A popular U.K. radio presenter was forced off the air and to abandon BBC studios in the middle of his morning show yesterday when a fire alarm went off, according to a report in the U.K. TELEGRAPH.
The RADIO 2 host of THE CHRIS EVANS BREAKFAST SHOW left the studio abruptly this morning after informing listeners there had been a "situation." Speaking to his 9.2 million listeners, EVANS said: "It may well be temporary or it may not, but we have to go off the air for a while, OK."
A number of fire engines were reportedly spotted outside the BBC building in central LONDON. The incident was quickly resolved, with EVANS returning to the studio just before 8a after 28 minutes off the air, ready to "rock and roll."
