Nick Knowles, 59, spotted with new girlfriend, 31, as they enjoy steamy kiss in the street

DIY SOS lothario reportedly first met Katie at their kids’ playgroup, but it took years until they went on their first date at a restaurant in Bath in August 2021

He turns 60 in September but Nick Knowles’ relationship with 31-year old Katie Dadzie is going strong – eight months after the couple were first spotted dating.

They celebrated Easter with a romantic dinner in London’s Mayfair, then strolled hand-in-hand while window shopping, enjoying several kisses along the way.

One onlooker said: “Nick and his girlfriend looked pretty loved up as they wandered down the street. They were smiling and laughing as they looked at the new Bentleys through the showroom window, before hoping in a taxi together.”

The pair were first linked romantically in August after DIY SOS star Knowles met the young mum-of-two at a kids’ group attended by his youngest son.

It is not the first time Knowles has dated a woman almost half his age. He previously went out with PR woman Emily Hallinan, 27, claiming it “wasn’t the end of the world to be single for a while” when they split in February 2020.

That relationship came after the dad-of-four split from his second wife Jessica Rose Moor, now 33, in 2016. The couple share his youngest child, seven-year-old Eddie.

Knowles has previously complained that he finds it hard to make a relationship go the distance. “They last six months and start off with me explaining that I work a lot, so will have commitment issues,” he said. “The women involved agree that that is fine, then after a month I get a phone call saying, ‘This isn’t on.’ After three months, we split up, then get back together. After five, there’s another tussle. At six, it’s all off.”

As a TV presenter, Knowles was dealt a blow when he was told two of his BBC series would not return. Lottery gameshow Who Dares Wins was axed after a 12-year stint in 2019, while Home is Where the Art Is was dropped in 2020 after just two runs.

Last year he was suspended from DIY SOS after dressing as a builder to advertise breakfast cereal Shreddies, which was against BBC rules. He has since been reinstated.

The DIY SOS lothario reportedly first met Katie at their kids’ playgroup, but it took years until they went on their first date at a restaurant in Bath in August 2021.

Katie isn’t the first younger woman that Nick has dated.

He was previously spotted cozying up to PR exec Emily Hallinan in 2019 – who was 30 years his junior – and the pair dated for a year before calling it quits in 2020.

Nick announced that he was single on Twitter at the time as he told his followers not to worry about Valentine’s Day as he too would be spending it alone.

Just days prior to being first seen with Emily, Nick was spotted enjoying the company of a mystery blonde.

Back in 2018, Nick it was reported that he had embarked on a new romance with marketing executive Rebecca Kearns – who was also 30 years his junior.

A year earlier in 2017, Nick became embroiled in TOWIE-level drama after he was linked to one of its stars, Pascal Craymer, who reportedly went on a string of dates she labeled “cringey”.

She went on to accuse Nick of having a “mid-life crisis” and claim that she had blocked him after he dumped her to date other women.

However, a pal of Nick’s later accused Pascal’s claims that they had dated “bonkers” and said that they had only met up once as a favor to her manager at the time.

In 2016, former Emmerdale star Gemma Oaten was left in tears after their brief romance crumbled as they lay in bed together.

At the time, she claimed that the DIY SOS star suddenly grew cold and distant after they were photographed cuddling together at an awards do.

Following the release of the photos, Nick ruled out any more dates with Gemma after claiming he was trying to save his marriage with his (then) estranged wife Jessica Rose Moore.

Jessica, who is 26 years younger than Nick, was married to the presenter from 2012 until 2016 and the pair share her Eddie together.

But Jessica previously said that she was “blindsided” by Nick’s decision to separate in January 2016 after four years of marriage.

Despite the pair splitting, Jessica and Nick remained close at the time and she credited Nick with saving her life as she struggled with cervical cancer.

Yet things turned nasty two years later after she accused him of “emotional cruelty” in a blistering attack on Twitter.

The parents were later able to resolve their issues.

Prior to Jessica, he dated presenter Suzi Perry, who he put on the set of BBC’s City Hospital from 2000 until 2003.

He also enjoyed a brief romance with beauty therapist Paula Beckett-Vass – who he shares son Tyrian-J with – and was married to his first wife Gillian Knowles for five years from 1995.

The pair share two grown-up children together – Charlie, 27, and daughter Tuesday, 26.
