A valuable Damien Hirst print belonging to Chris Evans has been accidentally delivered to a charity shop in Surrey.

The Radio 2 presenter told listeners his driver dropped the "dot picture" and other items off while he was getting ready to move house.

It was supposed to go to Mr Evans' and golfer wife Natasha Shishmanian's new home.

Evans, 42, said on his show: "I just found out today. It's somewhere in a charity shop in Godalming."

Telling listeners he was in a caravan waiting to go into his new home, Evans said: "I've been moving house recently. Some of the stuff goes in boxes to stay and some to go. We took all the pictures down.

"In one of the boxes to go was a Damien Hirst print signed by Damien Hirst."

His driver told listeners on the presenter's BBC radio progamme that he had visited charity shops in Godalming and Cranleigh but did not know which one it had been left in.

He added: I'm not a Damien Hirst fan. I know he does things that involve stuffing sheep. I can go back there to see if it's around... but now you've gone on air they'll be inundated."
