Walt and Boo looked super cute in festive Christmas babygros as James held them while posing for the camera.

In September, Chris confirmed the twins’ arrival on the Radio 2 Breakfast show.

The statement, read out on air, said: “Ping and Pong arrived safe and well last night.

“Ping popped her head out at 22.10, Pong popped his head out 12 minutes later at 22 minutes past 10. Both healthy, both strong, happy and blessed, as was mum throughout.”

He added: “Infinite thanks to the amazing team at Frimley Park Hospital, amazing people, amazing professionals, helping dreams come true. Thank you.”

A day later, the couple revealed their babies’ names.

Meanwhile, during James’ show, Chris opens up about leaving his Radio 2 Breakfast show after bagging a role at Virgin Radio, which will launch in January 2019.

Chris tells James: “The BBC is a marvellous and wonderful place and I thank them for everything.

“I have no complaints whatsoever. I had an amazing time there – to take over Terry’s [Wogan] show was such an honour and such a treat.

“I survived it and lived to tell the tale. I can see bright, bright sunshine, I can see blue, blue skies and I can’t wait to get to Virgin Radio.”

Earlier this week, Chris revealed he said “yes” to appearing on Strictly Come Dancing next year.

During an appearance on The One Show on Wednesday, host Alex Jones said: “If rumours are to be believed, Chris Evans, you probably won’t have time to do panto next year.

“Can you deny or confirm that you will be on Strictly?”

Chris replied: “Well, I have said yes, I have said yes.” He then joked he only wants to take part in the show so his wife, Natasha Shishmanian, can get tickets.

“So you and my wife can go and have a great time and I will be terrified backstage.”

Chris, who will host his final show for Radio 2 on December 24, said he met the commissioning editor of Strictly for a cup of tea and was warned, “it’s not as easy as maybe you imagine it will be”.

He added: “I think what’s funny about it, everyone puts it off and tries and keep it a secret. No, announce now, we’re doing it now.”
