Chris Evans joins Alex on One Show

Chris Evans was introduced to The One Show viewers as Alex Jones' "new bit on the side" when he joined the popular programme.

Jones started on the BBC One show on Monday and presents with comedian Jason Manford four nights a week.

Evans replaces Manford on Fridays and was pictured sitting with his co-host in a bath of batter as the show began.

Jones, wearing a glamorous, low cut blue dress, then introduced Evans as "my new bit on the side".

Evans said he was "very happy" to be on the show and told Jones: "Alex, you look amazing."

The pair's guests were current Doctor Who, actor Matt Smith, and his co-star Karen Gillan.

Smith described his first meeting with Evans after they were introduced by "Bills" at a village fete.

When the actor explained "Bills" was actress Billie Piper, Evans added "ex-wife of mine by the way. I went there" prompting Smith to shout "high five!"
