BBC Radio 1 presenters Nick Grimshaw and Greg James have been found hiding at Weston’s Grand Pier as part of the radio’s hide and seek game yesterday (Wednesday).

BBC Radio 1 presenters Nick Grimshaw and Greg James have been found hiding at Weston's Grand Pier as part of the radio's hide and seek game yesterday (Wednesday).

The pair kept their location secret in the town for more than 25 hours, beating the previous 22-hour record achieved last year.

The Mercury understands an office at the side of the pier was cordoned off until the pair's location had been revealed.

The presenters were found hiding out at the south tower of the pier, and Radio 1 revealed the news just before 6pm.

Group marketing manager for Weston's Grand Pier, Lucy Graham, said: "It's been great fun and I'm delighted Radio 1 chose the pier for its Hide And Seek' game location.

"Fun and exciting experiences are what the pier is all about."

Greg and Nick were whisked away from Radio 1's London studios on Tuesday morning.

People were then actively encouraged to call the station and help locate the pair, who could have been hiding in any part of the country.

Greg James presented Radio 1's Breakfast Show from Weston's Grand Pier live this morning (Thursday).
