All about Chris

Chris is your host for Heart Drivetime, every weekday afternoon from 4pm-7pm

Chris entertains you while you get home from work but what is he all about? We grilled him to find out a bit more about him...

ANORAK…Do you have a sad side?
I always wanted to be a weather man when I was younger so you can find me getting a little excited over strong winds and the chance of a thunderstorm.

BODY…What physical attribute would you most like to change?
I don’t think I would change anything, not that I think I’m perfect, but I don’t think I could face the surgery

CELEBRITY…Which one would you most like to date and why?
I wouldn’t want to date a celebrity as they would be more well off than me and have more control and I hate that.

DEBUT …Tell us about your first ever show?
It was on a radio station down the road in Suffolk and it was very early one Sunday morning at about 2am. I was so nervous.

ERROR …What’s been your worst?
Packing my spending money in the suitcase, then the suitcase went to America and I was going to Turkey. Doh!

GRAND…If we gave you one right now what would you spend it on?
A holiday! I never really have much time off and I need a break.

HOLIDAY… What’s your favourite destination?
I know we moan about them, but there’s something quite adorable about France. I love the place and go a few times a year.

IRRITATE… What’s your most annoying habit?
I bite the inside of my mouth and then moan how much it hurts.

JOKER…Which presenter is the practical joker of the team?
…erm me? I like to play a few pranks on people in the office.

KENNEL… Do you have any pets?
3 fish (there were more – oops!) and I want a dog, but I’m told I can’t have one.

LOVE…Are you attached or looking?.
Very much in love at very settled. I couldn’t cope with the dating process again. It’s too complicated.

MEAN… Who’s the tightest member of the Heart team?
Toby Anstis – He wouldn't even lend me 10p to get a packet of crisps when I was hungry.

NEVER…What would you absolutely refuse to do?
Scuba dive – I’m terrified of going under water

OFF WORK…What do you do in your spare time?
Love walking and bike rides and exploring new places. Plus I’m learning to fly which is great!

PROUD MOMENTS …What are you most proud of?
Teaching myself some great skills. I can build websites and am a dab hand with a camera. All self taught.

QUEASY …What turns your stomach?
Other people being sick. My stomach turns at the thought.

RELAX…How do you?
Bottle of red wine on the sofa and a good cuddle.

CAMBRIDGESHIRE…Tell us about it? Favourite place, why is it so good?
I love going for a stroll round Cambridge in the sunshine and watching the tourists trying to have a punt on the Cam without falling in the water.

TEAM …Pick another presenter and describe him or her in three words?
Blonde, Girly, Emotional – Emma Bunton

UNKNOWN…Tell us something about yourself that no one else knows?
No chance!

VOCAL…. Who is your favourite artist?
Michael Buble – Which is good because we play loads of his songs.

XRAY…Any broken bones?
So far (touch wood) none. I would like it to stay that way please.

ZOO…. If you were an animal, which one would you be?
Hippo – Wallowing around in warm mud, it would be great for my skin!
