The 33-year-old actor was a runner-up in the third series of the ITV show, but Chris thinks he was sidelined by the show’s bosses during ‘Dancing on Ice: The Greatest Show On Ice’.
Chris – who played Tommy Duckworth in ‘Coronation Street’ – wrote on Twitter: “So, unfortunately hardly any of my best bits were shown on the Dancing on Ice best bits show this evening. Kind of expected it but can’t say that I’m not disappointed as I gave a hell of a lot to that show, coming second with my partner Frankie in 2008 and then continuing to win UK tours of the live show.
“I had some of the best times of my life while being a part of Dancing on Ice and the tours that followed, learning more and more about skating from the wonderful professionals and having tonnes of fun during the process. I always had such amazing support from fans of DOI for which I will always be incredibly grateful. Team Fountain was born through my family, friends and the public. (sic)”
Chris has fond memories of the show, but thinks he was unfairly ignored by the special.
In his post, the actor explained: “These are times that will stay with me forever so I’m very grateful for them and even though it’s unfortunate to almost be chopped from the memory of the show’s history, I know, and the fans of the show know that I was there. And, for that, I am extremely proud. My routines don’t have to be in the ‘best bits’ show to remember what I achieved but it would’ve been nice to see them and reminisce!
“Thank you to everyone sending lovely messages tonight and thanks to Frankie for being the most amazing original partner and to Brianne for being a fantastic partner on tour! Good luck to the contestants this year and love to everyone involved in the show, both in front of and especially behind the camera. Chris x (sic)”
