Nick Grimshaw quits ‘The X Factor’ after one year as a judge

It’s a sad day for fans of ‘The X Factor‘ as Nick Grimshaw has confirmed that he’s quit the show’s panel after just one series as a judge.


After sitting alongside Simon Cowell, Cheryl, and Rita Ora on last year’s show, Nick has decided to quit.

Speaking on his Radio 1 Breakfast Show, Nick confirmed: “We announced on this show last year that I was going to do X Factor, and maybe now we should say that I’m not going to do X Factor. We just had a think about it and sat down, and I just thought it’s one of those things that I loved, I did love it, its not a diss to the show, it’s not me storming out of X Factor being like ‘screw you Cheryl’! It’s a great show and I loved it.”

He then joked: “You can’t have a curry when you’re on it on a Saturday night, because you’re there. Simon promised me curry!”

An X Factor spokesperson said: “Details for the new series of The X Factor are still being discussed and will be announced in due course.”
