Chris Moyles has revealed he lost 1.5 stone during his three weeks in the Australian jungle while performing on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! occurred.
The 48-year-old radio host said in an interview on his Radio X breakfast show on Friday that it’s “the lowest weight he’s had since school”.
Chris previously made headlines when he lost 14 pounds over the course of more than five years by changing his unhealthy lifestyle.
Of his new character, he said: “You get weighed right at the start and then the first thing you do when you come out and make sure you haven’t lost track. So yeah, I’ve lost weight – I’ve lost a pound and a half.
“I don’t know if you can see when I take off my t-shirt, but see it’s flat from my breasts all the way down. That’s the lowest weight I’ve had since school!’
Chris became the sixth star to be voted out of Thursday’s episode of I’m A Celebrity after admitting he was “ready” to go.
The radio DJ was named by show hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, with comedian Seann Walsh in the final two of the public vote.
Chris took his seat for his exit interview and said: “I said on the Bush Telegraph this morning, ‘I’ve got this now, I’d really like to stay,’ before adding, ‘I’m disappointed that Matt Hancock is more popular than me !’
Former Health Secretary Matt made the controversial decision to appear in the jungle survival series this year.
Chris said he felt like a “competition winner” going into camp, adding, “I never got over the surreality of it all. I was often the last to go to bed, and I’d go to the dunny, and I’d look back and be like, ‘Wow!'”
He added: “It’s such a privilege to be able to do this… It’s a real honor to be a part of it. I know I won’t appreciate until I’m out.’
The channel struggled to successfully complete the trials and at one point only managed to win one star for the camp, meaning the group had to share a meal at a time when there were 11 people living at the camp.
He explained, “I’m an anxious man who’s very comfortable in a radio studio. I wasn’t made for this life!’

He said: “Before lockdown I would do the show Monday, Wednesday, Friday, we would meet up quickly… and then I would go to the gym and work out 11-12 or 11-1 depending on how fat I felt. I feel really fat right now!
“I’m fascinated by body dysmorphia because I really have a problem with body dysmorphia, which I think most people have. I lost six pounds from my worst weight when I was 18 pounds!
“I know my body very well now and I’m still learning. I don’t have the metabolism of an 18 year old girl or boy, just not.
He continued, “I will, and people don’t believe me, but I weigh myself six days a week, and I know you shouldn’t, and I know it’s not for everyone, but I do.” , so I can learn how my body works.
“I will train Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and I will watch what I eat and I will eat very little. I do intermittent fasting and eat at 6:30 or 7:00 p.m. and I’m fine. I have to do that on the weekends I have.’
