Nick Knowles, 59, breaks silence on romance with girlfriend, 32, and hits back at cruel trolls who slam their age gap | The Sun

NICK Knowles has opened up about his romance with girlfriend Katie Dadzie.

The DIY SOS presenter, 59, and Katie, 32, have been together since 2019 and have faced social media trolling over their age-gap.

But Nick hit back at the criticism as he opened up about their relationship for the first time.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun at the Inspiration Awards, he said: "I get upset when they come for people that I care about.

"Normally I never comment back to the trolls, but on one occasion when people were a little bit judgmental, I was angry on Katie's behalf.

"I chose to be on telly so I kind of expect it for me, but for people I care about they shouldn't have to deal with it.

"I'm protective of Katie, because people make assumptions about her without knowing anything about her, so that's why I spoke."

On a happier note, Nick also revealed he and Katie love nothing more than chilling out when they're get time off work together.

He said: "Our holiday in Dubai was lovely. I spent four months away from August to December doing these travel series and adventure series so I barely saw my family or Katie.

"The chance to have a Christmas with the family then get a few days away for ourselves  to recuperate and get back in the gym…. I mean there was a lot of laying on sunbeds as well.

"[It was] Mostly cocktails out there and couch potatoes when we got home. The thing is Katie is so busy running her businesses, and me being away filming, when we get together instead of going out and doing things we tend to just slouch out on the couch and watch a movie."
