Nick departed from Radio 1 after 14 years at the station in the latest ‘diverse’ line-up reshuffle from the BBC. 

Speaking on his show, Nick said of his exit: ‘I have some news guys, some big news. It’s big news for me to announce. I want to do it at the start of the show otherwise I’ll be weird for the next two hours. 

‘I’ve been thinking about it for a little while, after 14 years of working here I’ve made a big decision.’ 

Nick went on to say how he has kept his exit a secret and hasn’t ‘told anyone’ as he wanted to let his listeners be the first to know.

He said: ‘It a huge decision, an exciting one and a happy one. It’s something I’ve given a lot of thought. Radio 1 is home to me. It’s the only station I’ve wanted to work. 

‘I was thinking the past 18 months have been the most surreal moments ever. A lot of you guys, you take stock in times like this and look at your life. I looked at mine and I wanted to make that change. 

‘My childhood dream was to work on Radio 1 and I have been lucky enough to make that dream come true.

‘It has been everything I’d imagined and even more. I grew up wanting to connect with people and to feel accepted and the Radio 1 listeners gave me that and let me be part of their daily life, for which I will be eternally grateful. 

‘But over the last few months I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my future and after 14 years, I’ve made the decision that it’s time for me to move on – I’d like to thank the listeners as without them none of this could have been possible and the Radio 1 family, who have been such a huge part of my life. Thank you thank you thank you.’

It comes as insiders told MailOnline Nick’s decision to leave Radio 1 ‘isn’t about money’, but because he wants a new challenge.
