How big spending star lives £20 million lifestyle on £2.5 million Beeb wages
ACCORDING to recent figures revealed by the BBC, Radio 2 breakfast presenter CHRIS EVANS is the corporation’s highest earning star, reportedly trousering a staggering £2.5 million a year. This lavish pay packet would easily be enough for most of us to enjoy the luxury lifestyle of our dreams. Yet Evans seems to live way beyond his means. For example, he recently splashed out £12 million – the equivalent of nearly 6 years’ salary – on a single Ferrari to add to the glittering collection of classic vehicles he keeps at his palatial £50 million home in Berkshire. Indeed, big spender Evans’s outgoings have been estimated at more than £20 million a year. So how does the former TFI Friday host make up the whopping £17.5 million shortfall in his annual income? We decided to unearth the real facts about Chris Evans’s finances.
The truth of the matter is, Evans’s morning gig on Radio 2 takes up just 3 hours a day, leaving him plenty of time to do a variety of part-time jobs to top up his bank balance.
