His followers regularly enjoy his online banter and discussion around boxing – as well as highlighting funny tweets he reveals and showcasing his impressive beard.
Jake – who played Max Branning in the BBC One soap from 2006 before his exit earlier in the year, shared an image of a sunset with the words ‘Social Media Break’
He added in a caption: ‘Peace out’.
It comes after Jake’s Instagram was hacked earlier this year, and he managed to get it back a week afterwards.
Sharing a video of himself sledging down a hill, he wrote: ‘Getting my Instagram account back from the hackers feels like this!! Good to be back people (sic)’
The hackers had taken over Jake’s Instagram account, deleting his pictures and posting some of their own.
Jake had alerted his fans via Twitter that his Instagram account had been hacked and deleted, and he was ‘working on getting [his] account back.’He tweeted at the time: ‘Just to let you all know that my @instagram account @mrjakewood was hacked and then deleted last night and this Twitter account was hacked and I was frozen out. Just got this back. Working on getting my Insta back (sic).’
Jake left the show in a storyline that saw Max isolated from the community but before he went, he left baby Abi in the care of Rainie.
The door has been left open for a future return.
