Chris: (On how often he sees his former skating partner Jayne Torvill) Jayne and I talk almost every day, if not every other, although she lives in the UK and I'm in the USA. Fortunately, there are projects that we still work together on.
Christopher: It was a defining moment for Jayne and I to receive an O.B.E. (Order of the British Empire). It was for services to the country and is held in high regard, so we were very honored.
Christopher: We spent a lot of time in Australia in the '80s and '90s touring, so it's very familiar. We've got a lot of friends down here.
