CHRIS Evans let slip Doc­tor Who spoil­ers live on air yes­ter­day when he re­vealed key plot de­tails.

The Ra­dio 2 break­fast show host blurted out a se­cret sto­ry­line and dropped a clanger about the Tardis.

BBC1 bosses had gone all-out to keep de­tails of The Ghost Mon­u­ment episode un­der wraps.

But Evans, who was joined by Doc­tor Who Jodie Whit­taker, read out a list of things not to re­veal. He said: “It’s so se­cre­tive. The sec­ond episode ar­rived as an email. Not only was it en­crypted... the email had a code name. It also came with this caveat say­ing, ‘Please do not re­veal any sto­ry­line spoil­ers’...” He then EMO­TIONAL Jodie Whit­taker quoted them. A BBC in­sider said: “Chris ru­ined weeks of hard work af­ter we begged peo­ple not to talk.”

Jodie said she is “quite emo­tional” fol­low­ing the over­whelm­ing re­ac­tion to her de­but episode last week­end.

An au­di­ence of 8.2 mil­lion view­ers watched the se­ries 11 opener, the big­gest in 10 years.
