The T4 presenter will take his seat at the end of September, when Moyles steps down after nearly nine years of hosting the prestigious national radio slot.

Grimshaw has been with Radio 1 since 2005. He currently fronts two shows on the station, the Sunday late evening slot which he shares with Annie Mac, and a two-hour show Mondays to Thursdays, as part of youth strand Switch.

Radio 1 boss Ben Cooper called Grimshaw "a great broadcaster, a passion for music and a great sense of humour as well".

The 28-year-old presenter from Oldham is also a face on Channel 4.
