Actor turned singer gets strange things in the post

Richard Fleeshman says his fans mail him underwear in the post.

‘I get sent pairs of knickers and things like that,’ he tells Now.

‘It’s slightly unnerving when you’re not quite sure if they’re dirty or clean.’

Rich, 19, says his fans put a lot of effort into their gifts.

‘Two girls got a star named after me,’ he says. ‘So there’s a Richard Fleeshman star in the solar system.’

The ex-Corrie teen is currently supporting Elton John on tour and his new single, Back Here, is out this week.
