Chris Evans says he’s lost weight since joining Virgin Radio but jokes the new hours are ‘wearing thin’ on his family

CHRIS Evans says he lost weight and stopped snoring after joining Virgin Radio.

The Breakfast Show host, 52, chatted to Dr Michael Mosley today about the telly doctor’s UK tour and new book The Fast 800, revealing how he’s transformed his health and is training again for the London Marathon.

Despite rising in the early hours to make it into work for 6am, Chris admitted he’s sleeping better than he has in years and told listeners: “I’ve lost weight recently.

“I’ve changed my diet and I’m training for the marathon again so this is a good time of year. And other circumstances have changed, so I just feel better about everything.

“But I’ve stopped snoring. The reason I know I’ve stopped snoring is because my throat is no longer sore.”

Dr Mosley confirmed he’s on the right track: “Snoring is largely about fat deposits in the neck.

“One of the great things about losing weight fast you sleep better, which in turn means you feel better and get less sugary cravings.”

Dr Mosley also spoke of how shedding pounds and eating anti-inflammatory fruit and veg can fight the blues.

Chris quit BBC Radio 2 after eight years and joined Virgin Radio last month.

He admitted he’s happier, but had to sell the idea of working six days a week to his wife Natasha.

Chris, who is on air weekday mornings and Sundays from 10am-1pm, told listeners of his weekend routine: “My wife Tash came in this weekend with the kids, we had a lovely day on Saturday.

“Stayed in a nice hotel around the corner.

“I thought we can combine culture with the kids. We went for a lovely dinner around the corner which was gorgeous. A local gem”.

“So we get up in the morning on a Sunday and the kids go to the pool.

“I go into the station, I thought maybe that will work.

“But it’s already wearing thin, she’s seen through my ruse!”
