Chris: (On the fans on the Dancing on Ice live tour) It's weird, because I'm getting a massive reaction from the public on the Dancing on Ice tour we're doing and yet that televised final was a public vote. So I'm thinking: 'Why didn't they all vote for me?'
Chris: (On his past skating helping him on Dancing on Ice) I played ice hockey for two years but it's completely different to what I'm doing now. The blades are different, the stance is different, the speed and the way you use your arms is different.
Chris: I was about nine when I first started acting. I did small pantos and stuff, but then I got into acting seriously when I did Les Miserables. I also did Oliver. Then I got an agent and started to try for TV work.
Chris: (On his Dancing On Ice Partner, Frankie Poultney) Frankie and I get on really, really well. We have a great banter and always take the mickey out of each other all the time. She said if I drop her we'll both lose our teeth - she'll lose them when she falls and I'll lose them when she gets up.
