Nick Knowles, 59, claps back at troll claiming girlfriend, 32, is with him for his money

Nick Knowles has snapped back at trolls who have claimed that his younger girlfriend is only with for his money.

The 59 year old was pictured passionately kissing Katie Dadzie, 32, in the streets of Mayfair earlier this month as they enjoyed a date night in the capital.

Despite their public displays affection, it seems that the genuineness of the pair’s relationship hasn’t convinced some who believe that Katie, who is 27 years Nick’s junior, is with the DIY SOS star for his bank account.

Nick – who has an estimated £7.5 million fortune — has been left frustrated at the comments as he spoke out in defence of his girlfriend this week, calling her a “businesswoman herself” who is even “wealthier than [him]”, therefore not in need of his money.

“If you put yourself on TV then you know you are going to get all that stuff. It is more upsetting for the people I am with,” Nick told the Daily Star.

"Some of the nasty things that are said, and the implication that because she is younger that she is only interested in me for the money or whatever.

"She has two kids, she owns property, has three businesses on the go, is wealthier than me. It is upsetting that they talk about people I am with."

Katie is mum to two children and is the boss of Boobbix, which provides lactation products for mother’s breastfeeding, and Boa Boa, which sells lingerie and sex toys.

Nick’s response to trolls on his latest relationship comes after the presenter said he was “raging” on Twitter after seeing comments online questioning Katie’s intentions in dating him.

“I’m raging. What happened to #bekind?” He wrote.

It is thought that Nick and Kate, who were first seen together last September, met through their youngest children during a playdate and began dating soon afterwards.

“They actually met through their youngest offspring and went on a few playdates as pals, before romance blossomed. Katie is a beautiful woman, fiercely independent and just Nick’s type,” a source told The Sun.

“They’ve met one another’s friends and, although it’s early days, everyone is hopeful this might be for keeps.”

Nick had previously been in a relationship with 27 year old Emily Hallinan which ended in 2020 and before that was married to ex wife Jessica Moor, whom he split with in 2016.
