Chris Evans (born April 1, 1966, in Warrington, England) is a British celebrity. He married ex-singer Billie Piper in Las Vegas in May 2001.
He is a former presenter of all the following shows:
Channel 4's The Big Breakfast
Channel 4's Don't Forget Your Toothbrush
BBC Radio 1's breakfast show (fired in 1996 for not turning up to work, and demanding Fridays off)
Channel 4's TFI Friday (fired in 1999 after viewing figures plummeted)
Virgin Radio's breakfast show (fired in 2001 for failing to turn up for work after a drinking binge)
He was part owner of Virgin Radio, until he sold his share in the company to the Scottish Media Group.
On June 28, 2001 he was sacked by Virgin Radio after he allegedly went on a drinking spree and failed to turn up to present the Virgin Radio breakfast show. He attempted to sue Virgin Radio claiming that he was unfairly dismissed and denied share options worth £8.6m. On June 26, 2003 the judge decided that he had been fairly dismissed and was not entitled to the share options. Virgin Radio countersued and Evans was ordered to pay £1m towards Virgin Radio's legal costs.
He was included in the 100 Worst Britons poll, at number 12.
