Nick Grimshaw was made presenter of the Radio 1 Breakfast Show in 2012 as he took over from Chris Moyles with the popular slot.

The TV host stayed presenting the show for six years before swapping with presenter Greg James on the drive time show.

The 37 year old star has now left Radio 1 after 14 incredible years with the BBC, and he looked back on the time his boss asked him to host Radio 1 Breakfast, while discussing his involvement with Gousto's Flavourlust campaign.

OK! asked the DJ: "What was one thing you weren't fully prepared for in life?" to which he shared: "When I was asked to present Radio 1 Breakfast because I thought I was getting fired."

He went on to explain the "scary" situation further: "I went into a meeting and I thought I was being fired, when actually, they asked, ‘Do you want to do the Breakfast show?’"

"I was not prepared for that. It was a bit of a shocker."

When asked why he thought he was getting the boot from his boss, he replied: "It just seemed really serious. It was at 9am and my boss wanted to see me. It was scary, yeah."

In the same chat, Nick revealed the idea of his perfect evening, as he teams up with Gousto on their new campaign.

"My idea of a perfect evening would be… staying in!" he revealed.

"Last night we stayed in, and I cooked a mega meal from Gousto.

"I honestly felt like a chef. Yeah, I enjoy hanging out with my family and having nice food."

Speaking about the campaign further, Grimmy admitted he loves trying new foods when he goes on holiday.

"I really love going on holiday and trying different foods when I’m out for dinner or lunch. I like experimenting and trying something new," he said.

"I think you want to be doing that when you are on holiday and not being fussy.

"It's annoying when you go with your friends, and they're like, ‘Oh, can you make that but without that… can you take the garlic out?’"
