BBC Comments On The Sun’s Smear Campaign Against Chris Evans | TV News
The BBC has rebuffed attacks by the Sun newspaper for printing what it calls “unfounded nonsense” about Chris Evans’ behaviour at Radio 2 since he became host of the Top Gear revival. The Sun has claimed that the star has been “out of control” and that he is becoming “more volatile”:
“Evans, 50, has upset staff at BBC Radio 2 as he struggles to balance his TV role with his hit breakfast show”.
“And the Sun can reveal his radio backroom team are becoming increasingly concerned about his outbursts and diva-style behaviour”.
Radio 2 Controller Bob Shennan commented in response:
“The assertion that Chris Evans’ behaviour at Radio 2 since beginning work at Top Gear has been in any way below BBC acceptable levels is completely untrue”.
