Television and radio favourite Chris Evans is set to make a flying visit to Doncaster later this week.

The host announced to listeners on his Radio 2 show this morning that he will be travelling by train to the town on Friday to catch a flight to the Isle of Man from Robin Hood Airport.

Flights to the island have recently been introduced out of Doncaster and the star is heading to the island in preparation for his annual Carfest events, which combine music and motoring and festival fun.

But his travel plans were met with criticism on Twitter, with Paul Williams tweeting: “Why Doncaster and not heathrow London City etc, it’s longer there than the flight will be.”
