Ryan Thomas received high praise for his gay sex scene on Neighbours

Ryan Thomas has been praised highly for his gay sex scene on Neighbours this week.

This actor, playing character Rafael, had recently suffered a motorbike accident that left him with severe scars across his body.

This week, he found the courage to remove his clothes in front of David, played byΒ Takaya Honda, who recently revealed that he was experimenting with his sexuality.

The pair kissed as Rafael told David: "I only came out last year. I know what it's like to feel overwhelmed."

The guys continued to embrace as the camera panned away, leaving viewers with the mere suggestion of what happened next.

Following the scene, fans of the Australian soap took to Twitter to commend the actors on the "beautiful" scene and to complement their acting abilities too.

They also applauded the show for including an implied sex scene between two men.

Thomas made his debut on Ramsey Street earlier this year as mysterious English tourist, Rafael.

He had previously starred as Jason Grimshaw on Coronation Street, beginning his career on the cobbles when he was just 16-years-old.

He left the show in 2016 saying that he wanted new experiences and a chance to pursue other roles.
