She is portraying the royal’s new love interest in Channel 4 comedy The Windsors and has been studying her closely to research the role.
It was back in August 2013 when ITV bosses decided to terminate the actor's contract, after offensive self-made rap videos of Chris emerged online.
The raps contained such lyrics as ‘rape a bitch on her birthday’, reported The Sun at the time.
Fountain released a statement at the time saying he was ‘deeply ashamed’ of the videos.
In the years following his sacking, the actor has battled with depression in his personal life and also appeared in a stage production of The Full Monty.On 7 June 2006, Fountain injured himself on location whilst filming for Hollyoaks when he touched an electric fence.Fountain was a runner up in the third series of ITV show Dancing on Ice, in which he was partnered with skater Frankie Poultney."The lyrics that appeared online were influenced by a style of hiphop that I was experimenting with at a private freestyle session and blurted out in a moment of madness."There is absolutely no excuse - I take complete responsibility for my actions - but they were in no way thought out or represent at all my attitude towards women, rape and violence." However, Fountain's actions were condemned by charities, women's groups and MPs.It was confirmed on 11 March 2009 that Fountain would be leaving Hollyoaks.
