Chris Evans was 30 minutes late for his breakfast show – the biggest show on UK radio – this morning, meaning Vanessa Feltz had to say on an extra half hour.
The incident was handled light heartedly by Vanessa, saying “lovely listeners be gentle with me if you please I will be in charge for the next half hour”
Moira was on time for the 6:30 news though, allowing Vanessa to say “Thank You Moira” on the radio for the very first time after the bulletin.
Chris’ first link was out of the 7am news where he sung along with his Wise Buddah jingle and made no mention of his late arrival, but did say the show was dedicated to anyone who missed the first half hour. He said it was “probably the best, the very best since we started our five and a half year run. Seriously, catch up with it on iPlayer. It was off the chart.”
He did however say thank you to “Lady Vanessa” in his second link, who would have made her way to her next show on BBC London 94.9 a little later than normal.
