Moyles no heavyweight as Herod
Chris Moyles could have to wear a fat suit for his role as King Herod
Chris Moyles might have to wear a fat suit in the touring production of Jesus Christ Superstar, according to reports, because he's shed so much weight.
The Radio 1 DJ has been cast as King Herod in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, which will follow an ITV1 show, Superstar, to cast the role of Jesus.
Musical impresario Andrew told The Sun: "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."
Amanda Holden, who is hosting Superstar, added: "Chris has lost shedloads of weight. If they stick him in a fat suit then he'll lose loads more weight because he'll be sweating like mad in one of those."
The production will also star Melanie C as Mary Magdalene and Tim Minchin as Judas.
Dawn French and Jason Donovan will join Andrew on the judging panel of the ITV1 show.
