The Radio 1 DJ was due to return to the drivetime show on Monday, but must now quarantine at home.
The Radio DJ is taking part in a 100-mile trek across the Namib desert in southern Africa for Sport Relief.
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.
His love-life grabs as much attention as his music - but Harry Styles admits he has been out of the dating game for 'a long time'.
Nick Grimshaw was involved in a dramatic car accident last night after he swerved on the road in order to avoid a cat. 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. 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.
Louis Walsh has confirmed, once again, that he wasn’t really a fan of 2015’s X Factor judging panel. The X Factor veteran is returning to judge this year’s competition, alongside fellow returnees Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and, obviously, Simon Cowell. Taking a dig at the former judging line-up in an interview with Best magazine, Louis said: “Sharon and I are old, but that means we’re far more experienced, unlike the young whippersnappers on last year’s panel who didn’t know a thing about talent.
You wouldn’t think that Nick Grimshaw’s hair could be a hot topic of conversation, but, once again, it’s making the headlines today (July 14).
Louis Walsh clearly has no intention of letting his spat with Cheryl (just the one name now, folks) dying a dignified death.
After his stint as an X Factor judge didn’t work out too brilliantly, Nick Grimshaw has announced his next project. And it’s a Top Of The Pops spin-off show.
Nick Grimshaw has been speaking more about his decision to leave his seat on The X Factor judging panel after just one year in the role. Grimmy had a very busy few months during his time on the show, juggling mentoring duties with his boys category, judging the show every Saturday and Sunday night and presenting his Radio 1 Breakfast Show. Having insisted that there’s ‘no bad blood’ over his decision to watch the show from the comfort of his sofa this year, Nick has now explained exactly why he decided to walk away from The X Factor.
During a recent interview, Jake Quickenden opened up about his musical idols and hinted at a possible return to The X Factor. The former X-Factor contestant has been testing the waters with his music since being eliminated from the singing competition in 2014. Jake released his debut EP “I Want You” last year and he is due to follow up with a project entitled “The Next Chapter”, which he is currently promoting.
Harry Styles’ best pal Nick Grimshaw has had a dig at the way Zayn Malik has mixed capital and lower-case letters on the tracklist for his debut album. Multi-millionaire Zayn has been ‘dissed’ for his use of caps lock. Former One Direction singer Zayn, 23, is preparing to release his first record Mind Of Mine later this month and whetted fans’ appetites by releasing the tracklist on Instagram.
After yesterday’s reports that Olly Murs was ‘in discussions’ about his X Factor future and that Simon Cowell was giving him the chance to walk before he’s pushed, the singer has now quit the show. This comes after Nick Grimshaw bowed out of his seat on the judging panel, with rumours also claiming that Olly’s presenting partner, Caroline Flack, has been given the boot. Given that we’re only in February and there’s already been all this drama, something tells us it’s going to be a long few months before the next X Factor begins.
Simon Cowell reportedly called Nick Grimshaw a ‘dead man walking’ and had plans to cut him mid-series according to new reports. An insider close to the show has told The Sun that Simon was unimpressed with Nick before the live shows even began and doubted his decision to have him on the panel ‘almost immediately’. “Grimmy has been a dead man walking for a long time.
Nick Grimshaw has opened up about his decision to leave X Factor insisting that there is no ‘bad blood’. Following the shock news of his departure from the ITV show this morning, the Radio One DJ has gone on record as saying that there is no tension between the two camps. Explaining his side of reports in a special dedicated segment on his Radio One breakfast show this morning, Nick said he’s not about to ‘diss’ the show because he’s no longer part of it.
After the new-look series failed to impress audiences and ratings declined, Simon Cowell has decided to have a shake up at base camp. Nick’s spokesman made a statement on the Radio1 breakfast presenter’s decision: “After careful consideration, Nick’s decided to rule himself out as a judge on this year’s X Factor. "He loved working on last year’s series alongside Rita, Cheryl and Simon but it was very much a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Not only that but bookmakers Ladbrokes have also said that Tony Hadley – yes, TONY FRIGGIN’ HADLEY – of I’m A Celeb, Spandau Ballet, as well as ‘Reborn In The USA’ fame could also be in with a shot of joining the show next year. Tony’s currently 10/1 favourite to join, with former Take That singer Robbie Williams close behind at 12/1.
Numeracy was always our favourite part of the day at school, and just a faint whisper of the words ‘ratio’, 'long division’ or 'quadratic equation’ makes us go weak at the knees. Anyway we know you’re chomping at the bit to find out who the nation’s favourite has been this year, and of course it’s none other than Simon Cowell! Coming second was newcomer Rita Ora, who’s apparently enamoured the public so much by continually forgetting everyone’s names that 21% of those who voted said she was the most fantastic of the bunch.
With Adele set to descend on the X Factor this weekend for a performance that EVERYONE has been waiting for, we couldn’t help but wonder if Che Chesterman - he who forgot the lyrics to Hello - is worried about coming face-to-face with the singer. Che is one of three finalists in this weekend’s live final showcase at Wembley Arena but he admits he was worried he would be sent home after his forgetful rendition of Hello a couple of weeks ago. Adele is set to perform her smash hit number one single on the ITV show on Sunday and it’s safe to say this has been a moment show boss Simon Cowell has been praying for.
In true ‘it’s-the-x-factor-final-this-weekend’ style, the remaining hopefuls, Louisa Johnson, Che Chesterman and Reggie ‘N’ Bollie, managed to set some time aside from their current battle bus tour to transform into ‘real popstars’ - Louis Walsh would be proud. First up, Che Chesterman, who sported glasses and a peak cap during the audition stage, appears without his eye wear and looking polished with his new slicked back hair.
