Chris Moyles reveals he celebrated when figures plummeted after Nick Grimshaw took over his Radio 1 show

CHRIS Moyles has taken a dig at his old BBC bosses over the way he left the Radio 1 Breakfast show.

The self-proclaimed “Saviour of Radio 1” confirmed he was going in 2012 after eight years, with Nick Grimshaw taking over.

He said: “I was a bit miffed that the story that went out was that I was too old and I had got fired. I knew I wasn’t going to be doing that show for ever. I thought they handled it really badly.”

He added: “When that show failed and the listening figures fell, I was like, ‘Not that fing easy, is it boys.’

“Not aimed at Nick but at Radio 1 in general. The show lost a million-and-a-half almost overnight.

“They didn’t get them back.”

Chris also told The Kempcast podcast: “They had an advert for Nick’s show which went, ‘Now with added music’, which was clearly a p**s-take about how much we would talk on the show.

“I was like, ‘OK, the most successful Breakfast Show you’ve ever had, with the most listeners you’ve had in over a decade, that’s a bit of f you to us and eight million listeners. OK, f* you back’.”

Chris, who now hosts the Radio X breakfast show, said he had no disagreement with Nick and felt it was just the BBC who wronged him.

It’s not hard to see why he feels that way.
