His father is the king of breakfast radio and he lives in the shadow of Windsor Castle, but for now, 11-year-old Noah Evans's home is a den in his back garden. The big-hearted son of Virgin Radio star Chris is camping out for 28 days to raise funds to kit out front-line NHS workers. And his 54-year-old dad, who attracts an audience of millions worldwide to his breakfast show, could not be prouder. Posing for photos with Noah and his seven-year-old son Eli, Chris tells HELLO!: "I know his mum, brothers, sisters and I are biased, but he's an absolute superstar."
Noah snuggles down for a night in the open
Noah's plan was hatched after his mum Natasha told him about Scrubs, Glorious Scrubs, a network of volunteer seamstresses set up by Lynda Yong, a fashion shop owner from Ascot, to produce non-surgical scrubs for NHS staff. "Noah said to me three Saturdays ago: 'I'm off to build a den at the bottom of the garden.'" Chris tells us. "'Okay, son, want any help?' I offered. 'No thanks. I'll be fine,' he replied. And with that, off he trotted, not to be seen again until it was time for him to be called in for tea."

Noah has been keeping a daily blog and has already smashed his target of raising £2,000, with his parents agreeing to give him a further £1,000 should he reach his ultimate goal of staying out for 28 nights.
