Yes! When Chris was a student he modelled for "My Guy" magazine. If you ever come across some old My Guy annuals in second hand shops etc... It would be an idea to have a look at them. He was in the picture stories.

Oh my gawd !!! This thread really make a good start of 2017. I didn't know about Chris illustrated romantic novel carreer ! Now if somebody have the issues where he does appears, I would love to see that ! Or if somebody knows what issues he does appears maybe with some chance, somebody could find them ! Maybe eBay or something that sort....

Today I was watching this one:

A gossipy one... but that does not matter, because at 12 min 54 secs some quality entered the experience. I could not believe my eyes! :shock: 8)
You know, looking at that, I can't help but think of "Bet She's Not Your Girlfriend." ;-)

Does anyone know precisely which issue that is? The image is too blurry in the video; I can't make out the issue number or date. But I'd love to find out in hopes of learning more about it.

The typeface would put it around late '84 or early 1985, but not sure exactly when.

I think it was end of 84 or during 85 because this issue was 32p and it was that price on these years...

Another issue with Chris on it than a friend posted on Facebook :

Thanks! That new picture helps because it appears to be Issue 110, which by mentioning "Pet Shop" indicates that it comes after PSB became famous. And that means the previous cover, which doesn't allude to PSB, is before 110. And that all matches up with the late '84/early '85 period. Now I've got more to go on.

It's clear, by the way, that the two photos are from the same photoshoot. Chris is wearing the same shirt in both, with the same strangely turned collar.

Thanks again. I'll be sure to share anything more I learn about all this.

I wonder how Chris feels about us looking for this type of "treasure"' perhaps he would be aghast!

I imagine he'd be thinking "why on Earth are they doing this?" and find it hilarious... :?

I remember Chris being in My Guy. I think he did it for a laugh.

I'm not sure how you could find out. I didn't know they actually stopped making "My Guy". If they were still around you could have asked them. I used to buy this magazine when I was at school.

During their interview here, on Graham Norton, at around 4:40, Chris asks Graham, "Have you got My Guy there?" :lol:
