Sources claim the star is not returning to the BBC despite him not being sacked from the broadcaster
Chris Moyles’s BBC radio comeback has been axed after talks about where to put him failed, a source claimed.
Bosses insisted the loudmouth DJ, 39, was not being sacked when he left his breakfast slot in September.
But executives at Radio 1, 2, and 5 Live are said to have gone cold on his return.
A source said his BBC comeback is now “highly unlikely”.
They added: “He wasn’t very keen on their offer of a late-night slot and stalled talks for a long time, so bosses gave it to another pair of DJs in January.
“Some of the other suggestions were launching new projects on Radio 2 or on Radio 5 Live, but executives weren’t convinced he was right for their audiences.
“It looks like if there is any chance of a radio comeback, it won’t be on the BBC.”
Chris’s £1million deal had been due to continue until the end of this year, but it is understood he is no longer being paid by the Beeb.
