Where is the disambiguation link?[edit]

I was trying to link to Chris Evans (actor from the Fantastic Four) movie and instead this page keeps popping up.→ R Young {yakłtalk} 22:57, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

Is the article about the Australian politician going to be written sometime soon. Otherwise this is a pointless disambig page. Pcb21| Pete 23:34, 29 Nov 2004 (UTC)
I've added the American actor, Chris Evans; as he's about to star in Fantastic Four I imagine someone will write an article on him in due course. I guess this is just another one of those cases where a person is massively famous here in the UK, and unheard of pretty much everywhere else. Rje 01:23, Feb 23, 2005 (UTC)
There is now the more accurate link to all Chris Evans worldwide. Btw, I have decapitalised the heading (above) as it was giving me a headache--TimothyJacobson (talk) 14:50, 7 October 2010 (UTC)

Chris Evans (computer technician)[edit]

I've added this, as despite previous statements there is Google evidence as such. Found this article on Ananova: http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_104602.html I have actually seen him in the newspapers and on local TV. The newspapers and local TV both reported as youngest in the world, not the UK, so when I can find further proof I might write something.

Should be added, if notable, to the disambiguation page. Rgds, --Trident13 (talk) 13:04, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Early career[edit]

Mention to Evan's early career on BSB (Before BSkyB) as a presenter on their Channel The Power Station should be given - Anon

I was just about to mention that - I remember watching him on BSB (Not BSkyB) Parrot of Doom (talk) 11:52, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Date of birth? 1965 (wrong according to his recent radio comments "I'm entering my 50th year")? Or 1966? IRH 16/04/2015

BBC dates[edit]

These are wrong. We have one sentence stating his breakfast show ran 1995-99, and another saying it ended in 2000. There is also a problem in the previous section. I don't know all the facts but there is contradiction here.

Extra note, Chris Evans was hosting the Big Breakfast with Gaby Roslin as early as 1992. It says 1994-1996 in the description under the photo. Those dates are inaccurate. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2.100.216.254 (talk) 22:34, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

No references[edit]

This article is currently rated "B-Class" acc. to some Wiki-project, despite lacking any reputable citations whatsoever. "Z-Class" more like. Total fan page. --DaveG12345 (talk) 00:52, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Think that situation has slightly changed - add 40+ refs, and I have resultantly removed some tags. Rgds, --Trident13 (talk) 13:04, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

Gerry Ryan[edit]

I know I might be jumping on some sort of band wagon, but shouldn't there be some reference on how Gerry Ryan (the late Irish broadcaster) helped his career? Here's a link to one source about it: link to source —Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.76.29.209 (talk) 20:19, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

Is anyone going to do anything about this? I know if I do it, someone will just revert the page to its previous condition. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.1.100.8 (talk) 12:27, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
I'd say go for it! If you add the source with it, there shouldn't be a problem. TheRetroGuy (talk) 12:32, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Edited, however, I have no idea how to put in a reference after it. Can some-one do this for me? (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.77.62.173 (talk)

Books[edit]

Surely his autobiographies should also be listed. One is called "It's Not What You Think", but I can't remember the name of the other one, else I'd have added them--TimothyJacobson (talk) 19:50, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Just seen it's called "Memoirs of a Fruitcake" and isn't out yet. Will add them when it is--TimothyJacobson (talk) 19:52, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
The latter seems to also be advertised as "It's Not About Me: From Billie to Breakfast"--TimothyJacobson (talk) 14:59, 7 October 2010 (UTC)
I have listed the both books now (the latter using both titles). Feel free to amend, but please comment on this page so I can learn from my mistakes--TimothyJacobson (talk) 18:24, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

Ethnicity[edit]

I removed the reference to Ethnicity because 1. It started as a joke, when ethnicity was originally given as "Ginger". 2. According to the Office of National Statistics, ethnicity is self -defined. You can't just say that because someone looks white then they are "White British". 3. It is not relevant to encyclopaedic content. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jiver2 (talkcontribs) 10:00, 17 June 2011 (UTC)

Yesterday I noticed that the reference to Ethnicity in the picture panel heading had been restored but no reason was given. This may have been an error and I have removed it again. I had to trace the other editor by deduction, I believe it is an unregistered user 83.218.31.112, who I note has been suspected of sockpuppetry. To this user, I would be glad to know your reason for including ethnicity as a Biographical fact, as it seems to me that normally this kind of information should not be entered as it is unverified. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jiver2 (talkcontribs) 11:34, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Lede too short?[edit]

Sorry, Thumperward (tag 19/5/13), I can’t see your point about my lede being too short. Any more would simply be a repetitive list of shows and awards, only interesting to the fan club. These would not impact on the general reader. I modestly reckon to be a pretty good lede-writer, and I think the present one achieves its aim - short career précis and defining of notability. If you can specify what elements you feel are missing, I would be happy to review my own work critically. Valetude (talk) 15:18, 30 June 2013 (UTC)

PS Respectfully removing the 'lede too short' tag, in the absence of further comments. Valetude (talk) 16:26, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

More recent image[edit]

Is a more recent image available? This is what Evans actually looks like these days - [1].217.38.79.253 (talk) 08:57, 23 March 2016 (UTC)

I think you are being unkind and have deliberately picked an unflatering image, this is entirely more appropriate https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CkTGcRCWkAAiX_L.jpg

Thank you — Preceding unsigned comment added by Filagaer (talkcontribs) 11:12, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

That link no longer works. But I think it's unlikely that an alternative image can be copied directly from the Daily Mail, now matter how much more realistic it might be. Many Wikipedia articles rely on photos of a subject in their "prime". I would imagine Mr Evans is quite careful about his public image. Martinevans123 (talk) 19:51, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
