Christopher Idle (1771 – 8 March 1819) was a British politician. He was Member of Parliament for Weymouth and Melcombe Regis from 1813 to 1818.

Idle was born in Penrith, Cumbria, and was elected to parliament at a by-election on 9 June 1813, after the previous election in October 1812 had been declared void. He was granted leave of absence in 1817 for health reasons, and did not seek re-election in 1818.[1]
