Nick Knowles has spoken about his experience with Covid-19 and how he spent 10 months battling long covid.

Speaking on ITV’s Lorriane on Wednesday (November 24) about his new TV show Nick Knowles: Heritage Rescue, the DIY SOS presenter revealed how he had kept his illness secret.

He told presenter Lorraine Kelly that Covid-19 made him feel ‘really bad’ and left him ‘knackered’.

“I’m good now, I had it really bad right at the start of lockdown.” Nick explained: “I got covid pretty bad and me, being impatient, tried to get straight back into exercise directly afterwards.

“There seems to be some correlation or suggestion now that actually going too hard, exercise too soon after covid, can actually cause you problems.

“I had what my doctors described as long covid for about 10 months afterwards. You just have like no energy at all, 50 per cent energy.”

Lorraine asked: “As if you’re just absolutely drained? That’s horrible.”

“Absolutely knackered the whole time” the 59-year-old replied: “but I didn’t want to tell anybody because I thought I might not get a booking for work so I kept it to myself.”

“What are you like, honestly!” Lorraine replied.

“So I’m climbing up you know huge buildings,” Nick continued: “Seven story buildings with ladders and I have to stop every two ladders to go ‘I’m just taking in the view’.

“Amazingly about seven or eight months ago I started to feel better and I’ve started on a fitness campaign.”

Lorraine airs weekdays on ITV from 9am.
