The 33-year-old actor was runner-up on the ITV show’s third series, but Chris believes he was banned by the show’s bosses during “Dancing on Ice: The Greatest Show On Ice”.
Chris, who played Tommy Duckworth on Coronation Street, wrote on Twitter: “Unfortunately, my best pieces were rarely shown on the Dancing on Ice Best Bits Show tonight. I kind of expected it but can’t say I am not disappointed as I gave a hell of a lot to this show, finished second with my partner Frankie in 2008 and then continued to win UK tours of the live show.
“I had some of the best times of my life being part of Dancing on Ice and the tours that followed. I learned more and more about skating from the wonderful professionals and had a lot of fun doing it. I’ve always had incredible support from DOI fans, 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 believes the special wrongly ignored him.
In his post, the actor stated, “These are times that will stay with me forever, so I am very grateful to them and while it is unfortunate to be almost cut out of the memory of the show’s story, I know, and the fans of the show know I’ve been there. And I’m very proud of that. My routines don’t have to be on the Best Bits show to remind me of what I’ve accomplished, but it would have been nice to see and remember!
“Thanks to everyone for sending nice messages tonight, and to Frankie who was the greatest original partner and Brianne who was a fantastic partner on tour! Good luck to those taking part this year, and lots of love to everyone involved in the show, both in front of and especially behind the camera. Chris x (sic) ”
