Chris Fountain appealing for help to trace his stolen car
Chris Fountain has pleaded with his Twitter followers to help him find his stolen car.
The former 'Coronation Street' actor posted an impassioned plea on Twitter on Thursday evening (15.09.16) after his Audi A7 was stolen in Cheadle, Manchester earlier in the day.
He wrote: "My silver Audi A7 (MJ11 MUA) was stolen this morning from Cheadle, Manchester, any info leading to its return will be substantially rewarded ...
"If everyone could retweet my last tweet I'd really appreciate it x (sic)"
Meanwhile, the 29-year-old actor previously admitted he became a bit of a recluse after he was sacked from the ITV soap over a rape rap video.
He shared: "Stupidly, when I was quite a bit younger, I got involved with a group of people. I didn't know them particularly well and just decided to try and impress these people and ended up doing some very stupid things ... I've constantly worked since I was 15.
"I started on 'Hollyoaks' then I did 'Dancing on Ice' and then 'Coronation Street' and then this happened. It put my family through absolute hell. I didn't leave the house for a long time. I was depressed, really ashamed."
After being sacked from his job, Chris tried desperately to focus on his fitness.
He added: "It was tough, this is all I've ever done. I've always been an actor so to have that taken away from me because of something I've brought on myself is an absolute killer but I've tried to keep myself busy in the gym.
"It's such a gift for me to be able to do what I love to do ... We start rehearsals [for 'The Full Monty'] in a couple of weeks ... I've recently just lost two stone in the gym but still a long way to go."
