Watch the DIY SOS star discover he owes Chris Moyles a drink in a letter from home from on I'm A Celeb.

This is the moment Nick Knowles finally discovered he reached number one on the iTunes charts.

The DIY SOS star was told the news on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!, where the stars received letters from home.

A letter from his son T.J. - which was read by his fellow contestant The Vamps' James McVey - revealed that Knowles had Radio X DJ Chris Moyles to thank for getting his cover of Bob Dylan's Make You Feel My Love to the top of the streaming chart.

In the clip James reads: "Just to let you know, you owe Chris Moyles a pint as - despite everything last week - him and his radio team managed to get Make You Feel My Love to number one in the iTunes Chart.

"Much love, T.J."

Later in the Bush Telegraph Knowles reacted to the news, saying: "If it's true it's very very lovely and thank you everybody. It's just very difficult to believe, but very lovely..."

It all began when the Radio X DJ looked back over the music career of the DIY SOS star since he entered the jungle on ITV's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here at the end of November, and gave his listeners a special call to action.

Go right back to the start and see where it all began in our video:

Referring to Knowles' 2017 album Every Kind of People, Moyles said on-air: "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?"

The listeners didn't disappoint, with the 56-year-old's cover of Bob Dylan's 1997 ballad.

Nick Knowles' people even reached out to The Chris Moyles Show to thank him, writing: "INCREDIBLE. Nick is Number 1. @ChrisMoyles you are a legend! "

That's not the only thing that may have helped Nick Knowles reached the top spot, though, as in an episode of I'm A Celeb, he revealed his rock star connections.

Knowles sent fans of the jungle-based reality TV show a frenzy after he revealed he had a jamming session with none other than Biffy Clyro.

Watch him explain all in the clip above, courtesy of ITV's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here:

Speaking to the camp, he revealed: "A couple of years ago I was playing on top of a rooftop bar in Soho with some other bands, famous people from bands..."

Knowles continued: "Somebody for a record company saw me doing it and then I got a phone call saying 'I'm from Universal. Do you want to do an album?'"

The 56-year-old TV personality revealed the band in the Bush Telegraph room was indeed Biffy Clyro, saying: "They won't mind, they're nice lads".

If that wasn't banterous enough, some genius edited Biffy Clyro's wikipedia to describe the Many Of Horror rockers as "Nick Knowles' back-up band".
