Nick Knowles, 60, is reportedly ready to walk down the aisle for a third time, after popping the question to his 33-year-old girlfriend. It's claimed the DIY SOS star asked Katie Dadzie for her hand in marriage during a trip to America last month, where the Nick has been filming recently.

The happy couple have been loved-up since 2021, after meeting at a play centre where their respective children struck up a friendship. Nick has previously defended his girlfriend after vicious twitter bullies branded her a 'gold digger' after noting the 27-year age gap between the pair.

Nick was married to his first wife Gillian, from 1995 until 2000 and then moved on to date TV presenter Suzi Perry from 2000 until 2003. The DIY guru then married Jessica Moore – who is 26-years his junior - and welcomed a son named Eddie with the TV star prior to their split in 2016.

It appears Nick is hoping it will be third time lucky when it comes to marriages, with a source claiming Katie is delighted her future husband proposed - with the pair "over the moon" and planning their future together.

Nick has previously hit back at critics taking swipes over his age-gap romance, defending business owner Katie. "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," he told The Sun.

He went on to add: "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."

Nick's comments came after he earlier hit out at trolls who accused Katie of being with him for his money - despite the fact that she’s actually more successful than he is. He wrote a furious response of Twitter, beginning: "I’m raging. The woman I was out to dinner with when we were papped is 32, has degrees in two subjects, runs 3 businesses, is a mother of 2, is wealthier & more successful than me & is intelligent & independent unlike the abusive trolls attacking her."
