What has Chris Moyles said about being on I’m a Celeb?

Moyles finished sixth on I’m a Celeb, reflecting to presenters Ant and Dec he described the experience as feeling “like a bizarre dream.” When asked how he found being in the jungle alongside former health secretary Matt Hancock, Moyles added: “I really struggled with it. I’ve slagged him a bit.” Adding jokingly: “I’m gutted that Matt Hancock is more popular than me.”

What did he say about Matt Hancock?

Moyles went into more detail about his feelings regarding the former health secretary during an interview on Radio X on Friday 25 November.

Reported by Manchester Evening News Moyles said: “I was venting quite a bit at first when he came in, because, well, I’ll just say it: He should be at work because he’s an MP. He’s paid to look after people and their interests and hopefully make their lives better, and I don’t know how he does that by going on the jungle show. There was a moment when we got into a conversation about him and it got quite tense – which I accidentally started by going, “So when’s your book out?” and he went “Next month”. I didn’t know he had a book.”

Moyles added: “And the reason I got annoyed with him was because Seann, who did something in his personal life that got thrown in all of the newspapers and didn’t impact my life whatsoever has had a really, really hard time career-wise, mental-health-wise.”

“He was very open about it and has come on the show to basically say, ‘I’m really not a bad guy, can I start again?’. Which is really honest and takes a lot of balls to do that. And Matt Hancock kind of dived around a few questions I thought, and then said, ‘I guess all I’m asking for is forgiveness’. At which point I had to walk out of camp and just get away because I personally found that quite fake. And that really wound me up.”

The radio DJ added: “I had to separate Matt Hancock from Matt who was in camp, who was doing his best at trials to try and win us food.”

Why did Chris Moyles quit BBC Radio 1?

Moyles previously presented BBC Radio 1’s breakfast show from 2004 to 2012. He announced he would be leaving live on air, telling listeners: “I wanted to tell you myself. I didn’t want you to see it in the newspapers or on Twitter. A couple more months of us. Then it’s someone else’s turn. Thank you for listening.”

In 2020, Moyles spoke out about his time on BBC Radio 1, reported by The Sun, he called the radio station a “conveyor belt”. Adding: “at some time you will fall off it, because of age or not being relevant anymore.”

The former DJ said: “The story goes, I was too old for the show. I was 38 when they took us off. They recently hired some DJs who were that age. The show is yours for a while - it is like renting a house for a bit.”
