Nick Grimshaw Breaks His Silence Following Dramatic Car Crash

Nick Grimshaw was involved in a dramatic car accident last night after he swerved on the road in order to avoid a cat.

The Radio 1 DJ’s £80,000 Mercedes completely overturned in the crash near his home but the star was thankfully left completely unscathed.

Nick was on his way to BBC studios for a Frank Ocean listening party but his neighbour, Henry Stewart, tweeted a photo of the crash and wrote: “@grimmers unhurt after this, in next street to us.

"Going 10mph, he swerved to avoid a cat.”

A rep for Nick added to The Sun: “Nick is absolutely fine - he was driving at no more than 15mph and he swerved to avoid a cat.

"No-one was hurt and Nick will be doing his breakfast show as normal.”

And that he did, with the former X Factor judge tweeting late last night: “Had an accident in the car but all ok - shout out to all my lovely neighbours for helping out.

"See you in the morning…. I’ll er get a cab”.

At least he still has his sense of humour, eh?

The accident comes after it was revealed that Nick is working on a new TV show that he hopes to be a follow-up to BBC classic ‘Top Of The Pops’, admitting that it was his “mission” to get music back onto television.
