Apparently Christopholoff is a big fan of Union J - especially Jaymi who is apparently his BFF on the show.
We'd like to imagine that they egg each other on before they go on stage by growling and patting each other on the head. Or you know, other manly stuff like that.
"I love those guys - I think they could be the next big boyband," Chris told STV. "They’re totally different to One Direction."
That's probably a good thing as far as Chris is concerned though as he's the first to admit that he probably won't be asking for a 1D onesie for Christmas.
"One Direction aren’t really my cup of tea," he explained."Union J, however, are my cup of tea!”
As far as we're aware, a cup of tea is only ever made better when it's chucked over the topless bodies of both 1D and Union J, but we'd imagine Chris might prefer a teapot that sang Abba covers instead.
What do you think? Reckon Chris has got the turban and foresight usually reserved for a fortune teller?
