‘Did we actually do that?’ Nick Knowles reacts to epic error on Big House Clearout show

Rhod Gilbert is stepping in to front the special episode, DIY SOS: The Big Build BBC Children in Need, instead.It comes after Nick was embroiled in controversy over his Shreddies advert.

He will film the BBC show again in the coming months and will be back on screens in 2022.However, Nick will miss the Children In Need charity special because the ad campaign he features in will still be running.
