Grimshaw to appear in five TV soaps

Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw is aiming for a TV clean sweep by appearing in five different hit soaps.

The Breakfast Show host will play five different characters in his cameo appearances in EastEnders, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks, Coronation Street and Home and Away.

He said: " In a bid to make my mum proud of me, I'm going to do one better than Danny Dyer and rather than be in two soaps, be in five and hopefully then she'll accept me."

Soap stars are featuring on the show every morning this week with Shane Richie, who plays Alfie Moon in EastEnders, kicking off things.

Other guests lined up include Coronation Street's Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally Webster in the show, and Steph Waring and Alex Fletcher from Hollyoaks.

Details of the cameos will be revealed on air each day with Nick's soap star guests reviewing his acting ability and sharing backstage interviews from the shows.
