Chris Moyles soaked after being hit on head by pint at Courteeners gig in Leeds – watch

Show was part of Radio X's Road Trip tour

Chris Moyles was hit on the head by a pint at a Radio X gig in Leeds earlier this week.

Moyles returned to radio after three years in September, following his departure from BBC Radio 1 in 2012. Radio X is the revamped version of radio station XFM.

The radio DJ has been touring the UK as part of Radio X’s Road Trip recently, with The Courteeners headlining a gig at Leeds’ O2 Academy as part of the tour.

Warming up the crowd for the band, Moyles was hit on the head by a full plastic pint glass thrown by an audience member. Watch footage below.

“Fucking sign that person up for Leeds United,” Moyles said following the incident, before adding: “So we had a chat backstage and I said ‘Do you think the crowd might be fucking rowdy tonight?'”

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Radio X’s station name is under threat after its trademark bid was rejected.

Speaking to NME following Radio X’s launch, Moyles said: “[Radio X] know what they’re buying. I don’t have to play a number of songs a day, I don’t have to do this and that, which is great – it’s what I wanted. I’m tired of being told I didn’t play enough music [on Radio 1].”

Asked which acts will make up the core playlist on Radio X, Moyles continued: “I just want the songs to be big. Radio 1 had enough shows where it was about the music – our show was never about the music. And what happens then is people think you don’t like music, which is really frustrating, ’cos I do like music.”

Pushed to name his top five bands, he described himself as “a little bit eclectic” and added: “I love a bit of everything, so my iPod is embarrassingly diverse.” He named The Strypes, The Rolling Stones, Ed Sheeran, ELO and the soundtrack to The Book Of Mormon, which he has seen three times.
