His gang remind me of the really "cool" kids you get at six form colleges, who think they are far better than anyone else because they wear edgy clothing, listen to cool indie bands and do "hilarious" zany things.
NG & chums remind me of this Father Ted clip - which features Graham Norton as Fr. Noel Furlong, the hyperactive leader of a long-suffering church Youth Group ....

Fr Noel preens himself, and asks Dougal: "What age would you say I am?..go on, guess!"
Dougal: "forty "
Fr Noel: "......"

as a gay male they will try and shoe horn him into every thing they can ala graham norton and john barrowman.

Remember Graham was on everything before they found a format that worked for him.

Be prepared for Nik Grimshaw to become BBC's Mr Saturday Night!

I must admit, he is a smug looking idiot though.
They wouldn't allow that ugly mug on prime time TV, would they?

He's the very definition of 'face for radio', all his features are decidedly odd, like they're on upside down or summat and his gob could rival Denise Welch for its obscene gapingness.

I want Nick Grimshaw as a best friend.

I'm in the (tiny) minority that think he's great.

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.

Whenever I see Nick Grimshaw I'm always reminded of this parody song

He might not drink. He did look very scruffy.

Is it only me who finds him completely and utterly insufferable? He so far up his own behind I'm surprised he knows what day of the week it is.

Does he have any ordinary friends? And by ordinary I mean non celebrities. People who do normal jobs? He just loves parading him famous "buddies" about doesn't he?
Der....you could say this about most celebs! I would think that being famous panders to an inflated ego. It's all about status so why would a celeb be buddies with people who are not famous?
Of course there are the rare exceptions, Bill Murray (the famous actor) being one - kudos to him, huh!?

Before the md 90's Radio 1 used to be a family station. Parents listened and so did their kids, there was something for everyone. It was a bit like Heart but with more variety in the playlist Nowadays if your over 25 the station deems you ancient.

R1's loss are is some other stations gain.
Didn't they refuse to put Robbie Williams' song Candy on their playlist, even though it got to Number 1, because Robbie it too old? IIRC Nick Grimshaw said that Robbie was no longer relevant. Charming. It's a shame Radio 1 have gone this way.

I'm not sure if it was the whole of R1, but Grimshaw definitely refused to play it because he thinks that Robbie is no longer relevant. It's no wonder that there are so few artists enjoying long term careers these days when stations like R1 are refusing to play anyone who's been around longer than about two years.

The fact that Candy still got to #1 without their full support just proves how out of touch R1 has become. There are so many songs that become huge top ten hits that Radio 1 never touch, but commercial stations play them ad nauseum. Another example is "Drive By" by Train. Never off Heart etc, I don't think I heard it on R1 once.

I know - I was really pleased about that! I love the song too, though as I am over 12 Radio 1 probably don't care about me! Radio 1 should provide a better mix, especially in the daytime, but most of the DJ's are far too pretentious to play anything popular

I think that's the demographic they are trying to engage. Anyone beyond that age or mindset is going to find it irritating as hell by default.

Some people are just extrovert.

People who value celebrity status are always going to annoy those who don't care, and vice versa.

Nick said on yesterday's show that when he met Robbie he explained to him that what he actually said was not what had been printed. Although Robbie said himself he shouldn't be on radio1 nowadays.

Also people have said Nick is a lovely blokedand has no ego.

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.

Jeremy Kyle has that "honour" surely
I got slated for saying i had no sympathy for him when he was ill, as for Grimshaw i could happily punch his smug face.

I don't understand that. I'm not a fan of Robbie Williams or his music, but if his single got to number 1 in the charts then why isn't he relevant?
Is Nick Grimshaw the self-appointed judge of what is cool or something?

Sounds more like Radio 1 aren't relevant if they don't play an act whose music has got to the top of the charts.

Looking at him in the photos linked to in this thread, he seems to think that he's a really funny guy doesn't he?

In one of them he even does that 'rabbit ears' with his fingers thing behind somebody's head as the photo is taken.
"I'm so wacky, zany, madcap and irreverent I am".

The photos suggest otherwise.
He appears to be a walking definition of over-sized ego.

They get rid of one arse doing the breakfast show, then employ another one. What is it with the BBC that they have to employ unattractive narcissists for Radio 1?

Nick Grimshaw doesn't get to choose what's played on his show and he did play Candy (go back and check the song lists if you want). He's also commented several times on the 'made up feud' between him and Robbie and how once again the papers had taken his words out of context (they've done it again today by reporting he blames Harry Styles for being a 'bad influence' on him, when actually it was a Showquizness question and not in any way serious). The made up crap that gets turned into 'fact' about Nick Grimshaw is ridiculous.
