Coronation Street star Will Thorp says viewers forgive Chris’s lie
As fans of Coronation Street will know, Chris Gray – who’s played by Will Thorp – has been receiving treatment for a brain tumour…
However, he’s responded well to treatment, and whereas it was once feared that he would die, doctors have now told him that he should make a complete recovery, but he hasn’t told his ex, Cheryl that.
Chris is hoping to win Cheryl (Holly Quin-Ankrah) back, even if it’s only because she pities him, and he thinks if he told her the truth about his illness, his chance to get her back would be missed.
Speaking to Inside Soap, Will said, “I’ve not had any bad experiences with angry viewers.
“Most of the comments I get are from builders who feel Chris is just like them – he’s one of the lads as far as they’re concerned…
“At times Chris comes across as pure evil. His behaviour is totally disgusting – it’s horrendous.”
Both Holly and Will are leaving the show soon, so perhaps Chris will get his wish and they’ll move away together!
