“In these trying times it’s always good to remember the great things that have come from this pandemic #sexysutton,” the page’s description reads.

Dr Brett McHunk, Scruff McHunk, CHOttie and Chief Swoon Officer are just some of the affectionate nicknames the Professor’s fans have given him.

Another Facebook group, the “Brett Sutton fan club”, has more than 2200 members.

Some fans have even gone as far as to create mugs, bottles, T-shirts, pillows and shower curtains printed with Professor Sutton’s face.

One photo in particular of Professor Sutton as a 22-year-old is shared regularly across both groups.
