EVANS ABOVE!

How big spend­ing star lives £20 mil­lion life­style on £2.5 mil­lion Beeb wages

VIZ - - News -

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.

TFI pay­day: Chris keeps the cof­fers topped up with a cor­nu­copia of part-time jobs.
