Nick Grimshaw has revealed that he was never asked to host The BRIT Awards 2015 after James Corden quit.
As former host James Corden stepped down from the role after last year’s ceremony, Grimmy was tipped as a possible replacement.
However, the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show DJ spoke out about the reports, saying: “That was never a thing,”
“It was just in the paper… I never went to a meeting and no-one said ‘Do you want to do it?’ It was just the paper said I was.”
Asked if he would like to do it when pushing 40 like this year’s hosts Ant and Dec, Grimmy said: “Yeah, I could graduate to it. You don’t want to do it too early.”
Meanwhile, Grimmy also spoke about his collaboration with Topman, revealing that it was something he had “always wanted to do”.
“I thought I would always do music or do fashion… I was helping Kate [Moss with the DJing at the party to] launch her Topshop stuff and then I was in the office and thought ‘I want to do this!'” he said. “And then it slowly happened from there.”
Ant and Dec are this year’s presenters of The BRIT Awards 2015 which is hosted in London tonight.
The BRIT Awards 2015 starts from 8pm tonight on ITV.
