Chris Evans is one of the hosts of BBC America's automotive series "Top Gear."

Chris Evans is one of Britain's most high-profile and successful presenters. He was born in 1966, in Warrington, England. His entrepreneurial zeal emerged at an early age, when he ran the local newsagents in his home town of Warrington and set up his own Kiss-o-gram and Private Detective agencies. He started his broadcasting career at Piccadilly Radio then moved to GLR, where his infamous "Round at Chris'" Saturday morning show attracted a huge cult following; he later took the format to Virgin 1215.

In 1993, Evans formed his own company called Ginger Productions to formulate a brand new variety show for Saturday nights: "Don't Forget Your Toothbrush." Devised, written and performed by Evans, the ratings peaked at a combined six million viewers. He revitalized BBC Radio 1 with his "Radio 1 Breakfast Show" before bowing out to concentrate on his unique end-of-the-week TV show on Channel 4, "TFI Friday," which ran for five years, before finishing on December 22, 2000, with a show hosted by Elton John.

In 2010 Evans took over BBC Radio 2's "Breakfast Show" following the retirement of Irish-born broadcasting legend, Sir Terry Wogan. The show is currently the UK's most listened to — with over ten million listeners tuning-in each week.
