Despite the comments from TV executives that Chris should be unemployable for ” at least five years ” it appears that the former Coronation Street star could be back on our screens sooner rather than later.
” Chris has been approached to do a reality series next year, ” said a close friend.
The star, who joined the Cobbles in 2011, was axed from the soap after a number of online clips emerged which he recorded over a year ago under the moniker of masked MC The Phantom.
His contract was not due to expire until February 2014, but ITV took immediate action and suspended him while they carried out further inquiries on the ‘vile’ song’
At the time ‘mortified’ Fountain issued an apology and said he is ‘deeply ashamed’ of the YouTube videos, which show him spouting lyrics about raping women, bombing houses and stabbing people in the face with syringes.
