Chris Evans, 54, and his trusty co-star Vassos Alexander, 47, have worked together ever since the latter joined the BBC Radio 2 team as sports reporter back in 2011. Over the years they have become two peas in a pod and they’re not afraid to battle their differences out on-air in front of listeners, something Chris believes they “don’t understand”.
That’s why when me and you lock horns on the radio, people don’t get it sometimes
Before declaring his love for his best bud, the team were discussing marital issues and how to “grow” as a couple in a relationship.
“It’s well worth adding the initial awkwardness but then that will become comfortable,” Chris advised.
“Then you have to introduce this comfortable into everything then you keep growing.”
Vassos agreed: “It’s like getting out of your marital comfort zone so that you grow as a couple.”
Chris nodded before adding: “That’s why when me and you lock horns on the radio, people don’t get it sometimes.
“We do because we love each other.”
Vassos shrieked gleefully: “We do!”
The radio DJ admitted they’re “all the better” for locking horns occasionally and airing their views in front of listeners.
It comes after Chris revealed he had a blazing row with his wife Natasha over something he referred to as a “family discord.”
But he let his audience know it was all put to bed by the end of the day, although he wished they hadn’t had to “go through what we went through” as the means didn’t justify the ends.
This weekend we had a family discord,” he said.
“There were a few different perspectives going on and in the end we discovered there was an impasse and something had to be sorted.

“Due to this dislodge – and it was turbulent, definitely turbulent,” he added.
“It’s been sorted and we’re better for it but I wish we didn’t have to go through what we did have to go through.”
And contrary to popular belief, he revealed he doesn’t think there are two sides to an argument between a couple.
“When you’re having a row you’re either both right or both wrong,” he said.
“There’s never one person right or one person wrong, you’re either both rowing for the right reason or the wrong reason!”
Vassos also concurred with this sentiment, humming in agreement.
