Nick Grimshaw Biography
Nick Grimshaw born Nicholas Peter Andrew Grimshaw, is an English television and radio presenter. He was born on 14 August 1984 in Oldham, England and grew up in the town of Oldham, Greater Manchester.
Nick Grimshaw attended the University of Liverpool between 2002 and 2005, studying Communication and Media Studies, but failed his final year, graduating with a DipHE rather than a bachelor’s degree. During his studies at the University of Liverpool, Nick Grimshaw was also a member of the University’s student radio station, ICON Radio (now LSRadio).
Nick Grimshaw co-presents with Annie Mac on Switch on Sunday nights on Radio 1, and Sound on BBC2. Grimshaw was spotted by BBC while he was DJing at the ill-fated pub, which suffered in the Camden fire of 2008 and marked the moving East of a scene in the process and was offered the Switch Gig. Grimshaw became a more constant presence in radio and on TV (he presented T4’s Freshly Squeezed with Alexa Chung shortly before co-hosting Switch) and celebrity press in the near decade that followed.
Nick Grimshaw’s credits include the first TV interviews with artists such as the first Jack Penate, Remi Nicole, and Kate Nash. Not bad for someone who has only lived in London for a little over 18 months!
Prior to his current career, Grimshaw was a radio plugger and DJ promoter. He is also building up a press portfolio in tabloids and Fashion magazines. Nick Grimshaw will stop hosting the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show in September, 2018 amid falling listening figures and will be replaced by Greg James.

Nick Grimshaw Partner – Nick Grimshaw Boyfriend
Nick Grimshaw has been linked with Harry Styles ever since the pair struck up a close friendship several years ago. Asked by The Sun if anything had ever happened between him and Styles, Grimshaw opened up about their relationship saying:
“No, no. Not at all,” he responded. “It was an odd, odd thing to happen. It wasn’t very weird at the time, it’s weirder now.
“At the time, you’re just getting on with your life and you’re doing the radio and just hanging out and you’re like, whatever,” continued Grimshaw.
“But it was weirder when he came on to do the solo stuff and I started doing my Harry research, writing questions and stuff, and when I Googled him I was like: ‘This is actually a thing.’”
When questioned over why he thought people assumed they were together, he said: “It’s kind of crazy because we’d met and we just really got on.
“I don’t know if it’s because we were both Northern and had quite a similar sense of humour and because he was down in London and away from northerners and friends and family and we all just ended up hanging out together and getting on.
“I think that people assumed that because I was gay and he wears like floral shirts that he must be gay, and they were like they must be going out with each other.
“But I don’t know, it was something we never actually discussed together.”

Nick Grimshaw Interview
What is your earliest memory?
Waking up in a car alone: I was trapped in my car seat and crying. I guess I’d been asleep and my mum and dad had let me sleep on.
Which living person do you most admire, and why?
My mum. I just got back off holiday with her and we had the most fun. She’s game for whatever.
What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
A really short attention span.
What is the trait you most deplore in others?
People who constantly complain about how crap their life is.
What was your most embarrassing moment?
It’s always embarrassing when you fancy a guest and everyone listening knows because you’ve harped on about it for years. Jake Gyllenhaal and Chris Pratt interviews really get to me: I always get red.
Property aside, what’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought?
A table that used to belong to David Bowie: it was £13,000.
What is your most treasured possession?
My dogs, Pig and Stinky Blob.
What is your wallpaper?
The worst Face Swap ever of me and my best friend, Pixie Geldof.
What would your super power be?
That if I ate Snickers, they’d give me a six-pack.
If you could bring something extinct back to life, what would you choose?
What is the greatest love of your life?
What is the worst thing anyone’s said to you?
I hate it when people say it’s time for bed. I never want things to end.
Who would play you in the film of your life?
What is your most unappealing habit?
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
Genuinely, the host of Radio 1’s Breakfast Show.
What is your guiltiest pleasure?
Once a month, I really enjoy a cigarette – and immediately hate myself.
What do you owe your parents?
All the money they paid for me to go to university. I didn’t pass my degree.
What was the best kiss of your life?
On holiday in the Maldives with my friend George, who is straight. One day we created a fake wedding with a fake priest and choir. When I kissed him, I thought, my actual wedding will be worse than this joke wedding.
Which living person do you most despise, and why?
Ronald McDonald: when I see his face, I can’t not have a McDonald’s.
Who would you invite to your dream dinner party?
My actual friends and family: by the time I get home, I don’t want to talk to anyone I don’t know.
Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
What is the worst job you’ve done?
When I was doing A-levels, I worked in a factory that made homework diaries, which was fine until they banned talking and the radio.
If you could go back in time, where would you go?
Ancient Egypt. As a kid, I decorated my room with papyrus and wore Egyptian dress.
How do you relax?
I watch The Simpsons.
How often do you have sex?
I can’t answer that because my mum reads the Guardian.
What single thing would improve the quality of your life?
A breakfast show that starts at noon.
What is the most important lesson life has taught you?
Being honest makes your life easier.

Updated on 27 September 2018.
DJ Nick Grimshaw who airs at BBC Radio 1 will be at Loughborough University today to share the behind the scenes secrets of a national radio station. He has his fellow crew and producers accompanying him. They will be on campus to speak about their work, and give exclusive insights and backstage gossip from the station.
The visit will also includes interactive games for the students with music and giveaways.
What time will he be there?
The BBC Radio 1 tour bus is at the Hazlerigg Fountain on Lougborough University campus from 10 am until 5 pm. The Q&A session with Nick Grimshaw will take place at 12 pm and the event is free for the students, but tickets are limited.
The presenter, who is often known as Grimmy, swapped his breakfast show for the drive time slot in August. He had been host of the breakfast show since 2012. His move came just after becoming the second-longest running breakfast show presenter in the station’s history, beating the record held by Tony Blackburn.
What could you win?
The BBC Radio 1 tour bus has previously visited Portsmouth University, Warwick University and the University of Derby, as well as others all over the country. As well as the chat with Nick Grimshaw there are also prizes up for grabs.
The event is free for students who could have the chance of winning four tickets to Radio 1’s Big Weekend in 2019. Big Weekend is a music festival run every year in a different location. Loughborough Students’ Union has been approached for comment.
