The Scotsman - - Brexit - By LUCY MAPSTONE

Chris Evans has said he will try to in­volve his fam­ily – in­clud­ing his chil­dren – as much as he can in his new break­fast ra­dio show.

Evans will host his first show on Vir­gin Ra­dio on 21 Jan­uary as he re­turns to the sta­tion al­most 20 years af­ter he left.

It will be his first time on the air­waves since he left the BBC Ra­dio 2 Break­fast Show in De­cem­ber.

Evans said that guest ap­pear­ances from his fam­ily, his wife Natasha Shish­ma­nian and their chil­dren, are to be ex­pected.

He said: “I have been chal- 0 Chris Evans starts his new break­fast show on 21 Jan­uary

lenged, to what ex­tent will I in­volve my fam­ily in order to make the brand-new Vir­gin Ra­dio Break­fast Show a hit. The an­swer is in­fi­nite.

“I’m sorry but that’s just the way it is, it’s all hands-on deck here in­clud­ing the lit­tle ones!”

The 52-year-old pre­sen­ter had been at the BBC sta­tion since 2005, and had the cov­eted break­fast slot since Jan­uary 2010.

In his fi­nal show at Ra­dio 2 last month, Evans in­vited Shish­ma­nian to join him for an emo­tional ap­pear­ance where she read out a let­ter writ­ten by him in the voice of their sons Noah, nine and Eli, six.

Noah has ap­peared on Evans’ for­mer break­fast show a num­ber of times.

The Chris Evans Break­fast Show starts at 6:30am on Mon­day 21 Jan­uary on Vir­gin Ra­dio.
