I’M A Celebrity star Chris Moyles has revealed his worst fear in a secret message after flying out to Australia.
The 48-year-old recorded a secret message for his listeners before he headed to the Australia jungle to take part in the hit reality show.
Capturing the “very emotional” moment he shared that he’d be flying off to the camp to try his hand at jungle life, he told his team: “I am genuinely, genuinely petrified.”
When asked by Dominic Byrne, Pippa Taylor and James Robinson what exactly he was scared of, the radio presenter candidly admitted his fear of heights.
“Your entry in from past shows is either jump out of a helicopter or do the plank on the high building which wobbles in the wind, and that absolutely petrifies me.

“I am petrified. Petrified! […] I’m terrified and I’m very emotional by your reaction because now it feels real.”
I'm a Celebrity returns this week and according to reports, this year's lineup has a staggering combined net worth of over £76million so far – one of the richest I'm a Celebrity bunches in the ITV show's long history.
Royal rugby player Mike Tindall, 44, and radio DJ Chris Moyles, 48, complete the top three, with all having huge property investments alongside their earnings.
Radio X’s Moyles, living in a £2million mansion in posh Highgate, North London, is worth around £8million.
The DJ started his career in broadcasting on his local hospital radio.
Since 2015 he has hosted The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X, after quitting Radio 1 back in 2012.
Chris is also a talented singer, and during his break from radio he went on tour with the Andrew Lloyd Webber's Jesus Christ Superstar musical.
Staring his career at Capital, it was only when Chris joined Radio 1 in 1997 that he became a household name.
