Evans returns to television

BBC Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans is making a return to television after a three year break to cover Adrian Chiles on the BBC's One Show.

BBC1 controller Jay Hunt revealed the hiring at the Edinburgh TV festival on Friday: "He's a very different broadcaster now if you listen to his Radio 2 show. The One Show is a magazine show with light journalistic items and that's absolutely something Chris can do."

His last regular television work was OFI Sunday for ITV in 2005, six months after his first appearance on Radio 2 where he now hosts the drivetime show. OFI was canceled after just five shows.

He will cover for Chiles next year.
