Corrie and Hollyoaks actor Chris Fountain is stranded in Bali – having been there since March.

The 32 year old – who jetted out the Indonesian island with mates – can’t get a flight home amid the coronavirus crisis.

Still, he hasn’t let it dampen his spirits, and in a series of social media posts he urged kindness and unity.

Sharing a snap of himself in front of a sprawling, lush green landscape, he told that the gang had retreated to one of the island’s least populated areas.

“Currently stuck in Bali,” he wrote, “So me and my friends travelled to a remote part of the island to distance ourselves from the masses.

“Everywhere is eerily quiet. No flights home as yet and no obvious right answers as to what to do, missing my family and friends but trying to make the best of the situation.

“To everyone at home, stay safe, be kind and do the right thing to get this virus stopped as soon as possible.”

In another, Chris admitted that the “world in chaos” had got him down, but he remained hopeful.

“I’m making sure I stay grateful for my family and my friends,” he added, “And when this is all over, I know for a fact that the significance they hold in my life will be even greater!

“Stay safe people, we’re in this together.”

Chris seems to be managing to keep his spirits up, joking that he’d make a great new James Bond after sharing a sultry black and white snap of himself.

He played Tommy Duckworth on The Cobbles, and Justin Burton on Hollyoaks.

Chris was suspended and eventually sacked from Corrie in 2013, after a video of him performing an offensive rap circulated online.

Performing as character “The Phantom”, the rap contained lyrics about rape and violence towards women.

He apologised, more recently admitting it was “stupid” and “in no way reflects how I feel about women.”

Meanwhile, back in blighty, filming on Corrie got underway again earlier this month.

Production came to a grinding halt amid the pandemic, with ITV taking extra safety measures to ensure the safety of everyone on set now that filming’s resumed.

Meanwhile, production on Hollyoaks has resumed, with the Channel 4 confirming the actors will be back on set in July 13.

A spokesperson for the soap told that cast and crew will “attend a safety induction” before heading back to set, ensuring that they fully understand new guidelines which include proper social distancing measures.
