BBC Radio 2 DJ loses voice on air

chrisevans_304BBC Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans was forced to hand over his breakfast show to a colleague after losing his voice.

The award-winning host showed up to present his program as usual but struggled to speak to his nine million listeners.

"Is this going to work? I don't think it is," he said at the beginning of the show as he croaked his morning welcome adding: "I have tried everything."

Then he gave up and handed the mic over to sports presenter Vassos Alexander.(pictured with Evans)

Alexander said later: "Those were the longest three hours of my life. Chris still did all the hard work though, I was just his ventriloquist dummy!"

Evans gave Alexander tips on how to present the show, including how to talk over the jingles.

The program, which Evans took over in January 2010 from long-time presenter Sir Terry Wogan, has been nominated for breakfast show of the year at this year's Sony Radio Academy awards
