He also confirmed that he did indeed quit the show, rather than being given the axe by show boss Simon Cowell.
"There hadn't been any discussions when I made my decision. So I thought before there were months of speculation over who was going to be back, I'd say I didn't want to and get it out of the way. Once I decided, I decided and that was it."
“I will miss X Factor but I don’t regret my decision to go," he said. He also hinted that he may well fancy doing some more on screen work in the future, saying, "X Factor hasn’t put me off TV at all.”More stories Nick Grimshaw said he never felt the need to come out Attitude Media Recognition Award: The X Factor
