Now, the 49-year-old has been seen 'retching' at the side of the track after driving an Audi R8 V10 with co-presenter Sabine Schmitz, affirming many people’s claims he is not perhaps fit for the job.
According to a report in The Sun, Sabine ‘screeched to a halt’ after noticing the Radio 2 DJ felt ill in the passenger’s seat. He was then phtographed bending over at the side of the race track, with the paper claiming he was 'throwing up'.
With only months to go until the reboot supposedly hits screens (it is due to air 5 May, according to Evans), hopefully he will be able to pull something out of the bag.
