Chris Evans caused quite a stir when he announced he was leaving BBC Radio 2 last year to join Virgin Radio. He has since opened up about his decision to step down with his Virgin Radio Breakfast Show co-star, Vassos Alexander. The 53-year-old presenter and sports correspondent recently discussed some of the show’s most extravagant competitions. During their conversation, Chris recommended they hold a contest abroad a luxury boat in Portrush to coincide with Tiger Woods’ appearance at July’s Open Championship.
Explaining, the excited host began: “So what we could do is we could run a competition and get one of the elite boat companies to give us a boat for the listeners.
“You stay on the boat in the harbour, we do the show and you get to watch the golf with Sky Sports.”
The television personality then went on to joke about why he left the BBC and switched over to Virgin Radio.
He added: “It doesn’t get any better than this [but] still now and again it’s, ‘Why did you leave the BBC?”
Following his ballsy remark, Chris burst into a high-pitched yell, while his co-host, Vassos, quietly giggled in the background.
At the time Chris confirmed he was departing the BBC he also admitted he had been deliberating the decision for a year.
