He's presented the breakfast show for six years and is the second-longest running breakfast show presenter in Radio 1 history.

Nick said: "It was always my dream to do the breakfast show and I'm very grateful that I got to live my dream every day for what will be nearly six years.

"But six years is a long time and this isn't a forever job. I had the time of my life. I've decided it's time for a change and a new show."
