Chris Moyles has announced that he'll be celebrating the end of his breakfast show by embarking on a UK tour.
The DJ is about to hang up his headphones on the Radio 1 breakfast show with Nick Grimshaw taking on the high-profile job.
In November, he'll begin an 80-minute touring music and comedy show, Chris Moyles Live, incorporating audience participation and a live band.
"This is my first chance to get out and see the fans since I left the radio show," said the DJ, who is first set to play King Herod in a tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar.
"It will be a night of singing and laughing and messing about. If you share my same sense of humour and love for bad karaoke, then this is the show for you."
Chris and his friends will perform songs during the show, which was announced as Ant and Dec said they wanted the DJ to join them in the next instalment of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! later this year.
The presenters told the Daily Star they thought Chris would cope well in the jungle, saying: "He'd be really funny, he'd probably win.
"And he's lost so much weight, even the lack of food wouldn't bother him."
