Chris is settling into life in the jungle, and talked about why he decided to shed the pounds.

Speaking to his fellow I’m A Celebrity campmates, he first talked about his past food shame, and admitted: “I once bought a microwavable kebab.”

Owen then said: “Come on, you’re better than that!” 

To which Chris candidly replied: “From what I remember it tasted alright. But back then I was eating all sorts of crap.” 

He added: “I didn’t necessarily eat a lot but what I did eat was all bad. All bad.”

Asked by Charlene what turned things around, he said: “A mixture of things. I climbed Kili [Mount Kilimanjaro].

“I was 17.5stone at Christmas and we were climbing in March. I got down to 16 [before we went].

“Climbed Kili and lost a stone in a week. I sat at 15 [stone] for ages and I had a trainer, and one day I just went, ‘It’s a waste of time this training, I’m not losing any weight’ and he just barked at me, ‘That’s because your diet’s s***!’

“So we had a big chat… I fell down to 12 stone really quickly. 10 years ago [that was].” 

But fans poked fun at this revelation, with one saying: “chris moyles when he hasn’t mentioned his weight loss in 5 minutes.”

While this one tweeted: “Good on Chris for the weight loss, but is this all were going to hear from him?”

Another said: “Did you know Chris Moyles use to be fat? I don’t think he’s mentioned it yet.”

The Radio X presenter was motivated to shed the pounds after admitting he feared he’d die if he kept up his unhealthy lifestyle.

“I’m getting older. If I don’t keep fit I will be dead by the time I am 50,” he said.

Chris has previously admitted working early morning shifts on Radio 1‘s Breakfast Show for years meant his lifestyle became unhealthy.

It was widely reported he used to eat mostly junk food and snacks while working.

He would reportedly indulge in multiple takeaways and would rarely exercise, but having left the show in 2012 – and taken a break from the early mornings for a while – it motivated him to tackle the weight once and for all.

Sure enough, he debuted his slimmed-down figure in 2015 and hasn’t looked back since.


The star previously explained that he shed the pounds simply by changing his diet and fitness regime.

After spotting an article claiming he’d been eating around 2,000 calories a day before his weight loss, Chris took to Facebook in 2017 and claimed it was much more.

“Have you missed a zero off that? If I was consuming only 2000 calories a day, I could’ve lost weight! The NHS website says a man needs around 2,500 calories a day to maintain his weight,” he wrote.

He went on to claim that while he’s switched to healthier foods, he still can’t stand oatmeal – and added: “I eat eggs as they are. Chicken with skin on only started eating fish recently and have turkey at Christmas.”

Doing regular cardio and intense workouts to build muscle mass has also given him a new lease on life.

Meanwhile, he also cut out a major culprit – bread – and reduced the amount of lager he was drinking, which he revealed to fans after spotting false rumours that he’d used weight loss supplements.

“I have never even heard of this product, let alone used it,” he said on Facebook.

“I don’t want people reading this and thinking that’s how I lost weight. So here, from my tiny mouth, is the truth.

“I stopped buying bread. Dramatically cut my larger intake. Started eating better food… Trained regularly. That’s it.

“I just wanted you to know I didn’t use any supplements and I still… hate oatmeal.”
