Chris Evans, who is a host on the Virgin Radio Breakfast Show, spoke candidly to his co-stars Vassos Alexander and Rachel Horne today. The former BBC presenter admitted he was “scared to ask” the latter about whether she had plans to leave the show.

The 55-year-old explained that he rarely asks his radio co-hosts about their employment status.

Chris added that he felt it was important to have an open and honest conversation about their work.

Rachel, who is a newsreader on Virgin Radio, moved across to the network along with Chris three years ago.

“I was chatting to Magic Mike about you,” Chris exclaimed to the news presenter.

“We have very friendly, candid and important conversations between the three of us.

“About our families, about each other, people on the team – things like, ‘Is everything alright? How long can we stay in harmony for?’

“But I don’t really ask you about your employment status or future but I do ask other people.”

He added: “I’m too scared to ask you.”

 

Chris explained that he asked his colleague Mike if Rachel planned on staying at the network.

“Mike said to me that you’re staying,” the radio host commented with a sound of relief.

He then added: “Not that I thought you might be leaving, it’s just I wanted you to stay.”

Chris explained: “We’re three years into the business and you have your micro windows of contemplation and reflection.

“I think it’s every three years or between every eight to ten years you either need to change what you’re doing or reinvent what you’re doing.

“But every three years you have a little think about it and it will be three years for us in a couple of week’s time. It’s been amazing for us.”

Chris wanted to ensure that his colleague had no intention of leaving the programme.

He quizzed further: “You are sticking around for a while?”

Rachel replied: “Yes please.”

Chris went on: “Are you 100 per cent?”

“As long as you’ll have me,” his co-star assured him.

Virgin Radio with Chris Evans airs weekdays at 6am.
