Chris Evans giggles while performing a COVID test on himself as he stands on stage in front of an audience at Car-Fest

Chris Evans could barely stop laughing when he performed a COVID test on himself in front of an audience at Car-Fest in Cheshire on Friday.

Administering a swab up his nostril while standing on stage, the radio host, 55, struggled to keep a straight face as the audience watched on.

Speaking into a microphone while holding the apparatus inches from his face, a gleeful Chris held up the NHS packaging for all to see.

The presenter was dressed casually in a blue, graphic print T-shirt and made sure to keep the beating sunshine at bay by wearing both sunglasses and a baseball hat.

Accessorising with a colourful neck scarf, doting father Chris appeared keen to reassure the crowd he was negative, with thousands of car fanatics expected to turn up for the festival’s – founded by Chris himself – tenth anniversary.

Perching himself on the edge of the stage, Chris peered over his sunglasses while checking his results.

Chris organised the Car-Fest to help raise money for charities while also getting to share his love of cars with ticket holders.

The radio host’s outing comes five months after he underwent surgery to have kidney stones removed.

Chris originally thought he was just suffering with trapped wind before being rushed to hospital in agonising pain in February, where he was diagnosed with having kidney stones.

He spent two nights in hospital following his trip to A&E with crippling stomach pains.

Speaking to The Sun at the time, Chris told how ultrasound and CT scans showed he had a large kidney stone which doctors monitored for 48 hours before he was sent home.

He said: ‘I thought I had trapped wind and general ”man pain” most of Saturday. I took paracetamol and waited for nature to take its course…. that didn’t happen.

‘Late Saturday night my wife called 111 and we were advised to go to A&E. Which we did. After an ultrasound scan and CT scan, it was clear I had a kidney stone on the move.

‘I was subsequently admitted to a ward where I was looked after until I came back home on Monday evening. I still have the stone, and if it doesn’t come out soon I will need to go back in and have it removed.’

Chris described the doctors, nurses and other medical staff as ‘amazing’ and thanked them for taking care of him.

The star has sons Noah, 11; Eli, nine, and two-year-old twins Walt and Boo with his golfer wife Natasha Shishmania, 40.
