Alan Fletcher, 65, played Doctor Karl Kennedy on Channel 5’s hit soap Neighbours for nearly 28 years, making him the longest serving character with a recurring role on the show. The Channel 5 star has since spoken to Express.co.uk concerning the one sneaky thing he managed to do on set before the show was axed and final scenes were wrapped.
The actor explained that he was not allowed to maintain much memorabilia from the Neighbours set now the soap has finished.
When asked if he took anything from the soap’s iconic Ramsay Street, Alan told Express.co.uk: “I used to be actually given the chance to take 10 items of clothing, so I’ve taken a few of Doctor Karl’s coats and things which have proved useful as I’ve already used them in some filming.
“But I took photos, I made sure to take photographs of anything, just like the photos on the partitions.
“That was an enormous thing for me, particularly those behind glass that couldn’t be taken out.”

Alan also shared his excitement over making a comeback to the UK last month for his music tour dates, ahead of his upcoming return in September for his Doctor Karl tour.
He gushed: “I even have missed out! I used to be meant to be coming over in March 2020 with Jackie Woodburn and others to film some Neighbours within the UK.
