The 5-minute Interview: Nick Grimshaw, DJ and TV presenter
'I like playing with raw meat. I could be a butcher, or a band manager'
Wednesday 26 December 2007
Nick Grimshaw presents 'Freshly Squeezed', a music show on the television channel E4
If I weren't talking to you right now I'd be...
I need to buy a Hoover so I'd probably be doing that. I've been putting it off.
A common misperception of me is...
People imagine me to be short when I'm actually six-foot-one.
I wish that people would take more notice of...
My personal space. I hate when someone stands too close to you. On the Tube, in the shop.
A phrase I use too often...
I have a new phrase every other day. I use "sick" quite a lot. Or "bare sick".
The most surprising thing that happened to me was...
I went to this club and was having a wee in a urinal and it turned out it was the basin. It was a massive great big fountain: what was I supposed to think? It looked like a urinal.
I am not a politician but...
If I were, I'd be lying to you right now.
I'm good at...
Cooking a meal at someone else's house. I don't really like the cleaning up, so I only cook at other people's houses.
I'm very bad at...
Staying awake anywhere: films, conversations I just fall asleep. I have no attention span.
The ideal night out is...
A big meal with a lot of friends. I love it when it's around 15 people. Then maybe to a pub.
In moments of weakness I...
Eat. I've been known to have four Snickers bars in one day.
You know me as a presenter but in truer life I'd have been...
Maybe a band manager. Or a butcher. I used to really like playing with raw meat. Or maybe I could combine the two.
The best age to be is...
It doesn't matter. I'm friends with anyone. Age is nothing but a number.
In a nutshell, my philosophy is this:
Chin up, cheer up. It works.
