Everyone has their own idea of a celebrity. For some, it might be a dashing actor with a jawline that won't quit, or a singer who can transform an arena. For others, it's one fluffy boy who went from being homeless with an excess of 41 kilograms of personal wool to being the world record holder for heaviest sheep fleece.
If you can't remember the greatest ovine comeback story of all time, shame on you for forgetting a Canberra hero.
In September 2015, Chris was rescued from Mulligans Flat by RSPCA ACT. He was malnourished after six years on the run, and as you can see, was absolutely huge.
He received a lifesaving shear and the mammoth fleece went onto be displayed at the National Museum.
Chris' story also went viral, gaining international coverage from outlets including CNN, BBC, Washington Post, CBS and NPR. A Wikipedia page was also created in his name, simply titled: Chris (sheep).
In 2017, RSPCA published a children's book about him called The Misadventures of Chris the Sheep.
So what's he up to now? And has the fame gone to his velvety head?
Chris spends his days in the sun at Little Oak Sanctuary, a 250 acre farm between Bungendore and Braidwood. He came into their care in September 2015 after being rescued.
"Chris is going really well. He's come along way since those early stages. He's really quite a character. He's friendly, affectionate and outgoing. Certainly not one of the shy sheep," said vice president of Little Oak Sanctuary, Kate Luke.
Chris no surname grows 6 kilos of wool per year, and is shorn each spring.
And the question on everyone's lips: has the fleecyboi taken a lover?
Apparently, Chris is specific about the ovine company he keeps in the 30-strong sheep crew at Little Oak.
"He has a few sheep friends he prefers to hang out with. There's Woolly Harrelson, Brigitte Baardot, Eddie Shedder, Gordon Lambsy and Tyrion Lambister."
Chris evidently has one of the plainest names of the bunch, which makes sense given he didn't need a star-studded name to become famous.
Luke says the media craze has died down, but they do get the occasional visitor asking about him. They also continue to tell the story of Chris during their sanctuary open days.
While Chris has a special donation page on their website, numbers have been down lately.
"As Little Oak is a sanctuary, it's tough during the drought at the moment as we aren't entitled to the government assistance that farmers receive.
"We've partnered with a few other sanctuaries and we're having a fundraising gala soon."
Save Our Sanctuaries Drought Relief Gala will take place at Lucky’s Speakeasy - QT Hotel on October 19, 7-11pm. Tickets via Hummingbird Events.
