Nick Knowles turns 60 in September but an age gap isn’t stopping his latest relationship with 31-year old Katie Dadzie from going strong – eight months after the couple were first spotted dating.
The loved-up couple celebrated Easter with a romantic dinner in London’s Mayfair, before strolling hand-in-hand and enjoying several kisses, reports the Mirror.
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 romantically linked back in August 2021 after the DIY SOS star met the mum-of-two at a kids’ group attended by his youngest son.
But it took years until they took the plunge and went on a first date at a restaurant in Bath last year.
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.”
But Knowles is no stranger to dating younger women.
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.
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 accused the presenter of having a ‘mid-life crisis’ and claimed to have blocked him after he dumped her to date other women.
But a pal of Knowles’ hit back at Pascal, insisting claims they had dated were ‘bonkers’ and that they had only met up once as a favor to her manager.
Former Emmerdale star Gemma Oaten was left in tears over their brief romance, claiming Nick grew cold after they were snapped cuddling together at an awards do.
Gemma claims he was trying to save his marriage with his (then) estranged wife Jessica Rose Moore, with further dates ruled out.
Jessica, who is 26 years younger than Nick, was married to the presenter from 2012 until 2016 and the pair share son Eddie together.
The young mum previously said she was “blindsided” by Nick’s decision to separate in January 2016 after four years of marriage but credited him with saving her life as she struggled with cervical cancer.
But the relationship soured 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, I have dated presenter Suzi Perry, who has met 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 with Tyrian-J – 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.
