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.
