Nick Knowles health: TV star had to 'find a better way' of managing his health after scare

Nick Knowles is best known for (literally) building people a better life. The DIY SOS host is now actively working on himself too. Speaking on BBC One’s Saturday Kitchen on Saturday, Knowles said he intended to lose three stone by giving up beer and wine. This is not the first time he has been on a health kick.

In 2014, the TV star had a health scare that prompted him to drastically rethink how he was living his life.

The DIY SOS host suffered a ruptured sinus artery.

Knowles spoke about the injury and its subsequent impact on his life in an interview a few years later.

“I had to find a better way to manage my health after a scare [a stress-related ruptured sinus artery in 2014],” he said in an interview with Big Issue.

He continued: “I knew I couldn’t change my pace; it’s who I am. But it was plainly an issue. I was on the way to doing to myself what my father had done to himself

“So I went to a retreat in Thailand. I took up yoga, became vegan, and they’ve worked well for me.”

A few years later, Knowles gave a general update on his health status.

Speaking to the Mirror, he explained: “I am on my feet all day with DIY SOS, and so that keeps me fairly fit.

“I am not fully vegan – I have never gone the whole hog, and do eat some meat, but I try to keep myself in decent nick.”

Unfortunately, the DIY SOS star was beset by another health problem in 2020.

Knowles caught COVID-19 and it left him with long Covid symptoms.

Appearing on ITV’s Lorraine in November 2021, Nick told the host: “I had it really bad right at the start of lockdown.
