Radio 2 DJ Zoe Ball has congratulated her friend, and fellow Radio 2 DJ, Chris Evans branding him a “Legend” after he announced he’s quitting the Radio 2 Breakfast Show. Evans took over from Sir Terry Wogan as the host of Radio 2’s flagship programme in 2010.
Ball, who was the first woman to be the sole presenter of the Radio 1 breakfast show, was one of many stars to praise Evans following his shock announcement live on air.
Ball tweeted: “Flippin ‘eck. CHRIS EVANS. You absolute legend.
“Always been such an inspiration, all learnt so much from you. Proper shocker on a Monday morning. You will be most missed Mr Big.”
