Yeah, I know most of us don't listen to Radio 1, but it's worth mentioning regardless as it means - brace yourselves - he's probably going to be on telly a lot more.

BBC Radio 1's longest serving breakfast radio host, Chris Moyles (38. I know. Not even 40), has quit his radio show during an on-air announcement. It only took him eight years of red-eyed dawn crackers (sometimes without pay) for him to call it a day. This is quite the achievement speaking as someone who's in a relationship with someone else who used to be a breakfast radio DJ. And he cracked in half that time. Then again, he wasn't signing contracts for £1,000,000.

Speaking on air this morning, Moyles said: "I wanted to tell you myself. I didn't want you to see it in the newspapers or on Twitter. A couple more months of us. Then it's someone else's turn." 

The Sun reports that Moyles signed a new contract at the BBC last summer, keeping him at Radio 1 until 2014. Aaaah, so he might not be on telly as much until 2014. That's something at least.

His replacement is due to be announced later today. My money's on Fearne Cotton. "GIIINSSTAAAHHHS!"

UPDATED: Nick Grimshaw off T4 is replacing Moyles. Great.
