Sources inform me today that The One Show presenter Adrian Chiles is absolutely gutted that the Friday edition of the show is to be taken over by ex-ginger Chris Evans.
Although Chiles refuses to confirm or deny that his so-called beard protest earlier this year was aimed at the show's producers in an attempt to block the Evans move, this is what those close to him appear to believe.
It's thought that Chiles considers The One Show to be very much the love child of himself and co-presenter Christine Bleakley, and that he resents the fact that Evans - now more grey than ginger - has been brought in on the most popular day of the week for its ratings.
Chris Evans refused to speak to us yesterday, as did Christine Bleakley, but a night shift cleaner told me that he had once passed Adrian Chiles in a corridor while he was mopping up and overheard the presenter refer to Chris Evans as "That ginger bastard."
One of our team attempted to contact Adrian Chiles by phone but was told by a male voice that Chiles was a little wound up at the moment and had gone off for a few days fly-fishing in Poland.
More as we get it.
