On Wednesdays show Chris gave listeners an insight into his fitness regime and relationship with Tash, his wife.
Chris admitted: “I can’t go out running with Tash.
“She’s miles fitter for me and it’s a bit embarrassing for everyone concerned.
“Least of all me but everyone’s like, what is he doing.
“But she pushed me too hard.
“When she starts to talk to me about what I should be doing and how I should be doing it that makes me feel as I’m doing it – it hurts.
“Her words hurt me. Not emotionally, just physically.
“I would happily run a marathon every day for a week than workout with Tash for an hour or even half an hour.”
