The Radio X DJ worked extremely hard to lose the weight, telling TV star Ross Kemp in 2020 that he often trains up to five days a week, as well as following an intermittent fasting diet. Of his strict regime, he said: "I don't have the metabolism of an 18-year-old girl or boy, I just don't.”

On tracking his progress, Chris revealed: "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.”

His strict monitoring could be in part down to his body dysmorphia, which he also spoke to Ross about.

"I'm fascinated by body dysmorphia because I really have an issue with body dysmorphia, which I think most people do," he said.

The NHS defines body dysmorphia as a mental health condition where a person spends a lot of time worrying about 'flaws' in their appearance. These flaws are often unnoticeable to others.

Did Chris Moyles have weight loss surgery?

Despite his dedication to his health and fitness routine, Chris was plagued by rumours that he used weight loss supplements, or underwent weight loss surgery.

In 2017, the presenter took to social media to quash rumours, explaining: "I have never even heard of this product, let alone used it. 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 lager intake. Started eating better food... Trained regularly. That's it. I just wanted you to know I didn't use any supplements."

On his decision to enter the jungle, Chris said: "In the past, I always said no to offers to take part. But this year, I didn't say no immediately, and I ended up going to a meeting. Now I don't know why I said yes. But I am a huge fan of the show and I know what I am letting myself in for! My friends who have done it before have told me I will have a great time."
