An employee is quoted in The Mirror saying that although they were in the filming, they don't actually work there.
"I don't actually work in here, I was just told to come down and fill up the office because there weren't many people apparently", the source said.
"They just said, come down and watch - and I might be on the telly.
"I don't really know Chris to be honest, I'm sure he's a nice lad but I can't really pretend to know anything about him."
Hey, maybe they were off Christmas shopping or something? Or it was lunchtime? We can't believe that his WHOLE call centre was half full.
It's also reported that show staff had to rally around the city center with leaflets to gather a crowd for Christopher's homecoming.
Like we said, mega awks!
