Nick Grimshaw says Peaches Geldof's death forced him to "re-evaluate" his life
Nick Grimshaw says the death of Peaches Geldof has changed his outlook on life.
Speaking to the Telegraph, the BBC Radio 1 man said that seeing someone close to him die so young has encouraged him to examine his own life more closely.
Grimshaw said: "[Peaches’ death] has made me re-evaluate my life and what I am doing with it. It makes me stop and think.
"I have had a healthier lifestyle for quite a while now. I eat better food and drink less and I am trying to be fitter and part of that is because I have to get up very early and I need to function."
However, the Breakfast Show host added that he is obliged to go to late night showbiz gatherings due to the nature of his career:
"It’s my job to go to parties. I’m on air for hours every morning. I have to have something to talk about - that’s why I go out. I have hours to fill every morning and I can’t just go on about the colour of my socks or whatever."
