Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles may have the biggest mouth on radio but his drastic weight-loss means he is too small for his planned stage role.

Moyles’ part in Jesus Christ Superstar at the O2 in London has been undermined by his super-slimming regime.

The lead role in the production is set to go to the winner of new ITV talent show ‘Superstar.’

But Moyles’ trimmed-down diet means he is seriously underweight – and may have to step into a fat-suit in order to fill the role.

Superstar Supremo Andrew Lloyd Webber said: “The thing is we signed Chris and now he’s gone and lost all that weight. I think we are going to have to get him a fat suit.

“Herod was a big man. So it looks like it will be a fat suit.”

Other famous faces set to appear in the show include former Spice Girl Mel C as Mary Magdalene and Tim Minchin, who plays Judas.
