The popular actor spent much of his time on the soap opera running his family business and dealing with tumultuous relationships, however, his real life is much further removed from his role.
Chris Bisson is best known for his portrayal of hard-headed businessman Jai Sharma.
After making her first appearance on the popular soap in 2009, her character has dealt with everything from her failed marriage to Charity Dingle to cocaine addiction.
However, in real life, Chris has a much calmer and more normal life with his fiancée Rowena Finn and their two children, Harry and Ella Rose.
The family of four lives together in a stylish and comfortable home, with the actor spending a lot of time in the kitchen cooking up a storm for them. He was even put in charge of the Christmas dinner.
With wooden countertops, an off-white tile backsplash, and a black stovetop, Chris cooks everything from juicy turkeys to frying dumplings.
