Im A Celebs Chris Moyles reveals why he signed up to hit ITV jungle show

Chris Moyles has revealed the real reason why he has signed up to I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! 2022.

The radio presenter, 48, is part of the star-studded line-up and joins the likes of Matt Hancock, Boy George and Mike Tindall in the iconic jungle.

Opening up on the real reason he has signed up for the show, Chris revealed it is to boost the number of listeners on his Radio X show.

He said: "It’s never been on my bucket list to do this show, it never was and still now I find it weird that I’m doing it. Vernon [Kay] said, ‘You are there and you just crack on with it.’

"Why did I sign up? The main reason I’m doing it – hands up, I’ll be perfectly honest, is to get more people to listen to my radio show, which is what I do everyday and it’s what I love to do and have been doing for seven years.

"But there are still people I see in restaurants or bars and they go: 'I used to love your show, what are you doing these days?' And I say I’m still doing a radio show – you don’t even have to tune a dial anymore, you just need to speak out loud and tell your device what you’re listening to.

"The radio show is the main reason why I’m doing it – trying to get more people to listen and convince a few more people that maybe didn’t like me back in the day that I might be more of their cup of tea these days."


Chris also revealed that he got some good "underwear advice" from former contestant Vernon Kay, who appeared on the Welsh version of the show in 2020.

The radio DJ said: "Vernon gave me some advice to do with underwear, I won’t share it, but he did call me and say I’ll have a great time and absolutely love it and he gave me tips on eating kangaroo testicles, he said 'just shove it in'."

Chris is also good friends with fellow DJ Tony Blackburn, who won the show in 2002 but he joked: "I didn’t ask Tony because he was the first winner so I love him a lot but he’s so old now he won’t remember what he had for breakfast so asking him what it was like to win that show he doesn’t even know he did that show."
