Station spokesman says the presenter isn't being replaced

Chris Moyles won’t be leaving Radio 1 at the end of the year.

It was claimed BBC producers wanted to replace the 35-year-old in a major reshuffle.

But a spokesman has rubbished the reports.

‘[We have] no plans to take Chris off the breakfast show,’ reads a statement.

‘He has a hugely successful show with over seven million listeners, and he added more listeners in the last Rajar figures.’

Chris would become the station’s longest-serving breakfast host if he stayed in the job until September.

Tony Blackburn holds the record of five years and nine months.
