Dr Karl heads to the UK for Blue September

With his on-screen marriage unraveling at the moment, Neighbours’ star Alan Fletcher has good reason to be blue at the moment.

However, that isn’t the explanation as to why Alan looks like he is auditioning for the remake of Braveheart, he is an ambassador for this year’s Blue September campaign to raise awareness of men’s health. He heads to the UK this weekend to spread the word.

Cashing in on Neighbours international popularity, who better to promote the virtues of regular medical checks than Dr Karl who is a TV icon to English viewers. Alan will be on a grueling media and appearance tour for seven days including breakfast with London's Lord Mayor Boris Norman.

“It will be hectic but worth it to get across a very important message,” said Alan. “I’m hoping Susan will go easy on Karl when he returns.”
