Lorraine Kelly's concern for 'skinny' Chris Moyles after I'm A Celeb exit

I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! star Chris Moyles has revealed he is "absolutely devastated" and has sparked concerns due to his "skinny" appearance.

The Leeds-born radio DJ recently opened up about his weight loss journey and admitted he still suffers from body dysmorphia, despite having shrunk from 18 stone to 12 stone. After nearly three weeks in the jungle, the 48-year-old appears to have lost even more weight thanks to a very restrictive diet of just beans and rice.

Appearing on ITV's Lorraine this morning, November 25, the Scottish presenter seemed worried when she exclaimed: "You've got even skinnier." Chris brushed off her comment and instead made a joke in reference to the rumours that Britain's Got Talent judge David Walliams has quit.

Chris said: "I am absolutely devastated, devastated, Lorraine. Not to be out of the jungle, I thought I was in the running to be on Britain's Got Talent, replacing David Walliams but now you are telling me it's somebody else. This is gutting news."

Lorraine was quick to reassure him, saying: "It might be you, you never can tell, just wait until your phone starts going." Chris added: "I am available, Lorraine, I am available."

Chris, who was voted off I'm A Celebrity last night, revealed he has not eaten properly yet but has had a chance to shower, which "was heaven", and has been reunited with his girlfriend Tiffany Austin. Turning more serious, the presenter discussed how difficult he found the jungle experience.

He told Lorraine: "It was a lot harder than I thought it would be. And it turns out that I am not great with anxiety, stress and pressure.

"I am very good in my comfort zone and I have now realised why it's called a comfort zone. I also went in there with a fear of heights and came out with a fear of confined spaces and water."

He added: "It's been a rollercoaster but no regrets at all. It' a very bizarre but brilliant experience, I am pleased I did it."

While Chris appeared ready to leave at the beginning of last night's episode, he seemed shocked to have been voted off before former health secretary Matt Hancock. Leaving the camp, he said: "I’m gutted Matt is more popular than me, what’s going on."

When asked about his plans for the day, Chris said he was about to head out for dinner. Lorraine said: "Good, eat lots. Lots, and lots and lots."
