Chris is currently holding out hope for a reunion with his ex-partner Cheryl (Holly Quin-Ankrah), who is now in a relationship with Lloyd. In a twisted plan, the builder has been exaggerating the seriousness of his brain tumour in order to win her back.
Coronation Street viewers see Chris have a heart-to-heart with Cheryl later this week as he tells her that he wishes things were like they used to be.
Thorp told Take It Easy of the scenes: "[Cheryl] is touched by this. It really is not ideal for them to be apart when they have a son together. The idea of being a family is appealing to her."
Asked whether Chris's antics could lead to a "massive showdown" with Lloyd (Craig Charles), the actor replied: "Yes, I think so. There has been this simmering tension between the pair bubbling away for some time now, and I think there is only one way to resolve it - and it isn't going to be pretty."
Cheryl, Chris and their son Russ will all bow out of Coronation Street later this year as the current storyline reaches its conclusion.
Thorp added: "I will miss playing Chris. He's such fun to play and I have really enjoyed playing a Northerner."
