Series one, episode one
Perkily tonsured Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw is a busy man these days. Not content with getting up at stupid o’clock every morning to drag the nation’s youngsters out of their beds, he’s also undertaking this new project. It’s filming close to transmission so no preview material was available. But what we’re dealing with is, essentially, a new panel show.
Every week, Grimshaw will be joined by Kiss FM DJs and team captains Rickie and Melvin, and regular guest Rochelle Humes from The Saturdays. They’ll be exploring pet hates and irrational personal obsessions – in other words, the smallest issues of the day. We suspect this could go either way. Grimshaw’s a likeable chap, but there are so many panel shows these days that a new one is going to struggle to really distinguish itself.
