Nick Knowles decided to overhaul his life after he burst an artery in his nose last year
Nick Knowles had to have an emergency operation after he burst an artery in his nose.
The 'DIY SOS' host has worked hard to overhaul his life by taking up yoga, giving up meat and going without food for an entire week after he was rushed to hospital with a nosebleed.
Speaking on 'Good Morning Britain' on Thursday (12.01.17), he said: "A year and a half ago I was really, really, unwell. I was carrying a lot of stress from work and things. Actually on my way to these studios to do a pilot for a new show I sneezed in the back of a taxi and burst an artery in my sinuses. It wasn't just a nose bleed - I had to have an emergency operation to get it sorted out."
Although he's managed to get his health under control, the 54-year-old presenter's personal life has hit rock bottom as him and his wife Jessica Rose Moor, with whom he has two-year-old son Edie, have just announced that their marriage is over completely after their reunion in November.
The couple - who lost a baby last year - split in January 2016 but attempted to give their relationship another go three months ago with the help of marriage counselling after they came back together when Jessica was diagnosed with cervical cancer in July.
But their reunion didn't work out and they've decided to go their separate ways, although they're adamant they will always remain amicable for the sake of their little boy Edie.
Jessica said earlier this week: "People are confused by how well we get on. And the truth is we get a long really well, as at the end of the day we can say we tried really hard. More date nights, counselling, less time together, more time together. and when you look at each other at the end of the day when you know you gave it your all there's no anger left there, no animosity."
