Better known as one of the regular team on BBC quiz show Eggheads, Chris is a former Mastermind champion too.
A former train driver, Chris has been a winner of both Mastermind and International Mastermind in 1983 and Brain of Britain in 2005. Chris is currently one of only five people ever to have won both Mastermind and Brain of Britain. In 2001, he appeared on The Weakest Link, and was voted out in the final elimination round without answering a single question incorrectly during the whole show, having been named the strongest link in six of the seven elimination rounds. Host Anne Robinson declared Chris to be "the best contestant we have had on the Weakest Link" and opted not to use her signature "you are the Weakest Link, goodbye!" catchphrase, instead simply saying "goodbye Chris".
Today, Chris is a regular team member of the popular BBC quiz show Eggheads.
