Chris Evans has said he’d take over from Jonathan Ross as host of a Friday night talk show if he was offered the job. This follows the news that Jonathan will quit the BBC in July, announced last week. He said “I would be lying if I said that if I was offered it I would say no, but I don’t think I will be offered it”. Evans started his new BBC Radio 2 breakfast show this morning.
Graham Norton (host of The Graham Norton Show which has recently been airing on Monday nights) is one of the favourites to get the Friday Night job. Jonathan Ross will bow out in July.
