    Nick Grimshaw's Radio 1 ratings hit record low - while predecessor Chris Moyles' smashes Radio X

    Nick Grimshaw has recorded the worst-ever Radio 1 Breakfast Show figures – but his rival and predecessor Chris Moyles Chris Moyles‘s show is on the up. The 33-year-old radio DJ – affectionately known as Grimmy on the programme – has seen his figures drop to 4.93 million weekly listeners between July and September, down from 5.5 million last quarter. The stat makes for grim reading for Grimmy as they are the lowest Radio 1 Breakfast Show figures since RAJAR records began in 1992.

    Top Gear shares first photo of new presenting trio

    The BBC has obviously been brainstorming ideas for how to follow Chris Evans’ departure from Top Gear – and may just have hit on a winning formula. Well, if a photo shared on the Top Gear Twitter account is anything to go by, the BBC may well be attempting to cast Matt Le Blanc, Rory Reid and Chris Harris as the new Clarkson, Hammond and May. The photo of LeBlanc and co having a chuckle on set confirms that work on the next series has now officially started. “I am thrilled that Matt LeBlanc is returning to Top Gear,” BBC Two boss Patrick Holland said at the time of his appointment. I can’t wait for the series to return to BBC Two next year.” Former presenter Chris Evans sensationally quit the show in July after just one series at the helm.

    Why Is The New Top Gear Getting So Much Bad Publicity?

    Chris Evans: ‘Top Gear Atmosphere Was Like Armageddon When I Joined’

    There’s no denying that Top Gear bosses had quite a difficult 2015 when their hit BBC Two programme was thrown into chaos after host Jeremy Clarkson reportedly punched a producer in the face following a “fracas” over a cold meat platter. With the Beeb left with no choice but to sack the star, co-hosts Richard Hammond and James May also left and producers had to find themselves a brand new host to carry the show. 49-year-old Chris Evans was the lucky one to nab the prestigious role, and now he admits that when he first joined Top Gear the atmosphere in the office “felt like Armageddon”.
