Presenter wears American football costume

Nick Grimshaw has shown off an interesting new look on Instagram.

The Radio 1 Breakfast Show presenter has turned jock for a shoot with fashion magazine LOVE.

A selfie shows him standing topless in front of a mirror.

In the picture, he’s wearing nothing but American football shoulder pads.

His hair is gelled into greasy strands and he has black stripes of facepaint on his cheeks.

@kegrand made me take my clothes off for LOVE magazine,’ he writes.

We listened to Nelly as I did it :(.

It’s not the first time the 28-year-old’s had a sexy makeover.

He donned a sharp suit to star as Robin Thicke in a parody of the Blurred Lines music clip.

In the video, he struts around with farm animals and nearly naked men.

At one point he poses with balloons spelling out ‘NICKE HAS A BIG DI..’.
