Instantly recognisable with his mass of ginger hair and bottle-top glasses, Chris Evans is probably Britain's most successful broadcaster and has an extraordinary instinct for using the intimacy of radio and TV to communicate with people. Endless rumours and turmoil have surrounded his wildly unpredictable career. He has interviewed numerous celebrities, dated a string of beautiful women and is now married to the pop singer Billie, 17 years his junior. Yet for a man who constantly lives his life in the public eye, there's an awful lot about Chris Evans that we really don't know. How did a gawky youth from the suburbs of a quiet Northern town build his own media empire in London and become a household name and multimillionare? This compelling biography explores the truth behind the Chris Evans phenomenon.
