DJ kept colleagues in the dark about Olympic role

Chris Moyles has revealed that most of his colleagues had no idea that he was going to be an Olympic torch bearer.

The DJ left his breakfast show to carry the torch 300 metres up Penglais Hill in Aberystwyth.

I had not even told them I was doing it, I sneaked out.

They had no idea. I've got to run back and do the rest of the show now!
