Radio 1 breakfast show DJ Nick Grimshaw is swapping the wireless for a spell in front of the camera as host of a new panel show for BBC3 called Sweat the Small Stuff.
Kiss FM DJ’s Rickie and Melvin will take the role of team captains on the new comedy show, while Rochelle Hume from pop group The Saturdays will be a regular guest on the show.
Sweat the Small Stuff will see 28-year-old Grimmers share his daily, fickle obsessions with his celebrity guests. The teams will also play a series of games and answer questions to “draw out the really important matters in life.”
Of his new venture, Grimshaw said: “Really excited about my new show! Being the host of a panel show is what self-centred dreams are made of and I can’t wait to show off on both the radio and now, primetime television!”
BBC3 controller Zai Bennett revealed Sweat the Small Stuff had been “built around the annoyingly talented Nick Grimshaw” and went on to say: “Sweat the Small Stuff promises to be quick-witted, topical and silly, but most of all very, very funny.”
