Nick Grimshaw: 'Peaches Geldof Death Made Me Re-evaluate My Life'
Radio 1 DJ has spoken openly about his friend's death, revealing her passing has made him change his partying ways...
Speaking for the first time since the socialite's death in April, the Radio 1 Breakfast Show host is quoted by The Mirror as saying: “It has made me re-evaluate my life and what I am doing with it. It makes me stop and think.“I have had a healthier lifestyle for quite a while now. I eat better food and drink less and I am trying to be fitter – and part of that is because I need to get up early and function.”
He adds: “I’m on air for hours every morning – I have to have something to talk about, that’s why I go out.
"I can’t just go on about the colour of my socks or whatever. It’s my job to go to parties.”
In the same interview with Times 2, the star also addressed his famous friendships with the likes of Harry Styles and Kate Moss, stating: “I hate being photographed. I really do. It’s not my fault I know all these people – if you spend an hour interviewing someone on the radio then you get to know them and they become your friend.
“I work very hard. I go out and do things people want to do and then I talk about it. I am honest. I’m just me.”
