Hollyoaks hunk Fabrizio Santino admits he feels a duty to keep his body looking good, but tries not to make it his life.
The half-Italian actor plays ladies man Ziggy Roscoe in the Channel 4 soap, and admits he has to spend a lot of time on screen with his top off.
Fabrizio told Inside Soap: “I swim a lot and eat well, but I try not to overdo the gym.
“You get cast because you’ve got a good physique, so you have to maintain it.
“I do regular exercise, but you shouldn’t let it become your life.
“You’ve got to learn your lines and get a decent night’s sleep.”
The soap hunk recalled one of his favourite stunts for Hollyoaks – hanging out of a window in just his boxers.
He said: “There was one with Frankie (Osborne) when we had a bit of a moment in Ruby’s bedroom. I think we did the dirty deed, then I got launched out of the window and was left hanging from the ledge.
“I was quite high up, it was a cold day and I was in my pants.”
He joked: “I totally loved that experience!”
