More money for Moyles

BBC Radio 1 breakfast presenter Chris Moyles is to be a guest presenter on Channel 4's Friday Night Project – and reports say he'll be getting £50,000 for one night's work. He'll join regular hosts Justin Lee Collins and Alan Carr on the programme. Moyles has previously hosted his own TV shows, "Live with…" on Five and "The Chris Moyles Show" on UK Play in the early days of digital satellite.

[link=]The Sun[/link] today reports that Moyles' £50k will be £20,000 more than the other guest hosts get. An insider told the paper, "Moyles is a big draw, everyone loves him – and we were prepared to pay whatever it took. Our guest stars normally get £30,000 but Moyles is worth more."

The newspaper reported last year that he earns around £630,000 a year for his Radio 1 show – that was before his latest increases in listening figures.

The 32-year-old was a hit on last year's X Factor: Battle of the Stars and has apparently been in talks about hosting his own television show. The insider that The Sun spoke to added: "This is likely to be a good springboard for TV projects for Chris."
