Nick Knowles once revealed he didn’t tell anyone about his struggle with Long Covid out of fear he wouldn’t get work.
The TV presenter, who is back on screens tonight for another episode of his show Big House Clearout, opened up about his Covid struggle last year.
The DIY SOS star said the aftermath of having Covid left him with shortness of breath.
Nick Knowles on Covid
“Me being impatient tried to get straight back into exercise directly afterwards.
“There seems to be some correlation or suggestion now that going too hard and excerise too soon after Covid can cause you problems.”
He continued: “I had, what my doctors described, Long Covid for about 10 months.
“No energy at all. Absolutely knackered the whole time.
“I didn’t want to tell anyone because I thought I wouldn’t get a booking for work, so I kept it to myself.”
Nick said he had to take short breaks during work because he had a shortness of breath.
Nick is currently on screens with DIY SOS and his Channel 5 show Big House Clearout.
