Grimmy's Allstars take a thrashing

The England netball squad showed no mercy to a team of Radio One DJs led by Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw when they trounced them 27-0.

Grimmy led the Radio 1 Allstars in the clash against the national team on Thursday, with all adorned in striking sports socks .

But the combined talents of Greg James, Danny Howard, Daniel P Carter. Chris Stark, Dev and Twin B were no match for them and they couldn't even get one shot through the England net!

The idea for the match came from netball fan and actress Collette Cooper who recently appeared on Grimmy's breakfast show. It meant she had to miss netball training with her club.

There was plenty of good-natured banter via Twitter between the two sides before the clash, but the underlying tone to the tweets from the lads suggested they were not full of confidence in their abilities.

Dev tweeted that he would be scoring all the goals during the match, while Daniel P Carter included a link to a website listing the rules of the game.

Chris Stark and Greg James got in some 'promising' netball practice in the Radio 1 studios but it appears it didn't do them much good in the game as they failed to even get one goal on the scoreboard.
