No BBC return planned for Chris Moyles?

Bosses at BBC Radio 1, Radio 2 and 5 live have been unable to find a suitable slot for Chris Moyles, according to a report.

chrismoylesA “source” told the Mirror that his BBC ­comeback is now “highly unlikely”.

They added: “He wasn’t very keen on their offer of a late-night slot and stalled talks for a long time, so bosses gave it to another pair of DJs in January.

“Some of the other ­suggestions were launching new projects on Radio 2 or on Radio 5 Live, but executives weren’t convinced he was right for their audiences.

“It looks like if there is any chance of a radio comeback, it won’t be on the BBC.”

The report also suggests Chris is no longer being paid by the BBC, even though his £1m contract took him to the beginning of 2014.

Chris has been keeping a low radio profile since his emotional exit from BBC Radio 1 last September, apart from a national tour of his breakfast show format which featured some of his morning team.

He’s also scheduled to go back on tour as King Herod in Jesus Christ Superstar this October.

He occasionally tweets to his three million followers about being unemployed and having no money, and just this week announced his has become an uncle.
