‘I’m protective of her because people make assumptions’: Nick Knowles, 60, hits back at critics over the age gap between him and his sex toy business owner girlfriend Katie Dadzie, 32

Nick Knowles has spoken out and hit back at criticism of his relationship with younger girlfriend Katie Dadzie, 32. 

The TV star, 60, spoke to The Sun last week as he and the sex toy business owner stepped out at the Inspiration Awards in London.

He told the publication that he recently hit out at trolls online, saying: ‘I’m protective of Katie, because people make assumptions about her without knowing anything about her, so that’s why I spoke.’

‘Normally I never comment back to the trolls, but on one occasion when people were a little bit judgmental, I was angry on Katie’s behalf.’

He added: ‘I get upset when they come for people that I care about.’

Despite the criticism, the couple looked happier than ever at the awards, cosying up together on the red carpet.

The pair have just returned from a lavish trip to sunny Dubai, with Nick saying it was ‘lovely’.

Nick previously told The Sun about being the target of trolls, saying: ‘I choose to be on TV. As a result, I expect the whole nine yards. I am up there as an object. I’ve chosen to be on TV but my children, or my family, or people I date, for them I feel it’s unfair to have a go at them.’

Earlier last year, Nick took to Twitter to point out to his critics that Katie was ‘wealthier and more successful’ than him.

He wrote: ‘I’m raging. The woman I was out to dinner with when we were papped is 32, has degrees in two subjects, runs 3 businesses.

‘She is wealthier & more successful than me and is intelligent and independent, unlike the abusive trolls attacking her. ‘What happened to #bekind?’

Katie runs two businesses, one called Boa Boa which sells lingerie and sex toys, and other called Boobbix which flogs ‘lactation products for breastfeeding mums’.

Nick, who split from his wife Jessica Rose Moor in 2016, made his first appearance with girlfriend Katie in September 2021, after ending his romance with PR guru Emily Hallinan, 27, in February 2020.

Nick and Katie made their public debut as a couple at a restaurant in Bath in 2021 after being friends for several years.
