DIY SOS is one of the BBC’s best-known programmes which has been airing for over 20 years in 2021. Nick Knowles is recognised as the face of the show as he’s been presenting it since the very beginning.
However, anyone who has tuned into DIY SOS on Tuesday, November 16th may be wondering where Nick is and who he’s been replaced with. So, let’s find out more about Nick’s absence and whether he will be back on the BBC show.
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’.“

Who is Rhod Gilbert?
