Nick Grimshaw wants Justin Bieber's house for X Factor

Nick Grimshaw wants to borrow Justin Bieber's house for 'The X Factor'.

The 30-year-old DJ will join the judging panel for the singing contest's upcoming 12th series and is hoping to use the 'Boyfriend' hitmaker's Los Angeles pad during the Judges Houses section of the show, when acts jet off to an exotic location to fight for their place in the live shows.

A message from the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show Twitter account read: "Hiyaaa @justinbieber is your house free for @grimmers to be a judge in? Late August ideally. Thanks. (sic)"

The tweet comes after the radio presenter joked he was deliberating between filming the segment on the tropical Caribbean island of Barbados or in his hometown of Oldham in Greater Manchester.

Speaking to fellow judge Cheryl Fernandez-Versini on his show, he said: "I'm thinking of doing it in Oldham ... Have you been before? It's gorgeous. That's where I was born and bred so I was thinking maybe I'd go back there, that or maybe go there or Barbados, they are the two options I'm thinking."

After announcing his new role as a judge alongside Cheryl, Simon Cowell and Rita Ora, the chirpy presenter admitted he already felt like the odd one out on the judging panel when he met up with them last night (15.06.15).

He confessed: "I met the others last night, went and had a pint with them. No one else had a pint. Just me."
