Chris Moyles said goodbye to listeners on the Radio 1 breakfast show this morning.

The DJ, who has hosted the show for more than eight years, said he was “proud” and that his final programme felt like “some weird victory” after “all the flak we’ve taken”.

Moyles told listeners: “We just got through all of it and here we all are celebrating us and I’m really proud.”

He added: “Thank you to everyone who has listened and supported us.”

The goodbye came after a celebrity-filled send-off yesterday by pals including Ant and Dec, who hosted a This Is Your Life-style farewell to the DJ. The duo turned up for Moyles’s penultimate show, which was broadcast in front of a live audience of more than 200 fans.

Other guests included James Corden, Gary Barlow and Billie Piper.

Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw will take over the breakfast show.
