Nick Grimshaw appears to be in great spirits as he enjoys lunch with his boyfriend Meshach Henry... after hosting his final Radio 1 show

He hung up his microphone on Thursday, handing over the reins to his Drivetime show to Jordan North and Vick Hope.

And Nick Grimshaw seemed to be in good spirits as he adjusted to life after Radio 1 on Saturday and enjoyed lunch out at Scott's in London.

The presenter, 36, who joined BBC Radio 1 in September 2007, was joined by his dancer boyfriend Meshach Henry, with the duo tucking into a seafood platter.

Nick put on an animated display as he chatted to his partner and got stuck into their sharing lunch.

He cut a fashionable figure in a black leather jacket with a soft collar and styled the coat with a smart shirt. 

The star completed his look with a selection of silver rings as well as a pair of thick black frame glasses. 

Meshach also kept things casual in a black shirt with a silver zip down the front and added a quirky touch to his ensemble through some funky shades.

The duo's lunch date comes after Nick said an emotional farewell to his listeners after an impressive stint at Radio 1.

In the opening to his final-ever show at 2pm last Thursday he said: 'We are here for my final show on Radio 1 – and I feel the weirdest ever.

'I just want to have a fun show. I'm going play you some of my favourite songs I've just loved playing on Radio 1 over the years. It was my childhood dream, I've had the time of my life.'

He added that he had an emotional meeting with the team that work on the show ahead of his final gig.

He explained: 'It's weird. We just did a zoom in the office with everyone from radio one, like DJs, producers, management and everyone who works here. It was emotional. 

'I've cried three times today. My boyfriend got me a really nice card, Caroline who I work with sent me a really nice message, that was cry number two. And, oh, I've cried four times.'

Ahead of his final show fellow presenter and close friend Clara took to Instagram with an emotional message as she shared several snaps of them together.

Nick's exit from the station came  as insiders told MailOnline his decision to leave 'isn't about money', but because he wants a new challenge.  

A source said: 'It's not about the money. He's done Drivetime, the Breakfast show, hosted late night but now he's stepping away from radio as he wants a new challenge. 

'Nick's loved every minute of his time at Radio 1 and loves broadcasting. He will still be starring on Celebrity Gogglebox. 

'He has been at Radio 1 for 14 years and wanted a change.' 

BBC bosses have chosen I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! runner-up Jordan, 31, and Vick, also 31, to replace him on the airwaves in the afternoons, starting from Monday, 6 September 2021.
