HE HAS been making a difference to people’s lives for nearly two decades now – transforming their homes and their lives.
Whether they’ve been ripped off by builders, suffer a disability or are coping with a tragedy, Nick and his gang have helped save the day and made things a little bit brighter for them. Here’s the lowdown on the home-building star…
BBC Nick is best known as the host of DIY SOS
Who is Nick Knowles?
He was born Nicholas Knowles in Southall, Middlesex on September 21, 1962, to parents Pat and Eddie.
He has one brother, John and three sisters – Angela, Sheila and Karen.
When he was 11, his family moved to Mildenhall, Suffolk before moving again to Kent where he attended The Skinners’ School.
Nick was married in the ’90s and after he and his wife, with whom he had three children, separated, he met fellow TV presenter Suzi Perry and they lived together for three years.
He then met Jessica Rose Moor in 2009, they were married in 2012 and their son Eddie was born in 2014. They separated in January 2016 but he supported her through her battle with cervical cancer which she won.
Following her recovery, Jessica decided to give their marriage a second try – but their relationship ended for good in December 2016.
The TV presenter also enjoyed a short-lived romance with ex-Emmerdale star Gemma Outen – with the actress claiming she was dumped by text.
Nick, lives in Andalusia, Spain also plays rugby and has been a vegan for several years.
Nick has battled with some difficult issues over the last few years and turned to counselling to help him get through it.
He teamed up with Princes Harry and William and Kate Middleton as part of a two-part documentary, Mind Over Marathon.
The show featured 10 unlikely runners who live with different mental health issues, all of whom trained for the London Marathon.
What has Nick’s ex-wife Jessica Rose Moor said?
On January 26, Nick’s former wife Jessica, accused him of refusing to pay school fees for their son Eddie.
She claimed the TV star had gone back on a plan to send the three-year-old to public school.
Posting on Twitter she said: “As all parents can relate, children starting school is an incredibly emotional and happy time.
“I did not submit a submission for Eddie as it has been long agreed by my (soon to be ex) husband that Eddie would be privately educated — a luxury he is in the position to afford, as he has done for all his other children.
“As such, Eddie is enrolled to start private school this September (a school that me and my husband visited and chose together) except that he won’t, as I was advised by my husband’s solicitor that this promise has been withdrawn.”
She added: “To add insult to injury – like many men in his position of wealth and power he has advised he will not pay any legal fees meaning that I cannot afford to fight for our son’s education. My husband has also said he will not purchase a house or give a settlement of any kind for us, this is disappointing but not unexpected — some people’s generosity is only present in front of TV cameras.”
Nick has furiously denied the allegations — which have now disappeared from Jessica’s social media feed.
And now pals say the TV presenter is flew back from the States to “try and sort this mess out”.
A friend told the Mirror: “Nick has been in tears over this – he is utterly shell-shocked.
“He is trying to do what’s best for his family and is devastated things have blown up the way they have.
“Despite everything, he still really cares for Jessica, not least as she is the mum of his son. He is looking forward to getting to the bottom of everything.”
The couple split in 2016, he is now dating Rebecca Kearns.

How did Nick get a job in television?
He started work as a runner before moving into production and in the early ’90s he presented a show called Ridge Riders which featured a celebrity and guests riding classic motorbikes around the UK.
He then went on to host various quiz shows for the BBC including Who Dares Wins, Perfection and Guesstimation.
But Nick is best known as the host of DIY SOS which first broadcast on the BBC in 1999.
The weekly show sees a team of builders go into a viewer’s home after a DIY project has gone wrong.
In 2000, it became known as DIY SOS: The Big Build with a slight change to its format.
Nick assembles a team of local tradesmen, builders and help from the local community to rebuild or redecorate a home for a deserving family.
He also hosts the BBC game show, Who Dares Wins.
