Chris Evans presents a new live channel 4 show in which celebrities perform hair raising stunts.

So he's not really on holiday from Radio 2.

I know. We've had to suffer the trails (or should that be "trials"?) for a good couple of weeks. Definitely worth giving a wide berth!

If he's not being heard on Radio 2 at the moment then surely he is on holiday from Radio 2?

Not for long enough, either.

The trailer I saw was a very unentertaining fake. Since this series has gone ahead I assume no-one was killed or badly injured.

Hang on, is it live from Liverpool?

I watched the first half hour. Chris announcing all the celebrities on. ( Sorry shouting the celebrities on )Laughing. Then a few guests came on with Jack Osbourne who is one of the presenters of the week. He looks bloody stupid with his beard. Chris kept saying it's 'fearless and famous' - then apologised saying 'I've said that all day'. I don't think Chris has got it in him anymore like the old TFI days. He's best suited to 'The One Show' type shows. Clare Balding looks well out of place. I suppose it's the first day. You might regonise some celebs. I think no one is allowed too get hurt Laughing - Just like the old days when stunts went wrong on TV. I sum it up. ' Worst thing I've seen on TV in ages' Thought the festive period TV was bad. This was S***.

I don't agree. He's bloody awful on The One Show and his presence has ruined it completely.

The reason he's doing all this stuff is that he has no profesional integrity at all and will do anything that attracts attention.

My view that Evans is "desperate to be loved" is unchanged. He's a prat.

OMG! We watched the beginning, a little in the middle and the end- it was truly awful- 15 minutes of terrible telly painfully stretched over two hours. It was a bit like that awful show Gladiators but without any interesting people or point to it. We won’t be watching the rest of it.

Dragon Duncan Ballantyne doesn't like it. He tweeted to Evans "Sorry mate but F&F is terrible" and Evans replied that, actually, ratings build as the show goes on.

But Evans is lying - the show has lost a third of it's audience since starting on Sunday, and loses viewers through the course of each show. But, never let the facts get in the way of the ego, eh?
