I like him too. In fact now Moyles has departed I have returned to listening to Radio 1 Breakfast Show again. Nick has a great mix of music and guests. David Attenborough being my all time favourite.
I also can't see what problem people have with who he is friends with. He's been friends with many of them for several years so seems like a loyal friend to me.
When Moyles was on he got just as many people slagging him off on here. I didn't think I'd like Nick but I do, although when I saw him on the Brits I realised I'd pictured him as a different person. I don't really care what he looks like, though.
