What the stars of Radio 1's Chris Moyles show are doing now – from marrying another host to running the whole station

What the stars of Radio 1's Chris Moyles show are doing now – from marrying another host to running the whole station

August 2, 2020

UNTIL he stepped down from Radio 1 in 2012, Chris Moyles ruled the airwaves on the station's breakfast show.

However, he wasn't alone – with a gang that also comprised producers Aled and Pippa, newsreaders Dom and Tina, and of course his on-air sidekick 'Comedy Dave' Vitty.

While some of the gang followed him when he made the move to indie music station Radio X, others struck out on their own.

And, as we prove below, some of them have recently had some big news in their careers and personal lives. Just how many of this lot do you remember?

Chris Moyles


Radio star Chris has recently been in the headlines no end for his remarkable 5st weight loss since quitting Radio 1, where he was the station's self-proclaimed "saviour".

Appropriately given the nickname, the 46-year-old presenter appeared in Jesus Christ Superstar before surprising everyone by taking the breakfast show at Radio X.

The station, owned by a company run by his former flatmate Ashley Tabor, was some way down the listenership table to the BBC giant, but has found a wider audience since he arrived.

'Comedy Dave' Vitty


Dave and Chris have long been rumoured to have fallen out, with the pair said to have held separate leaving parties when they left Radio 1.

The beef is thought to be about Chris' closeness to Dave ex-wife Jayne Sharp. And of course Dave didn't join him on the new station.

However, he's since moved on to commercial radio too, after 16 years at Radio 1, hosting a show alongside Gemma Arterton on Hits Radio in Manchester and helps to make videos and podcasts for a company in London.

Aled Haydn Jones

Radio 1 listeners were first introduced to Aled as the "tea boy" even though he quickly emerged as the mastermind of the show behind the scenes. And now he's running the whole station.

Welsh Aled, 43, was appointed the controller of Radio 1 back in June, saying he was "honoured" to get the job.

Many listeners joked that the news made them feel ancient, with one posting: "If you used to listen to Chris Moyles and are of a certain age this will make you feel old."

Pippa Taylor

Producer Pippa was another former Radio 1'er who came over to Radio X with Chris, remaining a familiar voice to listeners to both his old and new shows.

Last month she revealed she was getting married after her boyfriend Toby Tarrant – son of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? original host Chris – got down on one knee.

She met the 28-year-old at Radio X, where he hosts the show directly after hers and Chris's.

Tina Daheley


Newsreader Tina is still reporting the headlines in the morning, but on Zoe Ball's show over on the more grown-up BBC Radio 2.

The 41-year-old has also hosted the BBC's Six and Ten O'Clock News bulletins, fronted Breakfast and for a time was co-host of Crimewatch alongside Jeremy Vine.

Dominic Byrne

Newsman Dom, 47, read bulletins on Chris's Radio 1 show, before joining Chris over on Radio X.

Matt Fincham

Producer Matt moved over to work with Nick Grimshaw after his time on Chris's breakfast show.

He put together the programme that would take over Chris's breakfast slot and now runs the whole music operation at Radio 1.
