An outsider to take over from Breakfast Show behemoth Chris Moyles, Grimshaw went live on Radio 1 primetime in 2012.Before then, he hosted the late night show for the station, after getting his break with the corporation in 2007, co-hosting Switch, Radio 1's online-savvy youth brand, with Annie Mac.In an interview last year he told ES Magazine: "I grew up watching The Big Breakfast and TFI Friday.A British TV presenter and model, Chung is best known for presenting Channel 4's weekend youth strand T4 and shows such as 'Frock Me' and 'Vanity Lair'.Brought in by BBC executives to attract a teenage market, Grimshaw's Twitter-obsessed patter and enthusiastic early morning banter has brought in just that – while the over-30s have left in their hundreds of thousands.But despite bringing the BBC the lowest Radio 1 listenership since 2003, Grimshaw is in hot demand.But his glitzy social circle greased the wheels of his ascent: when Grimshaw was interning at MTV during the mid-noughties he found himself among the blossoming Camden set that generated gossip and glamour a decade after Brit Pop – indeed, he was only in London in the first place after being persuaded to come down by Mairead Nash, half of DJs Queens of Noize.
Henry had this amazing energy about him and such infectious laughter.

I've been in New York a few years now, though when I'm back we all still hang out as a big group. An old boyfriend of hers shot a lot of the musicians for our covers and as she was interested in photography, she often came along, too.
Our circumstances have changed, but I don't think any of us have – though maybe now Henry can afford a bigger spare room. She had a wonderful dry sense of humour and, of course, she was gorgeous; I loved her feline eyes.
Henry Holland, 29After graduating from the London College of Printing, Holland flung himself into the limelight in 2006 with his 'Fashion Groupies' T-shirts featuring slogans such as 'UHU Gareth Pugh', 'Get Your Freak on Giles Deacon' and 'I'll Show You Who's Boss Kate Moss'. We had the same group of friends, such as Grimmy and Pixie [Geldof], and we started hanging out away from the party circuit. She's very good at singing Kings of Leon's Sex on Fire. Me and Pixie will sing Bryan Adams songs: Alexa has much cooler taste than me, as I like cheesy stuff, such as Girls Aloud, and she likes more indie stuff.
We were in similar places: early on in our careers, before it went a bit mad for us, and we formed a bit of a brat pack: Grimmy [Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw], Aggy, me and Henry, coming together at parties for the free drinks, one of us always DJing.
