I’m A Celebrity’s Nick Knowles reaches no. 1 on iTunes after online campaign

Nick Knowles has reached no.1 on iTunes after a campaign kickstarted by radio DJ Chris Moyles.

The DIY SOS presenter spoke about his little-known music career during I’m A Celebrity last night.

This prompted Chris to call on listeners of his Radio X show to get one of his songs back in the charts.

Currently Nick’s cover of Make You Feel My Love, a track from his 2017 album Every Kind of People, is charting.

How long it will last, however, remains to be seen.

Speaking on air, Chris said: "Now, should we just pick our favourite song off the album, and just get everybody to go on iTunes and buy it off the album, buy that one track off the album. But here’s what we do, we just say, look – this is not a Chris Moyles Show campaign, this is just a campaign to get Nick Knowles into the top 40.

"So it’s not just us, everyone can take part. Let’s see if we can get Nick Knowles into the chart… Someone’s texted in saying ‘imagine he gets back from the jungle and he’s got a top 10 single in the chart. Oh he’d be delighted, wouldn’t he?"

Last night, viewers were left in hysterics after Nick spoke about his rooftop ‘jam’ with Biffy Clyro in Soho.

Of course, fans of the ITV show promptly flocked to Twitter to joke about his remarks.

One tweeted: "I f***ing love the idea of Nick Knowles playing with @BiffyClyro on the roof of a bar in Soho #ImACeleb #BiffyClyroNotEmbarrassedTheyJammedWithNickKnowles."
