Grimmy: No more Styles questions!

Nick Grimshaw said it's 'boring' being asked about pal Harry Styles

Nick Grimshaw says he hates being quizzed about his friendship with Harry Styles.

The Radio 1 breakfast show DJ has a host of A-list friends including Kate Moss, Lily Allen, Alexa Chung, Pixie Geldof and the One Direction heartthrob.

He told the Daily Mirror: "It's so boring to be asked about him. I just think it makes me look a d***head because I'm there saying, 'I know Harry Styles'."

The 28-year-old added: "I think he gets so much attention in everything he does. People are generally obsessed with him, it is like, 'Harry brushes his teeth'. Wow."

Grimmy says he has finally overcome his nerves and is getting used to his high-profile radio slot.

He also insists that his bosses were not worried that the last set of radio audience figures - the next set are due this week - showed he was slightly down on his predecessor Chris Moyles, telling the newspaper: "They just said the aim is to get the average age lower and get more teenagers listing. That was the plan."

A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
