Neighbours fave Dr Karl wows fans with amazingly ripped throwback pic

Lucky Susan, is all we can say!

Neighbours fans have been astonished at a picture of Alan Fletcher – who plays Ramsay Street fave Dr Karl Kennedy – showing off his impressive six-pack!

The photo was shared by Fletch’s Neighbours co-star Matt Wilson, who plays the equally buff Aaron Brennan.

In the pic, taken when Alan, aka Fletch to his mates, was just 30, the star is posing on the beach wearing a very small pair of trunks and boasting some pretty ripped muscles.

Matt posted it on Instagram alongside a photograph of himself as Aaron in equally tiny trunks – and said “Mind. Blown.”

The picture has attracted more than 6000 likes with fans falling over themselves to comment.

“No wonder Susan keeps forgiving his misdemeanours!” joked one fan, referring to Fletch’s on-screen wife, Susan Kennedy.

“Wow don’t think I’ll ever look at @fletchy1 the same way again,” said another.

“My wife Jen showed Matty that photo of me,” Fletch said to new.com.AU. “He’s obviously a very fit young guy. I’m the amateur in that competition.

“But I did take the opportunity to warn Matty that while he’s in spectacular shape now, if he doesn’t look after himself, he’ll end up looking like me!”

Alan has been in Neighbours since 1994 and is a firm favourite with fans. Matt is a newer arrival on Ramsay Street, but he’s also proved popular since his arrival in 2015 as Aaron Brennan.
