Chris Evans and pals kicked out of pub after ‘sexist comment’ to barmaid

Radio star Chris Evans and his celebrity pals were thrown out of a pub after a barmaid complained about a sexist remark.

Virgin breakfast host Evans was with a group of 20, including ­ex-England footballer Ray Parlour and TalkSport presenters Alan Brazil and Mike Parry.

The group were asked to leave the Wheatsheaf pub in South London’s Borough Market after it was claimed an inappropriate comment was made towards a female member of staff.

There is no suggestion that Evans, 53, or his sports chums were to blame. One eyewitness said: “Everyone was in good ­spirits, clearly celebrating.


“Then one of the male members of the group made a sexist remark to the barmaid, who reported it back to her manager.

“The next thing the whole group were booted out of the bar.” Sources say Evans was not aware of the raunchy comments as he was sitting away from where the incident took place.

Pub-lover Evans owned three boozers at one stage.

When he shot to fame in the 1990s he was frequently pictured getting into mischief at pubs with celeb pals like Paul Gascoigne and axed BBC presenter Danny Baker.

Evans jumped ship from the BBC to the Virgin station, deciding to quit Britain’s most popular radio programme after revelations about stars’ pay.

The pub where the row took place was targeted in the 2017 London Bridge terror attacks.

Staff and the pub company ­refused to comment.

But a source said: “There’s no hard feelings and the group have been told they’re welcome back at the pub.”

No celebs are thought to have used sexist language.
