Nick Knowles, 60, set to marry for third time as he proposes to girlfriend, 33

DIY SOS star Nick Knowles is set to marry for a third time as he becomes engaged to girlfriend Katie Dadzie.

The TV star, 60, proposed to Katie, 33, on a recent trip to America, where Nick has been working on a show.

Katie shared the news with fans on Friday night with a series of gorgeous photos of the proposal, with Nick getting down one knee and Katie beaming with joy.

She showed off her ‘haribo’ ring and posed with her husband-to-be in a post captioned: ‘So last minute something special happened in New Orleans,’ along with a diamond ring emoji.

Nick shared the snap and added that ‘as people were trying to announce it before us there was a harubo ring incident in new Orleans,’ adding he was ‘very happy.’

Nick and Katie have been loved-up despite their 27-year age difference since first meeting in 2021, and a source claimed earlier on Friday that the pair had taken the next step.

A source told The Sun the couple are ‘so in love and absolutely adore each other.’

They added: ‘Katie is over the moon that Nick popped the question.’

The couple first met when Katie’s daughters befriended Nick’s son at playgroup and the now-engaged couple immediately hit it off.

It will be Nick’s third marriage, with the star first tying the knot with Gillian Knowles in 1995, and later to Jessica Moor in 2012.

He has four children – two with Gillian, one from an affair before he married his first wife, and a son with second wife Jessica, who they welcomed in 2014.

Nick admitted earlier this year that he feels ‘protective’ over Katie after revealing she had been subject to ‘upsetting’ trolling over their age gap.

Speaking to The Sun at the Inspiration Awards, he said: ‘I get upset when they come for people that I care about.

‘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 continued: ‘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.’

The incident he referred to happened earlier last year, after the two were papped and comments flooded in online about their romance.

Nick wrote on Twitter: ‘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. What happened to #bekind?’
