Ex Coronation Street star Chris Fountain is stranded in Bali after flights are grounded – The Sun
SACKED rape rap Corrie star Chris Fountain is stranded on the paradise island of Bali.
The actor, 32, has been stuck in Southeast Asia there since March and has been unable to get a flight home.
He jetted to the Indonesian retreat on holiday with pals and is now staying until flight restrictions are eased.
The former soap star wrote on his Instagram page in March: “Currently stuck in Bali, so me and my friends travelled to a remote part of the island to distance ourselves from the masses. Everywhere is eerily quiet.
“No flights home as yet and no obvious right answers as to what to do, missing my family and friends but trying to make the best of the situation.
"To everyone at home, stay safe, be kind and do the right thing to get this virus stopped as soon as possible.”
He added in a further post: “The whole world is in chaos, everyone is social distancing but somehow I hope that this will eventually bring us closer together than ever.
“I’m making sure that I stay grateful for my family and my friends and when this is all over, I know for a fact that the significance they hold in my life will be even greater! Stay safe people, we’re in this together.”
And yesterday he shared a shirtless pic and wrote: “Anyone know when those new James Bond auditions are? 😂 #Bali #beach #budgetbond #bradfordbond.”
His soap star mate Adam Thomas – who appeared in Emmerdale – wrote: “This man has literally been there done that and bought the t-shirt and now doesn’t wear t-shirts and lives on an island. What a guy.”
Chris, who played Tommy Duckworth in the Street for two years, was sacked in 2013 after he posted videos online where he spouted obscene lyrics that glorified rape as masked alter-ego The Phantom.
The actor admitted that ITV bosses had “no choice” but to sack him. He also appeared on Hollyoaks and appeared in Dancing on Ice.
