As the nation is coming to terms with working from home, Chris Evans and his team launched their show from his boat instead of the studio last week.
In wake of the current health crisis affecting the UK, plenty of people have taken to working from home, and some of the biggest names in radio are no exception.
Virgin Radio breakfast show host Chris Evans, however, opted for a more leftfield arrangement last week – he presented his show from a boat!
Where does Chris Evans live?
The 53-year-old shares a mansion in Ascot, Berkshire with wife Natasha Shishmanian and their four children.
Last year, he splashed out £4million on a five-bedroom Thames-side property in Marlow, Buckinghamshire near his best mate Tom Kerridge.
However, Virgin Radio is based in the heart of London, which Chris recently branded a “commuter hub” because of the sheer number of people who come in and out of London Bridge.
As a result, Chris’ boat, Sun Star, moored up at the bottom of his garden outside his house in Marlow, 36 miles west of the Breakfast Show’s usual home in the capital.
Virgin Radio’s official Twitter page shared a picture of Chris’ boat docked on the river behind his house.
