Chris Evans, 53, has had a busy couple of months with all his charity work in aid of the NHS amid the coronavirus pandemic. But he admitted the sleepless nights were all worth it for the joy of raising money for a great cause that’s helping so many people across the nation.

I may have to bid for it back!

The UK health service is currently under a lot of pressure due to the relentless COVID-19, but Chris, fellow celebrities and members of the public alike are playing their part in trying to make this awful situation a little bit easier.

The former BBC radio DJ has been running numerous auctions for various charities and his latest silent auction saw pals including Holly Willoughby offer one lucky bidder a lunch date with herself and Matt Baker contributed his first piece of art work.

Other items up for action included Sir Rod Stewart’s Cartier watch, Will Smith’s golf clubs, a guitar from Taylor Swift, Ant & Dec NTA Awards, Sharleen Spiteri’s Texas Flight Case, and many, many more.

The initiative ended on May 8 and aimed to raise £1million, but it soared past that goal and racked up a whopping £1.2million in total.

Before that, he held a garage sale selling the entirety of his own garage, which raised over £500,000.

It seems he has the flare for auctions and raising money for generous causes so it was on to the next one for our Chris!

On Thursday last week, the host discussed another garage sale he was running, that now appears to have ended.

Among items were a “posh car’s tool belt” and a Fozzie Bear cookie jar.

But it seems he had some regrets about putting up the biscuit tin in the first place.

“It’s currently at £125, lovely patina on his hat – patina equals posh word for a little bit damaged, they use this word in the car world all the time.

“I don’t know why we’re getting rid of this by the way. I love it,” he confessed.

“I may have to bid for it back!”

He soon realised his actions may have consequences, so he added: “Please don’t tell Tash!”

But the cookie jar hasn’t been the only thing Chris has been sad to see go.

During his first garage auction, he and Natasha had put up their large Roche Bobois sofa because it was too big for their living room.

And while it was for a good cause, Chris seemed regretful.

“We now have bids for the big Roche Bobois corner sofa,” he told his listeners at the time, sounding sorrowful.

“It is the only material regret because we don’t have room for this in our new living room, it’s just the best sofa ever!”

The sofa designer is a French retailer of top-end furniture collections, sofas, and accessories, with used items sometimes going for over a whopping £13,000.

No wonder the former BBC radio host was disappointed to see it go!

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