HOLLYOAKS heartthrob Chris Fountain has been telling the world about his beloved Huddersfield Town.
Yorkshire born Chris, who plays loveable rogue Justin Burton in the popular Channel 4 soap, is featured in lads’ mag Front explaining why he supports the mighty Terriers.
Chris, 21, turned his back on his native Bradford City at a young age to follow Town, after being swayed by the throngs of supporters in his parents’ Leeds Road pub.
They owned the Wagon and Horses pub, now Ricky’s Bar, opposite the old Leeds Road ground, the main supporters’ bar at the time.
And Chris, who is rumoured to be exiting Hollyoaks this spring, wasn’t shy at expressing strong views on all things down at the Galpharm.
He revealed his dream for this season was for Town to make the play-off semis against Leeds and send them packing, denying them the pleasure of playing at Wembley for a second year.
Chris, who says he goes to most games, also blasted the Stan Ternent regime and slammed the players for not taking enough shots, saying they were too focussed on trying to walk the ball into the net.
But he heaped praise on the new manager Lee Clark and chairman elect Dean Hoyle saying he was confident they could take the club forward.
Despite coming runner-up in the ITV hit Dancing on Ice, he poured cold water on the idea of a Huddersfield Ice Hockey team.
But Chris did reveal he his set to showcase his soccer skills on the Galpharm pitch next month in a charity football match.
Chris also says he’s not bothered about sharing the ground with the Giants but agrees that mascot Terry the Terrier looks like Bungle from Rainbow.
He adds: “He just needs a hairbrush to smarten him up.
“ I reckon we should get Zippy, Bungle and George, dress them up and have them all as our mascots. That would freak people out.”
Chris will be playing in a charity match in April.
