A photograph was snapped showing the Aussie actor in action – only in his his underpants – as he headed into the home armed with a fire extinguisher just after 4am last month.

Sharing the pic, the Neighbours actor said: “Thank you to the London Fire for getting to the situation so quickly, glad no one was hurt.

“This is a good reason to always wear PJ s to bed ( in case of emergencies ) but much more importantly to have fire extinguishes at hand in the home.”

It is believed the fire started from an electrical fault inside the building.

Watch manager Thomas Wolfe said emergency crews had been called just after 4am on September 22 on Chepstow Villas in Notting Hill.

He said: “The fire was located in the side passage next to a house and when we arrived a gentleman was tackling the fire using a fire extinguisher. We took over from him and quickly dealt with the blaze.

“It soon transpired that it was Jason Donovan who noticed the fire from his property over the road. The fire is believed to have been caused by a fault in electrical cabling.”

And he added: “He looks good for his age. As one of the firefighters said to the resident, ‘everyone needs good neighbours’.”

Actor Donovan first made a name for himself in the Aussie soap Neighbours 1986 to 1989 with his character Scott Robinson marrying Charlene, played by Kylie Minogue, in 1987.

Now married to wife Angela, he is currently starring in Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

AUSSIE HERO

It’s not the first time that the Australian star has showed off his heroics.

The legend previously dashed to help a woman when he saw her sprawled on the pavement in May this year.

Onlookers saw the Aussie crouching down on his knees as he waited with the woman for paramedics in Notting Hill, West London.


At one point he appeared to be taking instructions over the phone from a 999 operator.

When asked about his kind-hearted intervention humble Jason insisted he did not deserve any praise.

He told The Sun: “I’m no hero. I did what any responsible citizen would have done. I just wanted to help someone in need.”
