EMMERDALE hunk Max Parker did his best to boost morale as he stripped off to sunbathe in his garden during self-isolation.
The actor shared the perfectly-angled selfie showing his chiselled torso as he stayed at home during the coronavirus lock down.
And the soap star certainly got pulses racing as he shared the picture on his social media page.
One follower said simply: “Marry me.”
Others commented: “this has made my day x” and “I mean.. I wouldn’t kick you outta bed ”.
Max captioned the picture, referring to his pale skin: “Braving the sun…I’ll give it 5 mins . #garden #chill #stayathome #workout #summer #isolation.”
The exercise fan can be seen wearing a baseball cap to shield his face from the sun as he looks directly into the camera.
One person sympathised: “Joys of being ginger, I know the feeling lol. X”
While others showed their concern that he was using enough sun cream – “Factor 50 I hope!! .”
Max’s shirtless selfie was a far cry from his usual attire on ITV soap Emmerdale in the role of Luke Posner.
Despite playing Victoria Sugden’s love interest in the programme, he recently told HOAR Online it would be “fun” to see Luke have an affair with Victoria’s brother-in-law Aaron Dingle.
In response to a fan theory on the chemistry between the two, he said: “I think the idea is fun but I think what the fans want to see is very different and I see a lot of things online with people are like NO and then some with YES.
“I just think that at the minute Luke has only got eyes for Victoria and I think a lot of time in episodes in soaps people that hate each other and have a feud, people are always going to speculate about whether they actually like each other and stuff.
“But I don’t think so.”
He also said that Luke will not turn out to be a bad guy like his evil brother – but he did describe him as “broken”.
