Nick Grimshaw crashes car in order to ‘avoid pussy’

Rosie West August 23, 2016

The BBC Radio 1 DJ has been involved in a car crash after reportedly “swerving to avoid a cat”.

Nick Grimshaw was forced to pull of a radio appearance yesterday after he crashed his car.

Despite going only 15mph, the former X Factor judge tipped his £80,000 car whilst apparently avoiding a cat.

The DJ – who says he’s never felt the need to come out – was on his way to the BBC Radio 1 studios when the accident happened last night.

“The car went upside down. I’m absolutely fine,” he said on his radio this morning.

“I turned out of my house, my car flipped over and went over on its side,” he explained.

“People were like, ‘You can’t have been doing 15 miles per hour.’ I was, that’s how embarrassing this was.

“I came out of my street, turned right, saw quite a large ginger cat. I was like, ‘Oh no, a cat.’ Rather than killing the cat, I drove into a car,” he added.

“The car that I hit made my car tip over. The woman’s car is absolutely fine – she needs a new wheel arch, which I guess I’m paying for.”

Grimshaw downplayed the seriousness of the incident, claiming photographs of his car made the crash seem worse than it was.

Luckily, the pussy in question escaped unscathed.

“The cat’s fine. It sat there for the full two hours while I was out in the street,” he said.

“The cat met the police, the cat met the fire brigade, the cat watched me make a call to insurance to organise someone to pick the car up.”

Nick Grimshaw was set to feature in Annie Mac’s show to discuss the new Frank Ocean album.

A statement from his agent confirmed the news, saying: “”Nick is absolutely fine – he was driving at no more than 15mph and he swerved to avoid a cat.”
