'X Factor' Judge Nick Grimshaw 'Finds Love With Photographer Michael Mayren'

Nick Grimshaw has reportedly got a new boyfriend, to match his swish new job on ‘The X Factor’.

The talent show judge - who has replaced Louis Walsh - is said to have fallen for photographer Michael Mayren.

The Sun reports that Grimmy has been growing closer to Michael, after a year of friendship.

While a spokesperson for Nick has insisted that he and Michael are “just friends”, Grimmy shared a snap from Michael’s birthday on Instagram last week, showing the heavily tattooed snapper sat out in the countryside.

Many pictures of the pair spending time together at Glastonbury last month have also been posted.

Despite chatting away on his Radio 1 Breakfast Show each day, Nick is usually very private when it comes to relationships.

He only publicly came out in 2012, just before he took over the breakfast show from previous host Chris Moyles.

While there has been speculation about his friendship with One Direction’s Harry Styles, Grimmy was previously linked to Italian fashion stylist Nicco Torelli.
