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.
The row reportedly almost saw Nick lose his job on the show, as he broke BBC guidelines, dressing as a builder in the advert.
The BBC’s editorial guidelines say: “Actors and artists who perform in BBC output should not appear in promotional work, including advertisements, in a way which mimics or replicates their on-air roles for the BBC.”
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.
