Where is Nick Knowles on DIY SOS?

When it comes to DIY SOS, Nick Knowles is the main man. But, he’s nowhere to be seen on the November 16th Children in Need episode.

Nick has stepped back from the BBC show in 2021 for a surprising reason as reported by Bristol Live.

The outlet wrote that Nick: “had to miss the special episode because he played a builder in the Shreddies advert“.

Bristol Live continues: “Under the BBC’s editorial guidelines, actors and artists who appear in its shows are prohibited from appearing in promotional work ‘in a way which mimics or replicates their on-air roles for the BBC’.

Will Nick return to DIY SOS?

Yes, Nick Knowles will be back on DIY SOS.

Thankfully, as reported by the BBC, Nick will return to his DIY SOS role following reports that it was under threat due to his appearance in a Shreddies TV advert.

The BBC writes: “He will resume filming in the coming months and be back on screens in 2022“.
