The world 'legend' is over-used in popular culture, but it certainly applies to this man.
Alan Fletcher has been playing Dr Karl Kennedy in Neighbours for nearly 25 years, bringing calm to Ramsay Street with his homespun brand of down-to-earth common sense. He and on-screen wife Susan (played by Jackie Woodbourne) have become one of the best-known double acts in light entertainment, household names with eighties, nighties and noughties children across Britain.
Ahead of Neighbours' first-ever late-night episode, Fletcher chatted to our showbiz reporter Johnny Seifert about this landmark occasion, and discussed the return of Izzy Holland to the soap. He revealed what it's like to work with Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas, and even told us which Beatles legend he wants to join the soap.
