Ethan Browne thinks he’s cracked the code to high ratings.
The 29-year-old Home and Away star claims that every time he has taken his shirt off on screen, viewership on the soap has increased.
‘It’s every time I have to do a topless scene, hey,’ I’ve figured it out. On Saturday, he told The Herald Sun, “Ratings just go up.”
Tane Parata and Felicity ‘Flick’ Newman are the hot new couple in Summer Bay, and Ethan and his co-star Jacqui Purvis play them.
While the couple has been popular with viewers, Jacqui believes the characters are in for a bumpy ride.
‘There will be a challenge between them,’ says the narrator. ‘It’ll be interesting to see how the audience responds to that,’ she told the newspaper.
‘Will they be able to stay together? Is this going to be something that separates them? ‘It’ll be very hot, sexy, and a lot of fun,’ added the actress.
Ethan is a newcomer to soaps, while Jacqui played Melissa Lohan in Neighbours for 18 episodes in 2019.
It comes after the actor revealed that he gave birth to his daughter Aaylah at the age of 16 years old.
In a sweet Instagram post late last year, he wished his little girl a happy 13th birthday alongside a photo of the two together.
‘My Angel is now a teen, and I wish you the happiest of birthdays, my lovely young lady. Everything I do is for you, and I will love and protect you for the rest of my life,’ he wrote.
