How did Nick Grimshaw and Mesh Henry meet?

Nick, 37, and Mesh, 25, first met in a London pub in 2018, and they knew almost instantly that they were suited to one another.

Speaking of when he spotted his future partner in the smoking area of a pub on Hackney Road, he told Keith Lemon: "Me and my friend were queuing to get in and I saw him and didn’t say anything to my friend and my friend, she was in front of me, so went in and she’s like, 'I’ve literally just seen your husband, that guy, we’ve got to talk to him'." He continued: "I was like, 'No don't do it', and then she did."

This all happened on a Friday night, and Nick ended up cancelling a holiday he had planned for that weekend in order to spend more time with Mesh.

"I’d rented a house in Deià for my friends and my mum and my sister, so it was like a family and friends like and then I met Mesh on the Friday and on the Saturday I didn’t go," he explained on Alan Carr’s Life’s A Beach podcast.

The pair started living together at their North London home at the start of lockdown and announced their engagement in March 2022 after a four-year relationship.

This comes after he previously admitted to struggling with his dating life amid his Radio 1 schedule. On what he wanted in a partner, he told The Times in 2018: "I think I want someone to be nice to me and who can teach me things — I’m quite open to that. I always put my career, friends and social life first before. My attitude to boyfriends was: if you do not fit into my life then it’s not going to work. Whereas now I’d be prepared to make more effort."

When are Nick Grimshaw and Mesh Henry getting married?

Nick previously admitted he would want a low-key wedding

Just days after they've shared their happy news, Nick and Mesh haven't released any details about their wedding plans. But Nick previously confessed his ideal big day would be a low-key event at home.

"I don’t think I’d get married. I think I’d just have a party, in my house, or at a local pub," he said in an interview with The Times. "I don’t know why people do those weddings where they get all stressed out and go to the gym for six months so they don’t look like they’ve ever looked and they eat food they don’t like. It’s weird."
