The host started off his career when he served his apprenticeship as a carpenter in Ireland in the late 1970s.

Based in Bristol, he has worked as a carpenter ever since then, travelling all over the UK, Europe and the U.S, and now runs his own building firm.

He is the build manager on DIY SOS, meaning he has to work out how to fit weeks of work into just nine days for each project.

Mark Millar: Age

  • Mark is thought to be in his fifties, but this is unconfirmed

Mark has never publicly announced his age, or when his birthday is.

The Channel 5 star, who got married to his wife Lara in 2019, is estimated to be around 50 years old, having been in the building trade since 1970s.

This is based on the likelihood that Mark began his career in either his late teens or 20s, having moved to Bangor, Wales, at a young age.

Having worked as a joiner before moving to England, the job at DIY SOS was offered to him four times, but he turned it down due to being busy.

He joined the programme in 2006, seven years after he was first approached in 1999 to be a project manager on the renovation series.

He also regularly goes for walks and explores nature with his wife Lara, and daughter Megan, who is a Bristol-based photographer.

The passionate cold water swimmer also features his bathroom and kitchen projects, and often meets with friends for swims, ice cream or pints.
