ex-wife Beverley Sharp.
She masterminded his career and negotiated panto deals and his six-figure EastEnders pay packet.
But after splitting from Beverley, he’s now pulled the plug on the firm’s website.
XL – based in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire – offered “personal management service” and the one-page website gave an email address for actor submissions.
But the Ian Beale legend – currently taking a break from the soap to appear in a stage version of a Peter James crime drama – was the only star on the books.
And he’s now being represented by London-based firm QTalent.
XL is still listed as a firm on Companies House and in 2019 had a bottomline of almost £250,000.
The couple also ran a gin business together but have also ceased producing the booze.
The soap favourite launched £40 a bottle Neat gin in 2017.
And the booze received rave reviews from experts and punters alike – with the star even forging a deal to supply the grog to restaurants run by food icon Marco Pierre White.
But the firm struggled to earn cash and in 2019 made their final batch.
An industry source said: “It’s a shame because it was a popular product in online stores but clearly that didn’t add up to a profit for Adam.”
Last year it was revealed how Adam and Beverley – who have two children together – had split after 22 years of marriage.
The Sun has contacted Adam's representative for comment.
