Chris Evans or Chris Moyles?

The Manchester Evening News is reporting that Chris Evans had a poor turn-out for his book signing at the Trafford Centre, with just five people waiting half an hour before his arrival.

And apparently the first person in the queue was only there because she thought it was Chris Moyles.

Chris was at the WH Smith store to sign copies of his new autobiography, taking leave from his Radio 2 afternoon show. Staff put out a tannoy announcement to tell shoppers about the guest, and another 25 people joined the queue.

He started his radio career in Manchester at Piccadilly Radio, but it seems his local roots are long forgotton. One woman waiting in line told the [link=]newspaper[/link]: "I dragged (my daughter) Natasha along and she only came because she thought I meant Chris Moyles. She doesn't know Chris Evans is."

Another woman in the queue admitted that she didn't listen to Chris Evans on the radio and wasn't to planning to read the signed book herself. "I came to loads of book signings. If you come to a few of these before Christmas, you don't have to worry about buying presents".

Chris said he was not concerned at the low turnout for his signing, and put it down to a late change of venue. He told the MEN: "I don't really mind that not many people are here. It's not going to be like Peter Andre is it?."
