Why the f–k is it Scott Disick? … My husband, Harry [Hamlin], made it quite clear that he would not object if [our daughter] Delilah [Belle Hamlin] and Eyal [Booker] got married, which is pretty shocking, but that says a lot. I can’t say the same for Amelia at this point now.

It is the latest big departure in recent weeks, with Annie Mac also announcing in April that she was leaving after 17 years and being replaced by Clara Amfo.

Speaking on his show, Nick said of his exit: 'I have some news guys, some big news. It's big news for me to announce. I want to do it at the start of the show otherwise I'll be weird for the next two hours.

'I've been thinking about it for a little while, after 14 years of working here I've made a big decision.'

Nick went on to say how he has kept his exit a secret and hasn't 'told anyone' as he wanted to let his listeners be the first to know.

He said: 'It a huge decision, an exciting one and a happy one. It's something I've given a lot of thought. Radio 1 is home to me. It's the only station I've wanted to work.

'I was thinking the past 18 months have been the most surreal moments ever. A lot of you guys, you take stock in times like this and look at your life. I looked at mine and I wanted to make that change.

'My childhood dream was to work on Radio 1 and I have been lucky enough to make that dream come true.

'Taking over Drive is a task we won't be taking lightly, but Jordan and I are ready to put our all into making your journey home that little bit brighter.'

Jordan, meanwhile, appeared as a cover presenter on Radio 1 from 2014, and four years later was announced as the new host for the station's Greatest Hits show on Sunday mornings.

In September last year, Jordan was announced as the new regular 11am-1pm weekend host on BBC Radio 1. He also was the main cover presented for Nick and Scott Mills.

The I'm A Celeb star added: 'I am absolutely chuffed to be making the move over to Radio 1 daytime and even happier to be working alongside Vick.

'Grimmy is a Radio 1 legend so we definitely have big shoes to fill but will work extremely hard to make sure afternoons on Radio 1 still sound superb.

'I am super excited to get started and look forward to this next chapter with Vick and the rest of my Radio 1 family.'

Aled Haydn Jones, Head of Radio 1, said: 'I am so excited for Vick and Jordan. The audience have taken to both of them over the last year so it's a dream to be able to bring them together to host such an important show in Radio 1's schedule.

'I can't wait for people to hear some of the ideas and projects they've got lined up, they're really pushing the boundaries of what we can do.

'September is going to be a new sound for Radio 1, from established great broadcasters to bringing through the next generation of talented DJs we will continue to reflect our young audience across the UK and we'll have a lot of fun doing it.'

Ahead of this 'new sound' being unveiled, Radio 1 has seen a big change in its line-up with some of its biggest stars exiting.

Nick's exit comes shortly after Annie Mac announced she would be stepping away from the microphone after 17 years.

The DJ, 42, confirmed her departure in April, telling listeners her job has been like a 'second home'.

Clara Amfo has been revealed as her replacement on BBC Radio 1's flagship music show, Radio 1's Future Sounds.

Annie later took to Twitter and wrote a statement about her decision to leave, saying she wants to spend more time with her two children who she shares with her husband and fellow BBC Radio 1 DJ Toddla T.

Nick joined BBC Radio 1 in 2007 presenting the BBC's youth strand Switch with close friend and fellow DJ Annie.

He hosted the show for 9 months solo while Mac hosted a weekend lunchtime slot.

The radio host then went on to present Radio 1's Weekend Breakfast Show, followed by the 10pm – midnight slot on BBC Radio 1 on 1 June 2009, following the departure of Colin Murray.

He was handed the prestigious Breakfast Show slot in 2012 taking over from the hugely popular Chris Moyles.

He stayed on air in the AM until 2018 when he swapped shows with Greg James. His move meant Grimshaw took over the 4-7pm drivetime slot.

In July 2017 the BBC confirmed that Nick's salary was in the £350,000 – £399,999 bracket. The BBC later reported between 2020/ 2019 he got  £240,000-£244,999 per annum.

Several Radio 1 fans were left shocked by the news that Nick would no longer be hosting his shows, with some even saying they felt 'devastated' by his exit.

Others wondered why he was leaving the station so soon after Annie Mac also announced that she was stepping away from Radio 1.

One person even penned: 'What's the point in Radio 1 without Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw?'
