A former professional surfer who is thought to have inspired the creation of Home and Away's River Boys has spoken out about the soap characters.

The three bad boys, made up of the Braxton brothers, have recently been compared to Koby Abberton and his gang the Bra boys.

The River Boys are set to create a stir on Summer Bay but Abberton, who was previously romantically linked to Paris Hilton, insisted that he isn't bothered by the characters.

He told Australian radio Nova FM: "I've had some of the hottest girls in the world call me a scumbag, do you really think I care what Home and Away are doing?

"I'm a bit more worried about what Alf thinks when the River Boys get to Home and Away."

Actors Steve Peacocke, Lincoln Younes and Dan Ewing, who play the River Boys, spend almost an hour having their tattoos painted on for the show every day.

Abberton commented: "Get some real tattoos, you pansies." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
