Nick Grimshaw had to leave his Breakfast Show early on Monday after swallowing glass.

The DJ was replaced by Fearne Cotton for the last 45 minutes after being taken to hospital.

The glass was in a mug the DJ drank from during his show and he was taken to hospital for an X-ray.

Grimshaw, who has now been given the all-clear, tweeted: "Went to hospy, had X-rays, coughed it up, all fine now."

He was accompanied to hospital by a member of Radio 1 staff and the cause of the incident is being looked at.

Monday morning marked the host's first breakfast show since returning from a trip to Kenya for Sport Relief.

The DJ, 29, is set to be part of BBC's Radio Around the World for Sport Relief on 17 March.

Grimshaw is also expected to take part in a 12-hour cycle ride in a large, transparent box outside the BBC's Broadcasting House.

His leg of the challenge, which aims to rack up 1,000 miles towards a total of 25,000, starts in his Breakfast Show at 0700 GMT and finishes in Greg James' Drive Time Show at 1900 GMT on the same day.

According to the latest radio listening figures, The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw has gained 700,000 listeners in the past three months.

Rajar's October to December results show he has an average of 6.29 million listeners.

The show is 400,000 listeners down compared to this time last year.

It has the same amount of listeners as previous host Chris Moyles had after doing his first year of breakfast.

The rise is a contrast to October's figures, when Grimshaw saw his audience figures fall by 300,000.
