Chris Evans, 53, made quite the revelation on his Tuesday morning Virgin Radio show, after he divulged he might have contacted the virus. He recalled the period a few weeks ago where everyone had this mysterious flu-like illness, but no one knew what it was.
But the admission might have come as a bit of a shock to many listeners, who are currently isolating themselves under government advice, for fear of spreading the virus further.
With the show’s location based in London Bridge, Chris and his team decided to create a temporary studio away from the central London news tower, to avoid travelling into the capital unnecessary.
The new studio is currently on the host’s boat that he keeps moored at the bottom o his garden on the Thames, and the conversation started after he announced they probably wouldn’t be needing it anymore.
“I went to go and check on the studio on the boat, which is still there if we require it, but don’t think we will,” he said.

“I’m not saying I’m qualified to say this though,” he giggled.
“So many of us and this really weird cold, two or three weeks ago and if four out of five most prominent people on the telly talking about coronavirus, if they can get it – they’re only mild symptoms, a bit of a sniffle and dry cough…” He shrugged, referring to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who announced he had tested positive for COVID-19 last week.
