Chris Evans on losing wedding ring the day after marrying wife Natasha: 'It slipped off!'


Virgin Radio host Chris Evans, 55, has been married to his wife Natasha Shishmanian since 2007, when the two tied the knot during a glorious sunny wedding in Portugal. But the day after they said their nuptials and vowed to stay together till death do them part, the radio DJ went and lost his wedding ring when swimming in the sea.

I’m so glad you said that! You’re right, it is just a ring, it is your wedding ring but it is just a ring

Clearly something was looking out for them though, as after they managed to find the band on the sea-bed they realised it must be a sign they were meant to be.

Chris has been married several times before; to Loose Women host Carol McGiffin from 1991-1998 and actress and now good friend Billie Piper from 2001-2007, and she was also in attendance at his wedding to Natasha, with whom he shares four children.

The admission about the ring came after his co-star Vassos Alexander admitted he too had lost his own ring while swimming.

Telling listeners the sad news, Chris announced: “Vassos lost his wedding ring today on the way to work.

“It didn’t fall off while he was on his bike, didn’t vibrate off while was running – it slipped off while he was open water swimming in The Serpentine at 5ish .”

Vassos quickly interjected: “I would say the exact time of wedding ring loss was 5:12am this morning,” he joked.

“You don’t seem that bothered about it?” Chris wondered as his colleague shrugged.

“Well, it’s just a ring!” he admitted.

Chris seemed relieved as he nodded in agreement: “I agree!

“I’m so glad you said that! You’re right, it is just a ring, it is your wedding ring but it is just a ring!

“You’re still in love with the person who you married, regardless of the ring!”

After asking if he’ll get a replacement one, Vassos replied: “I will get another one, just out of respect to Caroline,” he explained.

“I am married and people do look!”

Noticing Chris wasn’t wearing his own ring, Vassos asked the question which led the host to tell his own tale of wedding ring loss.

“I have a wedding ring but it kept falling off,” he said.

“And Tash said, ‘Just don’t wear it, it’s not meant to be.’ But I know where it is and I wore it for a while!”

He went on: “It actually slipped off because we got married in Portugal and went swimming in the sea the next day.

“Both of us went down to the bottom of the sea-bed to find it and when we did, we both went, ‘This is a sign! It’s going to be alright! We’re going to stay married forever!'” he laughed.

Vassos said: “Well, we’ve been married for 19 years yesterday, and as we enter our 20 years of being married, a couple of days without me having a wedding ring – we’ll survive it!”

Pointing at his finger, he added in amazement: “My finger still has the indent of where my ring has been over the past 19 years!”

Chris suggested getting a tattoo instead; something that’s become an alternative in recent years to a physical and in some cases, losable, ring.

The Chris Evans Breakfast Show airs weekdays at 6:30am on Virgin Radio.
