Nick Grimshaw to leave The X Factor

BBC Radio 1 breakfast presenter Nick Grimshaw won’t be returning to The X Factor this year.

He confirmed the news on his show this morning, saying: “I did love it and it’s not a diss to the show. It’s a great show and I loved it. But it’s definitely a once in a lifetime style thing.”

Gimmy’s spokesman told The Sun: “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. He remains a massive fan of the show and is looking forward to watching it this year.”

In addition, a spokesperson for The X Factor told Digital Spy: “Nick was a great mentor on last year’s series. He did a fantastic job with the boys’ category and we’d like to thank him for all his hard work. We are sad to see him go but wish him all the best.”
