MILLIONS spent six years waking up with Nick Grimshaw when he hosted the Radio 1 Breakfast Show — but there’s only one man doing that now.
I’ve learned the popular DJ has moved his boyfriend Meshach Henry into his home in North London after less than a year together.

I revealed last October how Grimmy was in the early days of dating the dancer but their relationship has now blossomed to become his most significant romance.
A source close to the presenter said: “Nick is the happiest he has ever been and Mesh is a massive part of that.
“They were spending all of their time together, with Mesh always staying over, so it made complete sense for them to move in together.
“Nick asked him to come and live with him and it’s all gone really well. Their jobs aren’t regular nine to fives so they can spend a lot of time together in the week.
“They are really smitten and Nick’s family and friends love Mesh. He even went to Nick’s mum’s birthday celebrations at the weekend.”
Nick’s last serious relationship was with Italian stylist Nicco Torelli, who he dated for several months in 2013 and 2014. The DJ swapped the breakfast show for a drive time slot on Radio 1 last August and admitted at the time that he finally felt he wanted a boyfriend.
He said: “I think the reason I wanted a relationship before was so my friends would say, ‘Oh my God, he’s got a boyfriend — and he’s gorgeous!’ As a kind of self-validation.
“Whereas now I think I want someone to be nice to me and who can teach me things. I’m quite open to that.
“Before, I always put my career, friends and social life first.
“My attitude to boyfriends was, ‘ if you do not fit into my life then it’s not going to work’.
“Whereas now I’d be prepared to make more effort.”
Judging by how happy he seems now, it was well worth the wait.

Harry’s fashion flare-up
HE may have bucketloads of charm, but it seems Harry Styles needs some help with his, er, style.
The ex-One Direction singer showed off his latest outfit in London – and seemed to be trying to bring camel corduroy flares back into fashion.

Harry, it won’t happen, mate.
He topped off his look with a baker boy hat, and we all know those haven’t been cool since David Beckham started wearing them.
Harry has been in the US recently, where he auditioned for the role of Prince Eric in Disney’s reboot of 1990 classic The Little Mermaid.
Let’s hope it’s his acting flair – not his fashion flares – that get him the role.
J-LO’s fiance Alex Rodriguez isn’t the best at giving presents. For her 50th her got her a £120,000 Porsche, then told everyone: “She hasn’t driven in 25 years.” I doubt that was because of her lack of a sports car.
Liam keeping mum on Twitter rants
HE thinks he’s a hardman rocker who gets into fights with the likes of Idris Elba, but there’ll always be one person Liam Gallagher will fear – his mum.
The former Oasis rocker was told off by Peggy for his Twitter rows with his brother Noel and he was so afraid of her, he lied and claimed the messages were posted by a hacker.
Liam said: “Me mum did give me a bit of a b******ing on the phone about my tweets. She went, ‘Look, you better pack it in’.
“I went, ‘All right, I was hacked’. She went, ‘What do you mean, hacked?’ I was like, ‘I was hacked, someone got my phone and did all that, the police are looking into it, Mum’.”
He also defended his bickers with Noel and said he loves him.
On a new podcast, Liam said: “Listen, I was in a band with him for however long, and I’d come out of interviews and people would be going, ‘He don’t like you, does he?’ It’s just payback time now. I don’t mean any harm, I love Our Kid.
“If you can’t slag your brother off, who can you? You can’t slag your mum off.”
For once, I agree with Liam.
Jesy ends bully beef
LITTLE Mix’s Jesy Nelson says she’s finally learned to love herself after years of being called “the fat one” in the group.
The singer, in the girlband with Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall, posted this throwback picture of herself from 2011 on Instagram and told fans that making an upcoming anti-bullying documentary for the BBC had helped her accept herself.
Jesy said: “Six months ago this girl was someone I just wanted to forget. I was made to hate her by endless trolling.
“Thanks to all the inspirational people I’ve met on this emotional journey, I now love the girl in this photo. Now when I look in the mirror, I don’t see Jesy the fat one, I see Jesy the happy one.”
LADY Gaga has sparked dating rumours after she was seen kissing her sound engineer Dan Horton during a lunch date in California. It follows her split from her fiance, talent agent Christian Carino in February.
Joel’s got Game
FRESH from appearing in Danny Boyle’s Yesterday and TV’s Requiem and Game Of Thrones, up-and-coming actor Joel Fry has landed his biggest role to date.
The Brit, who I can see becoming a huge star, has been cast in Disney’s 101 Dalmatians live-action prequel Cruella, playing a henchman to Emma Stone’s Cruella de Vil.
A film source said before filming starts next month: “This role could really propel him to the movie mainstream. Not only is he really talented, he has heart-throb appeal too.”
GIGI Hadid made a splash when she posted this sexy snap on Instagram.
The model is on holiday with her sister Bella and their pals in Mykonos, Greece, and cooled off in the shower by her private pool as the temperatures hit 32C.
And Gigi should relax while she can. In five weeks she will be back to the day job at New York Fashion Week, before hitting the road and walking in back-to-back shows at London, Milan and Paris.
It makes me want to sink a Pina Colada just thinking about it.
ANNE-MARIE isn’t feeling pressure to keep having hits. She said: “Sometimes you think something’s a hit, and then it doesn’t become a hit and sometimes it goes the opposite way. You’ve just got to enjoy it.”
DWAYNE “The Rock” Johnson has revealed he drinks four US-sized gallons of water each day, which is the equivalent of 27 pints. Perhaps it’s just water in those big arms of his.
JOE Jonas and Sophie Turner got matching tattoos of their dog Waldo after he was killed by a car in New York. On a snap on social media Sophie said: “RIP my little baby.”
MARIAH Carey sent “love and congrats” to LIL NAS X after Old Town Road beat her 1995 Boyz II Men collaboration One Sweet Day as the longest-running US No1 at 17 weeks.

Cardi B-id to beat rival
CARDI B and Nicki Minaj’s feud is still bubbling away.
Following a war of words late last year, Cardi is refusing to play in arenas in Europe unless she can make the tour bigger than her rival’s.
The rapper has provisionally pencilled in a tour for next spring, her first one here, but is causing a headache for promoters because of her insistence on beating Nicki.
A music insider said: “Nicki performed a 19-date arena tour in Europe this year but didn’t come near to selling out most of the venues. It has put promoters on edge about putting on massive shows by female rappers. But Cardi is not taking no for an answer when it comes to doing anything less than Nicki.
“Cardi has yet to sign a deal because the current scale of the tour doesn’t outdo Nicki. She believes she is far more popular and will pull the tour altogether unless hers looks more impressive.”
I suppose another collaboration is still off the cards then . . .
