Chris Evans, 54, has always been very open about his health, whether it be cosmetic surgery or encouraging listeners to get themselves checked out to avoid missing cancerous lumps. On his Virgin Radio show, he left his co-star Rachel Horne in fits of giggles as he went thought the growing list of procedures he’s had over the past few years; ones that he insists stop him from “falling apart” as he gets older.
I have to stop myself from falling apart
First, he began with his teeth.
“It’s better to have straight teeth!” he exclaimed before revealing what he had had done to keep his pearly whites in line.
“Then I went through all he pain of having Invisalign done.”
Invisalign is a method of discreetly transforming teeth with removable braces which are virtually-invisible.
The aligners are transparent and custom made to gradually straighten the teeth without using any metal wires or brackets.
As part of the treatment and as with most braces, patients have to wear a retainer at night but Chris explained he didn’t get on too well with his as he struggled to remove it to eat.
“You lose a tonne of wright!” he joked.
“Best diet available! But I’m going to go back in for that.”
He then moved on to talk about his varicose veins, which he had lasered in 2019 after they began to become painful.
Chris told listeners at the time that he had undergone microwave ablation, which is a minimal invasive treatment as his veins were “too severe” for a non-invasive method.
The keen marathon runner who was looking forward to the Tokyo 2020 Marathon, which unfortunately didn’t take place due to coronavirus, insisted he will now be able to run any race “quicker”, saying: “I guarantee that with my new legs!”
The former BBC host then listed his laser eye surgery which he underwent in September 2013.
Taking to Twitter at the time, he recommended it to his fans, writing: “Thousands of replies re laser treatment.

“Trust me – there is no one more squeamish than I. Five mins of mild discomfort for years of HD!!!”
Present day Chris then went on to talk about his hair pills, which he touches on quite regularly on the show and the removal of his kidney stones, which saw him absent from the show for two weeks while he recovered from surgery.
The dad-of-five also discussed his latest procedure, and one that he has urged listeners to do in the past for their own benefit.
“I’ve had my latest colonoscopy and endoscopy,” he told Rachel and Vassos who were listening intently.
The methods examine various portions of the digestive tract and can be used tosspot any irregularities or issues.
A colonoscopy inspect the large intestine (colon and rectum) while upper endoscopies observe the oesophagus, stomach and the first part of the small intestine.
“This is what you have to do,” he noted before turning his attention to his co-stars.
“You two have this to come! It’s primarily maintenance, that’s why I haven’t got time for anything else.”
Chris then added: “I’ve got a million children, so I have to stop myself from falling apart,” before giggling: “Anyway, there are my issues,” as the team began to laugh.
The Chris Evans Breakfast Show airs weekdays at 6:30am on Virgin Radio.
