Chris was explaining to listeners why there should be a “kids edit” of certain films such as, ‘Fast and Furious’. The 53-year-old said children aren’t bothered by certain scenes which give it an age restriction as they just want to see the racing. But he went on to reveal he lets his children watch all the Austin Powers films without any editing.
Speaking on his Virgin Radio Breakfast Show, Chris said: “I have always thought there should be a kids’ edit of films like that.
“Because ‘Fast and Furious’ mostly is totally watchable for kids under 12.
“But there’s bits and bobs in it. You know what I’m talking about so I don’t need to go any further.
“You could just do a kids edit.

“Why doesn’t Hollywood do this?
“Why don’t the movie industry to kids edits of certain films?
“You have only got to cut out little bits and bobs and with those bits, the kids don’t care about.
“They want to see the racing, what’s going on with the cars or whatever else is in different movies.
“Although our kids are allowed to watch all the Austin Powers movies unedited so there you go, hypocrite happens once again on your radio.”
Chris’ questioning over films comes after he quizzed a behavioural expert on how to improve his eldest son Noah’s manners.
He told listeners: “My 10-year-old used to say please and thank you all the time, and he’s just started to stop doing that.”
“I had a word with him over the weekend and it wasn’t going in.
“How do I best part information to my 10-year-old?”
Chris was joined by brain surgeon Dr Rahul Jandial on the show who assured him of Noah’s behaviour.
Dr Jandial, author of ‘Life Lessons of A Brain Surgeon’, told Chris it was usual for Noah to act like this as his brain is in the biggest developing period.
