It seems like Chris Evans' decision to take a holiday from his new Radio 2 breakfast show just six week in, is not going in his favour.
A report in the Daily Mail suggests listeners prefer his less famous holiday stand-in Richard Allinson.
[i]One listener said: 'Richard Allinson's show was quite superb this morning. No shouting, no gimmicks, just great music selection and light chat and banter. The guy breezes in and delivers a show that makes the slot sound like his own.'
Another added: 'It is a great way to start the day – gentle wake up instead of the discordant rousting.[/i]
Various similar comments are also reported by the newspaper [link=http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1255008/Why-Radio-2-listeners-love-Chris-Evans-holiday-stand-Richard-Allinson.html]here[/link].
Chris is apparently taking time off to work on his next book.
A Radio 2 spokesman told: 'We're extremely happy with Chris's breakfast show and are pleased that listeners are enjoying Richard Allinson while he sits in for Chris this week.'
[b]What do you think? Was Chris right to take a holiday so soon into his new show?[/b]
