Introduction

Chris is a freelance writer, actor, entertainer and model. Amongst other things, he is a poetry slam champion, ventriloquist and burlesque artist.

In the past, Chris has been a trainee solicitor and worked in legal administration, academic administration, local government, theatre, historic buildings and local radio.

In 2002, Chris won The Weakest Link and was invited back as a "memorable man" the following year, having made Anne Robinson stifle a laugh with his limericks. Other television shows on which Chris has appeared include University Challenge (1994-5), Countdown (2003), A Question of Genius (2009) and Are You An Egghead? (2009).

Chris likes to keep fit by running, playing badminton, going to the gym and walking up mountains - and is open to other offers for exhausting himself.

A single man (at the time of writing), Chris lives in a tenement flat in Ibrox. He has lived in Glasgow since 2003 and in Scotland since 1993.
