Er, sorry Lauren Silverman - it looks like Simon Cowell has formed quite a bromance with Nick Grimshaw
Here at Now we love a good celebrity bromance and there’s a very exciting new one brewing up over at The X Factor.
We’re thrilled to hear that new judge Nick Grimshaw has struck up quite a bond with head honcho Simon Cowell. In fact it’s going so well that Grimmy says they’re going to get MARRIED! Erm, awkward for Lauren Silverman much…
Nick, 31, told Good Morning Britain’s Richard Arnold at the X Factor TV series launch in London last night: ‘We’re in love. He’s actually proposed to me and I’m going to marry him.’
The Radio 1 DJ then showed off a ring on his finger to the camera and said: ‘That’s our wedding ring, right there.’
Wow, that moved quickly! Simon, 55, has got form when it comes to TV bromances of course, given the relationship he has with David Walliams on Britain’s Got Talent.
David has often joked about his love for Simon but Nick thinks HIS bond with the music mogul far surpasses that he had with David. Ooh, getting competitive are we boys?
‘Him and David were joking for the camera, this is the real thing,’ said Grimmy.
Hmmm, we’d love to know how Simon’s partner Lauren – the mother of his 18-month-old son Eric – feels about all of this…
Nick and Simon are so close it seems that they’ve even formed their own sort of language.
Grimmy revealed during his chat with GMB that they’ve both started using the word ‘swamp’ – meaning swaggy camp, obvs – for certain contestants.
‘You can’t really describe it,’ said Nick, though he admitted that he actually thinks it suits Simon down to a T.
If Nick tries to claim ownership of the term then he’ll have a battle on his hands though from his, um, other half. Simon was adamant that he’d created it, saying: ‘I made that up!’
Is this the first lovers’ tiff, we wonder? Now all we need to do is come up with a name for the Nick/Simon bromance – maybe Simmy? Grimell? Anyone?
