52-year-old Chris Evans Stated “I have said yes,” while on the BBC One’s The One Show. However, he has not signed a contract as of yet.
“Everyone puts it off and tries and keep it a secret. No, announce now. We’re doing it now,” he said.
Evans is about to swap the BBC Radio 2 breakfast show for the rival slot on Virgin Radio.
He said he had discussed his appearance with Strictly commissioning editor Jo Wallace.
“We had a cup of tea and she said, ‘Are you up for it? This is what you need to know about it, this is the minimum, this is the maximum, it’s not as easy as maybe you imagine it is.’ But I know it isn’t.”
