Virgin Radio breakfast show host Chris Evans, 54, stunned his co-stars after realising he shared a surprising connection with F1 racer Lewis Hamilton’s dog. Lewis and his bulldog named Roscoe, made headlines last week when he announced his four-legged friend’s new diet, something Chris knows all about.

It’s had a similar effect on me

“Lewis Hamilton’s dog has gone vegan!” Chris announced, reading the headlines.

“And he’s loving it!”

The news came as a shock to some people who took to social media to share their “concerns” about his diet change and others who praised the initiative.

Chris made his own little joke by mocking the fact Roscoe didn’t have a choice in the matter.

“By his own [choice] apparently, nothing to do with Lewis,” he and the team laughed.

“He sorted it all out himself.”

Regardless, the former BBC host read that Lewis had noticed Roscoe was feeling better in himself after the change.

“He’s already noticing the health benefits,” Chris said.

“Lewis revealed the news by posting a picture of Roscoe on his own Instagram page,” which has 180k followers.

He read out the Instagram post where Lewis, who follows a plant-based diet himself, wrote: “Hey guys, so Roscoe is now fully vegan.

“Since he has gone vegan, his coat is much softer, his swollen paws have healed up, he is no longer limping with pain of arthritis and his breathing has opened up.”

And it seemed to resonate with Chris more than he first realised.

“It’s has a similar effect on me,” he explained, as the radio DJ knows all too well about living a vegan lifestyle.

“It was our fourth anniversary as a family going vegan on 1 July,” he told listeners, and then noted some difference in his own health that could be down to his diet.

He noticed his hayfever had disappeared and hoped that it was down to his new life-style, sharing the same relief Roscoe is said to have.

But he admitted he is suffering with neck pain.

“I don’t think that’s anything to do with your eating,” his co-star jokingly whispered as Chris scoffed, pondering where neck pain actually goes after the pain goes away.

“Does it just disappear? Or what?”

He was adamant to get to the bottom of it and maybe someday he will!

The Chris Evans Breakfast Show airs weekdays at 6am on Virgin Radio.
