We saw a whole new side to Nick Knowles in the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! jungle – and it seems like his ex-girlfriend is all set to see yet another one entirely.
It sounds like the DIY SOS presenter may be planning to revisit romance as he plans to have dinner with his 25-year-old ex-girlfriend, Rebecca Kearns.
In a new interview, Nick has admitted that he’s still in touch with Rebecca and is taking her out for dinner when he’s back in the UK, telling The Sun: “We’re still in touch and I’ll take her for dinner when I’m back. We’re great friends.”
Rebecca is only a year older than two of Nick’s children, Charlie and Tyrian-J, both 24, and the I’m A Celeb star acknowledged the age-gap, commenting: “She’s a lot younger than me, but we got on and still get on really well, she lives and works in London and I’m in the country… She’s a bit older than my kids, but they know I don’t pick people because of age.”
Nick and Rebecca – who he describes as an “intelligent independent woman making her way in the world” – dated from November 2017, before splitting this July.
He was previously married to Jessica Rose Moor, who Nick met in 2009 and married in 2012.
They had son Eddie, now four, but separated in January 2016. They reunited when Jessica was diagnosed with cervical cancer but ended their relationship for good in December 2016.
The 56-year-old TV star became a fan favourite – despite THOSE speedos – but campmate Anne Hegerty claimed he had many blazing rows during the series that ITV decided not to air.
The star was voted off the show after 20 days last Thursday and told hosts Holly Willoughby and Dec Donnelly he’d achieved what he came in to do.
The dad-of-four said: “When I came in here I wanted to see whether a whole group of people could get together and make friends.”
He also revealed who he wanted to win, saying: “I think Fleur is the most amazing young woman. She’s talented and has an amazing ability. And [Harry] is the most amazing story teller.”
After 23 days in Camp, it's time to crown the next King or Queen of the Jungle! 👑🌴

And with Harry the firm fave to be crowned jungle king, he could get his wish.
Good luck with the wooing, Nick. If Rebecca hasn’t been won over by your jungle gallantry, we are very available.
