DIY SOS star Nick Knowles was recently photographed taking a romantic stroll with his new girlfriend Katie Dadzie in Mayfair, London
Nick Knowles said he was “angry” after internet trolls started posting negative comments about his girlfriend – who is 26 years his junior.
The 59-year-old Who Dares Wins presenter and his sweetheart Katie Dadzie were pictured strolling and kissing through London’s Mayfair after a romantic dinner recently.
The couple were first linked in August last year after DIY SOS star Nick met the young mother-of-two at a children’s group attended by his youngest son.
Taking to Twitter, Nick hit back at those who criticized Katie when he boasted that she “runs three businesses” and is “wealthier and more successful than me”.
He tweeted on Wednesday night: “I’m raving. The woman I was dining with when we were cut is 32, has degrees in two majors, runs three businesses, is a mother of two, wealthier and more successful than me, and is intelligent and independent unlike the abusive ones trolls attacking them.
“What happened to #Be friendly?”
Fans took to the comments section to support the moderator.
“Unfortunately, people will be people and today it is others’ turn,” said one user.
“I’m sure she’s a very nice person and you both should be able to go out without any negative comments, your life is yours and each other’s. That’s why I prefer Cats and Dogs.”
Another tried to keep things light, saying, “What did you have to eat?” to which Nick replied, “Japanese food – was lovely.”
“This young lady sounds amazing and a real asset to the world!” A user complimented his girlfriend.
“I can’t imagine what the ‘trolls’ would say about them, which deserves attention! I wonder if they ever really look at themselves and are satisfied with what they see.”

The DIY SOS Lothario reportedly first met Katie at her children’s playgroup, but it was years before they went on their first date at a Bath restaurant in August 2021.
He was previously spotted cuddling with PR executive Emily Hallinan – who was 30 years his junior – in 2019 and the pair dated for a year before calling it quits in 2020.
He also had a brief romance with beauty therapist Paula Beckett-Vass – with whom he shares son Tyrian-J – and was married to first wife Gillian Knowles for five years from 1995.
The couple share two adult children – Charlie, 27, and daughter Tuesday, 26.
Nick also has seven-year-old Edward, whom he shares with his former wife Jessica.
