CHRIS Evans has announced on his BBC Radio 2 show that his wife Natasha is expecting twins.

He said on his programme: "I'm looking forward to lots of curries and cravings."

Evans added he had tried to break the news to his five-year-old son Eli.

He said on the show that Eli "has got a shock and a half coming, he's got a double shock coming".

He added: "We tried to tell him, he doesn't quite get it yet. Eli is mum's best mate. That is going to change, my friend."

Evans broke the news to his listeners by asking for advice about having twins.

He then said: "Mrs Evans is, she is. Double trouble, twin turbo. We have known for a while, obviously. She is definitely the mother, no doubt about that."

He added: "I did a bit of work for TNT once upon a time when I worked in a warehouse and when you work for TNT you see more TNT lorries, when you buy a Mini for the first time you see more Minis on the road, and when you begin to be involved in the world of twins suddenly twins everywhere, they are not as rare as you think."
