Talk of the Town: Virgin Radio DJ Chris Evans spends PS75,000 for a five-week getaway with his family in a Hampshire hotel

Broadcaster Chris Evans has joined the millions enjoying a Great British staycation this year – albeit in a slightly more luxurious style than the rest of us.

The Virgin Radio DJ and his family checked in for a lengthy stay at a five-star Hampshire hotel, I can reveal, booking a huge suite of rooms costing a hefty £15,000 a week.

Situated within more than 100 acres, the hotel has been named one of the world’s best and boasts all the amenities possible to keep its A-list clients occupied.

‘Chris and the family have stayed for five weeks,’ my source tells me. ‘They’ve taken a suite of rooms which would probably cost about £15,000 a week. So, on the face of it, it’s cost him £75,000 – and that’s before he’s had so much as a toasted sandwich on room service.’

However, I’m not sure the hotel is the type of establishment to sell midnight sarnies. 

Instead, it offers guests mouth-watering £75 a head tasting menus, and should anyone fancy some bubbles, Krug champagne comes in at more than £200 – for a mere half bottle.

Evans, 55, checked in with his wife Natasha, 40, and their children – Noah, 12, Eli, nine, and twins Walt and Boo, who are about to turn three.

Neither the hotel nor Evans’s spokesman would comment last night on his stay.

But it seems unlikely that the former Top Gear host – who previously earned up to £2.5 million a year during his stint at the BBC as one of the Corporation’s highest paid talents – will struggle with the bill. 

After all, ‘as a valued customer, he’d get special rates,’ I’m assured.

And it’s not been all pleasure and no work for poor Chris during his staycation – last weekend he took a break from all that relaxing to host Carfest South, the UK’s biggest fundraising festival, which he created to raise funds for children’s charities.

Luckily, he had a swimming pool in which to unwind after a hard day at the office!

Celebs spouting nonsense

She studied biomedical science at University College London, so Chloe Delevingne is one smart cookie. 

So I was puzzled to learn that the socialite is plugging a £399 electric blanket that claims it can help you burn off 600 calories in 30 minutes.

Chloe, 36, told her Instagram followers it can ‘stimulate happy chemicals, boost collagen and reduce stress’. 

Thankfully, the company has a 30-day return policy if you’re not happy… 

The Great British break-in

Has Great British Bake Off judge and petrol-head Paul Hollywood had his collection of flash cars and motorcycles targeted by raiders?

I only ask because the 55-year-old TV baker is upgrading the garage he keeps them in at his Kent home after thieves stole a considerable amount of what has been described as ‘valuable equipment’. 

After taking police advice, Hollywood wants permission for a new single-storey structure to house ‘motor vehicles and equipment’ on his eight-acre property.

Following the raid, police chiefs told him to ‘provide secure storage within monitoring distance from the main house’.
