Thousands of people are asking ‘is Nick Grimshaw gay?’

Joseph McCormick August 31, 2015

Thousands of people apparently didn’t know that Radio 1 DJ and newly inaugurated X Factor judge Nick Grimshaw is gay.

Grimmy took to X Factor on Saturday night for the opening of the new series of X Factor, but many Twitter users apparently were unaware that he came out some years ago.

While thousands tweeted, apparently unable to get an answer to the question “is Nick Grimshaw gay?”, many were directed to this PinkNews article.

In the article, from August 2012, Grimmy confirms he is gay, and says that he quite fancies Frank Ocean.

The topic trended over the weekend, as many struggled to figure out whether the DJ is gay or not, and quite a few women struggled to deal with the information.

Some people apparently didn’t get the memo…
