Chris Evans: ‘I want nits!’ Virgin Radio host makes bizarre wish to ‘fit in’

Chris Evans, 53, had his co-star’s Vassos Alexander and Rachel Horne, in stitches on Thursday morning after revealing he “wants to get nits” to fit in with family life. During a conversation about what can affect a person’s happiness, they focused on a specific element that could make people self-conscious and not good about themselves – hair.

I want enough hair to have nits to join in the family nit conversation

After a listener admitted they have been in that situation, Chris revealed that his family had suffered with nits over the weekend.

“We’ve been talking about his over the past few days, because most of my family have had nits over the weekend,” he said.

“I didn’t have them, and my kid said it’s because I don’t have enough hair.”

Vassos and Rachel sniggered in the background as Chris began to detail his very high maintenance hair routine he religiously carries out every day in order to stop “the rest of my hair falling out”.

The former BBC presenter has been very open about his hair journey as he uses multiple products including tablets and serum to prevent more hair loss.

The situation is so bad in fact, that Chris host “avoids all CCTV in shops” because of his balding.

He has previously considered getting a hair transplant and is still thinking about it today, following discovering that his hair tablets are giving off unwanted side affects that are affecting his day to day life.

But the ex Top Gear found the requirements for getting a hair transplant hilarious.

“Apparently you have to specify how much hair you might like, to see if its possible,” he giggled, baffled at how one would make that decision by themselves.

Rachel, equally confused asked: “How would you know?! Density of crop?” she joked.

It wasn’t long however before the host revealed he had the answer.

“You can specify the answer in anyway you choose,” he explained, figuring out how he would explain how much hair he would want.

“So, the question is not why would I like my hair, why, what for, how is it going to make me feel better, how is it going to improve your self esteem,” he shook his head.

Suddenly the studio erupted with laughter as his team realised what he was hinting at.

“You want nits!” Rachel exclaimed, as Vassos howled.

“Yes, I want nits! I want enough hair to have nits to join in the family nit conversation! I can get knitted!”

Not sure if that’s the best way to go about it but, each to their own, Chris!

The presenter has been self-conscious about his hair loss for quite some time, but swore by his routine before he realised the side effects.

Late last year, he informed listeners about the expert he visits who has helped him on his hair journey.

“The guy only got into it because he was going bald,” he explained: “He’s now the leading expert on how not to go bald without a transplant.

“There’s no transplant involved at all,” he said proudly.

But the host added he had no judgement on people that do choose to go under the knife: “By the way I’m not against anything you do. You do what works for you.”

The Chris Evans Breakfast Show airs weekdays at 6.30am on Virgin Radio.
