Thankfully Kris's life off-screen seems to be happier than on it as Lee is currently lying in a coma after being attacked by Robert Sugden.

Lee raped Robert's sister, Victoria, but has denied it and has since been terrorising her.

Victoria fell pregnant with his baby and was planning to leave so Lee couldn't have any rights to the child.

After Lee demanded money to leave her alone, Vic agreed to pay him off in return for him giving up rights to the baby, but she refused to give him a public apology.

After Lee taunted her some more, Robert followed him outside where Lee all-but admitted to raping her.

Robert, with a murderous look in his eyes, was soon fighting Lee.

When Robert told Lee he wasn't walking away from this, Lee replied: "Oh but I am, and twenty grand richer. Baby maker, money maker, I wonder who the next lucky lady is going to be?"

As he walked away, Robert came up behind him and smacked him over the head with a shovel, knocking him unconscious.

Lee remains in a coma, but whether or not he pulls through remains to be seen.

Kris shot to fame as Ali Gordon on Channel 4 soap Brookside.

But things went off course when he was jailed for supplying Class C drug GHB in 2009.

He pleaded guilty to supplying Class C drugs and perverting the course of justice.

He initially denied the charge after his friend Daniel Latimer's drink was mixed with GHB and he then collapsed. Kris was convicted at Hull Crown Court after changing his plea.

GHB is known for being used as a date rape drug, but there is no suggestion that Kris used the drug in order to have sex with the victim.

His defence at the time said he lied to protect his career. He gave the court 25 letters attesting to his good name.
