But despite bringing the BBC the lowest Radio 1 listenership since 2003, Grimshaw is in hot demand.
He's currently the subject of strong rumours to take over from X Factor judge Louis Walsh – placing him at the centre of a tussle between ITV and the Beeb – and is the favourite to front Channel 4's TFI Friday comeback.

Ever since Grimshaw took over from Moyles, who brought the station record listening figures, numbers have been plummeting: he lost a million listeners in his first three months alone, and most recent RAJAR (Radio Joint Audience Research) reports show that these have dropped by a further 800,000 listeners.Or maybe they were already dating and Styles was being low-key trolled by the BBC Radio 1's Nick Grimshaw (who is actually his close pal).Considering Styles looked to people off-camera after this moment and said, "I hate everything about you," I'm going to put my money on trolling.Fashion designer Henry Holland, fellow Mancunian and model Agyness Deyn and socialite Pixie Geldof swiftly became his contemporaries, and all of them would socialise at the Hawley Arms – the preferred drinking hole of Amy Winehouse.The BBC spotted him when 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 Grimshaw was offered the Switch gig.
Before then, he hosted the late night show for the station, after getting his break with the corporation in 2007, co-hosting Switch, Radio 1's online-savvy youth brand, with Annie Mac.
