Chris was one of Corrie’s biggest stars in the 80s where he played Gail’s husband Brian after arriving on the cobbles in 1978.

He asked producers to make him a part-time character so he could move to America to marry his first wife, the US talk show host Leeze Gibbons, but they rejected his offer and instead killed Brian off in a brutal stabbing in 1989.

After getting a small role in Robocop 2, Chris struggled for acting work on screen, last appearing in Doctors in 2000 and playing a stripper in The Young Person’s Guide to Becoming a Rock Star in 1998.

He went on to work at Stringfellows in London before moving to Secrets last year where he came to a head with the dancers who walked out over a dispute in pay.

At Secrets a three-minute nude table dance costs £30. Half an hour with a stripper and champagne is £350.
