“I just said this morning in the Bush Telegraph, ‘I’ve got this now, I’d really like to stay,'” said Chris, who took a seat for his exit interview, before adding, “I’m screwed, Matt Hancock is way more popular than me!”

Chris said he felt like a “contest winner” going to camp, adding, “I never really got over the surrealism of it all. I’m often the last to go to bed and I’ll go to the low and I’ll look back and I’ll go, ‘Wow!'”
He added, “It’s such an honor to be able to do this… to be a part of this is a real honor.” I know I won’t appreciate it until I get out.
The broadcaster struggled to successfully compete in the trials, and at one point only managed to win one camp star, meaning the group had one meal to share among themselves at a time when 11 people were staying at camp.
“I’m an anxious, scared guy,” he explained, “I feel really comfortable in a radio studio.” I do not interrupt this life! “
Before: Having previously stated that he believes he’ll “die at 50” if he doesn’t overhaul his diet, Chris has managed to lose weight by giving up bread and wine, participating in a five-day detox and embarking on a fitness regime strict
The media personality recently admitted that he struggles with maintaining his new, skinny physique after a massive six stone weight loss.
Speaking to Ross Kemp on his podcast The Kempcast, Chris admitted that he still struggles with 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 from Monday to Friday, before enjoying himself on the weekends.
He said: ‘Before closing, Monday, Wednesday, Friday I’d do the show we’d have a speed meeting… and then I’d get to the gym and I’d train 11-12 or 11-1, depending on how fat I was. I really feel fat right now!

“I am intrigued with body dysmorphia because I actually have a problem with body dysmorphia, which I think most people do. I lost six stone from my worst weight when I was 18 stone!
I know my body very 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 have it.
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 it so I can see how the body works.”
I will train Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and I will watch what I eat and I will eat a little. I fast intermittently and will eat at 6:30pm or 7pm and I will be fine. I need to do this from my weekends.
Speaking of his new persona, he said, ‘I don’t know if you can tell if I take my shirt off but it looks like it’s flat from my breasts all the way. It’s the lowest weight since school! “
Having previously stated that he believes he’ll “die at 50” if he doesn’t overhaul his diet, Chris has managed to lose weight by giving up bread and wine, participating in a five-day detox, and embarking on a strict fitness regime.
Chris attributed his former unhealthy lifestyle to working early morning shifts for Radio 1’s breakfast programme, as it meant he often ate junk food and snacks while working.
His time on the show was dubbed ‘the fat breakfast DJ scene’, and it was previously said that he rarely worked out, mostly eating multiple fast food meals a day.
Now working at Radio X, the star has been able to focus on better eating habits and exercise, and he now attributes his weight loss to running and giving up junk food.
Candid: According to GoodToKnow, Chris has eaten 2,000 calories a day of unhealthy food before, but the DJ previously told fans he thinks the number is much higher (pictured in 2006)
According to GoodToKnow, prior to his weight loss stint, Chris ate around 2,000 calories a day of unhealthy food, but the DJ told fans he thought the number was much higher.
Taking to his Facebook page at the time, Chris denied: “Did I miss anything?” If I only consumed 2,000 calories a day, I would lose weight!
The NHS website says a man needs around 2,500 calories a day to maintain his weight. I eat eggs as is. Chicken with skin on, only started eating fish recently and have a turkey for Christmas.
He now eats the same amount of calories, but he’s replaced greasy pizza and greasy ice cream with fresh fruits and vegetables, along with grains like quinoa and oatmeal.
It’s over: When he took 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, “You’ve let Matt Hancock down more famous than me!” “
