Talking about his career, Chris mentioned the film East Is East, in which he played Saleem ‘Picasso’ Khan, came out around the same time he was in Coronation Street.
Lorraine then suggested he should also make an appearance in EastEnders and Chris revealed he is sometimes mistaken for a character on the BBC soap.
He said: “Sometimes when I’m walking down the street, people do go: ‘Oh it’s Sanjay!’ Come on.”
EastEnders character Sanjay was played by Deepak Verma from 1993 until 1998.
Chris played Vikram Desai in Coronation Street from 1999 until 2002.
Vikram co-founded Street Cars along with Steve McDonald and was known as a bit of a womaniser.
He dated Leanne Battersby, Maria Connor and Candice Stowe, but ended things when he discovered she was 14.
He left after he was forced to smuggle drugs into the country.
After asking Steve and his wife at the time Karen if they wanted a free holiday, they accepted but when they returned they discovered there were drugs inside the suitcase.
Steve dumped the drugs into the canal, punched Vikram and told him to leave.
Chris joined Emmerdale as Jai in 2009 and has been on the soap ever since.
