Coronation Street star unrecognisable 18 years after Sarah Platt fling

Sushil Chudsama turned heads on Coronation Street in 2005 when he joined the soap as Scooter Makuna – and the star looks unrecognisable 18 years since his cobbles debut.

Fans of the ITV soap will remember that Scooter had a fondness for fish and was regularly seen bringing back junk items he had found.

He soon caught the eye of another Coronation Street resident not long after his arrival and became embroiled in a passionate affair with Sarah Platt.

However, it was soon revealed that Sarah had a fling with Jason Grimshaw, leading to the break up of their relationship and Scooter departing the cobbles for good.

However nearly two decades since he left the soap, Scooter actor Sushil looks worlds away from his Coronation Street counterpart.

The star regularly shares snaps on Instagram, where he can be seen sporting grey hair and a clean shaven look – along with a number of stylish outfits including his black coat and patterned scarf combo.

In another sweet snap, Sushil also smiles for the camera next to a llama – with the actor showcasing his seemingly ageless appearance.

After leaving Coronation Street, Sushil swapped the soaps for fame and began working as a business development executive for a safety group.

However, he hasn't left his acting roots behind and has popped up on a number of TV programmes – including another rival soap.

In 2015, Sushil played DC Henry in six episodes of Emmerdale and has previously appeared in Waterloo Road and Doctors.

He also appeared in DCI Banks, Last Tango In Halifax, Stepping Up, Banana and Boy Meets Girl.

That's not all, as Sushil most recently starred as Mr Shah in CBeebies programme Biff and Chip and has led a successful career on stage too in productions such as Two Gentlemen of Verona and Henry VI Part III.

However, the star appears to keep his personal life private and not much is known about the star away from our TV screens.

Coronation Street airs on ITV1 and ITVX
