TV’s home fixer-upper Nick Knowles is dating a mum-of-two 27 years his junior.
The BBC star, 58 is in a relationship with Katie Dadzie, 31, whom he met at their kids’ playgroup.
The DIY SOS presenter and Katie made their public debut at a restaurant in Bath last week — five years after Nick’s split with wife Jessica, the mum of his youngest son, Eddie, seven.
A source said: “Nick and Katie have known each other for a couple of years, but it’s always been platonic.
“They actually met through their youngest offspring and went on a few playdates as pals, before romance blossomed. Katie is a beautiful woman, fiercely independent and just Nick’s type.
“They’ve met one another’s friends and, although it’s early days, everyone is hopeful this might be for keeps.”
Nick and Jessica Rose More, 33, married in 2012 and separated in 2016.
Five years ago, Jessica revealed she had cervical cancer and Nick supported her throughout her ordeal before their relationship turned sour.
She accused him of refusing to pay the school fees for their son.
He has previously said: “My relationships have pretty much followed a pattern.
“They last six months and start off with me explaining that I work a lot, so will have commitment issues.
“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, then get back together. After five, there’s another tussle. At six, it’s all off.”
In 2019, Nick started dating PR woman Emily Hallinan, 26. But on Valentine’s Day last year, he announced that he was single again.
Nick was recently embroiled in a TV storm after The Sun revealed he had appeared in a Shreddies advert, against BBC guidelines. But the corporation has said he can continue to host DIY SOS.
