Chris Moyles has revealed he lost 1.5 stone in weight during his three weeks in the Australian jungle while appearing on I’m A Celebrity Get Me out of Here!.
The radio presenter, 48, told in an interview on his Radio X breakfast show on Friday that it’s ‘the lowest weight he’s been since school’.
Chris previously hit headlines when he lost six stone over the course of more than five years by changing his unhealthy lifestyle.
Speaking of his new figure he said: ‘You get weighed right at the beginning and then the first thing you do when you come out and make sure you haven’t lost the plot. So yeah I lost weight – I’ve lost a stone and a half.
‘I don’t know if you can see if I take my T-shirt off but look it’s flat from my boobs all the way down. It’s the lowest weight I’ve been since school!’
Chris became the sixth star to be voted off I’m A Celebrity during Thursday’s episode after admitting he was ‘ready’ to leave.
The radio DJ was named in the bottom two of the public vote by show hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly with comedian Seann Walsh.
Taking a seat for his exit interview, Chris said: ‘I just said this morning in the Bush Telegraph, “I’ve got this now, I’d really like to stay,” before adding: ‘I’m gutted Matt Hancock is more popular than me!’
Former Health Secretary Matt made the controversial decision to appear on the jungle survival series this year.
Chris said he felt like a ‘competition winner’ going into camp, adding: ‘I never got over the surrealness of it all. I’d often be the last one go to bed and I’d go to the dunny and I’d look back and I’d go, “Wow!'”‘
He added: ‘It’s such a privilege to be able to do it… To be a part of this is a real honour. I know I won’t appreciate it until I’m out.’
The broadcaster struggled to successfully compete in the trials, at one point only managing to win one star for camp, meaning the group had one meal to share between them at a point when there was 11 people residing in camp.
He explained: ‘I’m an anxious scared man who is really comfortable in a radio studio. I’m not cut out for this life!’
The media personality recently admitted he struggles with maintaining his new slimline physique after a whopping six stone weight loss.
Speaking to Ross Kemp on his podcast The Kempcast, Chris confessed he still suffers from body dysmorphia, despite having shrunk from 18 stone to 12 stone.
The comedian detailed his strict regimen of weighing himself daily and barely eating all day Monday-Friday, before enjoying himself at the weekends.
He said: ‘Before lockdown, Monday, Wednesday, Friday I would do the show we would have a quick meeting… and then I’d get to the gym and I’d train 11-12 or 11-1, depending on how fat I was feeling. I’m feeling really fat at the moment!
‘I’m fascinated by body dysmorphia because I really have an issue with body dysmorphia, which I think most people do. I’ve lost six stone from my worst weight when I was 18 stone!
‘I know my body really well now, and I’m still learning. I don’t have the metabolism of an 18-year-old girl or boy, I just don’t.
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 that so I can learn about how my body works.
‘I will train Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and I will watch what I eat and I’ll eat very little. I do intermittent fasting and I’ll eat at 6:30PM or 7PM and I’ll be fine. I need to do that from the weekends that I have.’
Having previously stated he thought he’d ‘die at 50’ if he didn’t overhaul his diet, Chris has managed to lose weight by ditching bread and booze, taking part in five-day detoxes and embarking on a strict fitness regime.
Chris has attributed his former unhealthy lifestyle to working early morning shifts for Radio 1’s Breakfast Show, as it meant he would often eat junk food and snacks while working.
Calling his time on the show his ‘fat breakfast DJ stage’, the radio personality was previously said to rarely exercise and would often eat multiple takeaways a day.
Now working for Radio X, the star has been able to focus on having better eating habits and exercising, and he now credits his weight loss to running and ditching junk food.
According to GoodToKnow, before his weight loss mission Chris ate about 2,000 calories per day of unhealthy food, but the DJ has told fans he believed the number was much higher.
Taking to his Facebook page at the time, Chris refuted: ‘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. I eat eggs as they are. Chicken with skin on, only started eating fish recently and have turkey at Christmas.’
He now eats the same amount of calories, but has swapped greasy pizza and fatty ice cream for fresh fruit and vegetables, along with grains like quinoa and oatmeal.
