TOP TV and radio presenter, Chris Evans, made a couple’s wedding day at one of our best riverside hotels extra-special when he popped down to drive them away – in his own Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

The BBC star talked exclusively to the Observer after he dashed from his Radio 2 breakfast programme on Tuesday to drive Stephen and Jaquie Elliott away from their nuptials at Windsor’s Sir Christopher Wren House Hotel before they took off on their honeymoon to the Maldives.

Chris, who lives in Ascot, also had wife Natasha and sons Noah and Eli with him as the family waited for the happy couple to emerge from the service.

Chris said: “It’s brilliant.

“I came down to do this because Steve and Jaquie wanted to be on the good morning Chris club we run on the Breakfast Show everyday.”

The Radio 2 club – with its infamous horn honked by Chris – is for people who have to get up early in the morning to do something different in the day.

Listeners text in to say why they should be in the club and Chris admits them with a blast from his horn.

Chris added: “They asked to be in the club because they were going down to Wiltshire for a fiancee practice.

“It was such a lovely text and they explained that they were getting married.

“It was as simple as that.

“As they were getting married in Windsor and I live nearby, I told them I would pick them up in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang as a treat.

“I think it’s lovely, delightful. They’re great.”

Mr Elliott, from Calne in Wiltshire, said: “It is such a lovely gesture. It was just through the radio, but Chris just said ‘It’s alright I’ll drive you from the wedding. It’s amazing.”

The groom’s mother Carol Elliott, 73, said: “This is wonderful. They have been over the moon thinking about it, but never thought it would happen.

“I am so happy for them. It’s really made their day.”

Lucy Parkin, the Sir Christopher Wren marketing executive, said: “We were thrilled to hear that Chris Evans had offered to make Jaquie and Stephen’s wedding day extra special after they contacted him through his radio show, and it was a lovely touch to their wedding to have him drive them in his replica of the famous car from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The one-of-a-kind car looked fabulous parked outside our grand entrance on the cobbled streets by Eton Bridge.”

The car is a replica of the movie favourite flying car from the film of the same name which Chris bought some years ago, but was made by the same people.

The 1968 film starring Dick Van Dyke, was based on the book James Bond creator Ian Fleming who studied at Eton College.

Chris and his team are running the Windsor Half Marathon in Windsor Great Park for Children in Need on Sunday, September 24.
