Nick Grimshaw involved in car accident

Nick Grimshaw's car flipped over on Monday (22.08.16) after he swerved to avoid a cat.

The Radio 1 Breakfast Show host was on his way to the BBC studios for a Frank Ocean listening party with hosts Annie Mac and Mistajam when he overturned his £80,000 Mercedes near his home.

A neighbour, Henry Stewart, tweeted a picture of the overturned vehicle and wrote: "@grimmers unhurt after this, in next street to us. Going at 10mph he swerved to avoid a cat (sic).

A representative for Nick told The Sun: "Nick is absolutely fine - he was driving at no more than 15 mph and he swerved to avoid a cat.

"No one was hurt and Nick will be doing his breakfast show as normal tomorrow morning."

Meanwhile, Nick - who left 'The X Factor' this year after one season - recently revealed he hasn't given up on TV and is on a "mission" to make a music programme.

Nick is working hard to develop a new show which he hopes will be a follow-up to 'Top of the Pops' - the long-running chart show, which was axed in 2006 after over 40 years on screen - as he thinks the UK "needs" a mainstream pop series.

He said: "I'm writing a show with my friend Aimee. We've just started writing it. We're in talks to do a show.

"It's a music show, it'll be a show getting music on television.

"It's what we need so I'm going to make it happen. It's my mission."
