Nick Knowles has confirmed ‘DIY SOS’ hasn’t been recommissioned for another series.

The 59-year-old presenter has hosted DIY SOS since 1999 and helped transform the homes of millions thanks to his dream team of builders and interior designers.

The original format looked to help botched DIY projects which changed when the ‘Big Build spin-off’ was introduced. Instead the programme sought to help deserving families on low income.

When one viewer got in touch with Nick to suggest a potential candidate worthy of the DIY treatment, Nick replied by hinting that the future of the show was uncertain.

One fan tweeted: “@MrNickKnowles can’t DIY SOS help this worthy family?”

Nick replied: “Sadly we are only commissioned by @BBCOne for one build this year for 'Children in Need' and as yet not commissioned for any builds for next year.

“But we know there is great need and we can help many more people and communities so we are hopeful of getting news soon.”

Fans inundated the comment section with pleas, begging the BBC to recommission the series.

One wrote: “That’s so sad to hear Nick. A wonderful programme and exceptional service to communities around the country. I hope @BBCOne commission more soon!!”

Another said: “For next year , work the show and the whole team does to help people in difficult times is inspiring.”

A third added: “I worked 3 days on Little Miracles and will be a travesty if they get rid of Diysos. Was amazing to be part of the show.”

Earlier in the summer, Nick announced that the DIY SOS team would be heading to Leeds for The 'Big Build BBC Children in Need' Special with BBC Radio 2.

He said at the time: “We have another huge build ahead of us in Leeds, which will make a real difference to the lives of girls and young women who are supported by Getaway Girls. If you have a trade, a skill, can spare some time to graft or can help us with materials then get in touch.
