The workaholic presenter also has to fit in his BBC Radio 2 breakfast show around his busy schedule and has been having trouble getting some kip
New Top Gear host Chris Evans has had acupuncture to cure insomnia, saying he was “too excited” to sleep. The workaholic DJ is to front a new series of TFI Friday, as well as hosting his morning show on Radio 2.
But he feared the early starts on top of late finishes would leave him exhausted without a good night’s kip. He complained: “Can’t sleep. I’m too excited about a show I’ve already done.”
Chris tweeted “Think the sleep thing is more about the mind. Very peaceful at the moment-ironically. Never been busier. also had some acupuncture on Monday”
But the Chinese needle treatment was a success.
Evans, 49, Tweeted his 1.9 million followers: “Now that’s what I call a sleep. Seven hours is like hibernation for me.” Later he added: “Seven hours again! Now That’s What I Call Sleep 2. Out now. At all good record snores.”
He will use his 10 weeks of annual holiday from Radio 2 to work on Top Gear.
