Chris Evans: Virgin Radio host’s show absence explained as replacement steps in
Chris Evans jokes about ‘letting off steam’ on radio show
Chris Evans, 54, regularly fronts his morning show on Virgin Radio but was missing from the breakfast programme. The radio DJ was replaced by Sam Pinkham who took to the airwaves and addressed listeners as he commented on the main host’s absence.
The latter explained Chris was “feeling unwell” as his co-star Vassos Alexander revealed his colleague messaged him from the hospital.
Sam said: “I’m [standing] in for Chris. He’s not very well today, so hopefully he will be back with us tomorrow or over the next couple of days.
“He’s not very well but we know that he gets up early, however he’s feeling.
“He may even be listening, so lots of love old boy.”

He added: “The team are all here to give you a big hug and get well soon.
His regular co-star Vassos explained he has been in touch with Chris who warned him to take the reigns on the show.
Sending his well-wishes, Vassos replied: “Indeed. Get well soon Christopher.”
Sam later asked: “You heard from Chris yesterday, didn’t you? He was in good spirits?”
Vassos agreed: “Yes, he was in good spirits. He texted me. Although, I’m not sure what drugs they’re giving him in the hospital.
“He texted me to say that I’m the Steve Jobs of the Breakfast show.”
It comes as fans took to Twitter and quizzed why Chris was “missing” from Virgin Radio.
One person said: “Missing Chris this morning! Hope he’s ok. It’s weird as I couldn’t work out what was going on.”

While a third quizzed: “Where is Chris?”
Express.co.uk has contacted Chris Evans’ representatives for comment.
It was explained on Virgin Radio that Chris is expected to return to his radio show this week.
Meanwhile, the Virgin Radio host recently gave a home life insight as he revealed he has a set amount of rules he follows everyday to avoid getting stressed over various decisions.
Referring back to his own circumstances, he admitted having four kids under the age of 15 is “brilliant” but “full of decisional spontaneity one way or another”.
“I have to have these rules because there’s so much going on anyway that you can’t cater for,” he explained, using Wednesday night as an example.
“Last night, in 15 minutes over dinner about 30 things happened that we didn’t know was going to happen!
“There were smashed plates on the floor… and this is just my wife,” he giggled.
The Chris Evans Breakfast Show airs weekdays at 6:30am on Virgin Radio.
