Grimshaw leaves show on air after swallowing glass

BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw had to leave this morning's show while still on air after accidentally swallowing a piece of glass that was in a mug he was drinking from.

Fearne Cotton was forced to fill in for the final 45 minutes of the show as Grimshaw was rushed to hospital.

The 29-year-old DJ later tweeted that he coughed the piece of glass up after an X-ray and was "all fine now".

Grimshaw, who replaced Chris Moyles last year, saw his average audience reach 5.88 million according to industry body Rajar.

But is still less than Radio 4's Today Programme, which had an average audience in the second quarter of this year of 6.97 million, and way behind Evans whose average audience was 9.75 million.

Radio 1 controller Ben Cooper paid tribute to Westwood's 20 years service: "I'd like to thank Tim for the last 20 years on Radio 1. His passion for hip hop is legendary. I wish him all the very best."
