Chris Pitcher was a short term boyfriend of Maria Sutherland in 2006.

The two first met when Chris nearly hit Maria with his Porsche. Maria's brother Kirk tried to matchmake the two but she was still embarrassed following the close call with the car. Chris returned later that day to ask Maria if she would like to go out for a drink. Although she initially rejected, Maria caved and agreed to go on a date with him.

Chris was seen as unreliable, particularly regarding the time he would turn up for dates with Maria. He turned up a day late to their first date and told Maria that although he didn't want to let her down, he had to work. Maria struggled to believe Chris at first but eventually accepted his excuse and the two went out for drinks at the Rovers.

Chris turned up to his next date with Maria an hour late which irritated her. For their following date, Maria made a point of arriving early and told Chris that if he wasn't there at the correct time, she would leave. Chris arrived on time but annoyed Maria by mocking her ex-boyfriend Tyrone Dobbs.

Maria decided to meet up with Chris again for lunch at the Rovers on the day of her job interview. When she failed to get the job, Chris was not supportive and seemed disinterested. This led to Maria dumping Chris as she believed that he thought she wasn't good enough for him.
