The former X Factor judge was driving down his residential road in his black Mercedes when the cat ran out in front of him.
Hitting the brakes and swerving, Nick flipped his car on its side as a result. Grimmy does not appear to have been seriously injured in the accident, however he was due to be at Radio One for 7pm to join in on a listening party of Frank Ocean’s new album with fellow hosts Annie Mac and Mistajam, but never arrived.
A representative said: “Nick is absolutely fine – he was driving at no more than 15mph and he swerved to avoid a cat. No one was hurt and Nick will be doing his breakfast show as normal tomorrow morning.”
