Katie Dadzie, Nick Knowles’ fiancée, has attacked those humiliating her for stripping down online, stating she had ‘babies to feed’.
After two years together, the DIY SOS host, 61, proposed to entrepreneur girlfriend Katie, 33, this summer.
They met through their young children, who were in the same playgroup, but the proposal was rather unexpected, with him getting down on one knee with a ‘Haribo ring’ before later receiving a genuine one.
While the pair has posted lots of lovey-dovey photos, some of Katie in lingerie have gotten her in trouble.
On Wednesday she donned barely-there semi-sheer lingerie for a skit video based on a TikTok trend, captioned: ‘What he thought he was getting.’
She smiled for the camera in a variety of provocative stances, flipping her hair and flaunting her striped Boaboawear attire.
The second clip showed Katie eating popcorn and wearing a fluffy dressing gown, with the caption: ‘What he got.’
However, trolls quickly piled on about her revealing video, with some saying ‘showing all off on social media’ was disrespectful to her partner, while another said it was a ‘shame’ she was sharing these photos and videos while she ‘had a lovely man at home’.
Another said it was ‘not nice for him to know that everyone is looking’ at her.
Firing back, Katie commented that Nick was ‘a ok with it, but thanks anyway’.
But she then continued: ‘I have kids to feed and rent to pay, on my own – if advertising lingerie for my company helps that, then it’s about us not anyone else.
‘It’s probably more of a shame that you think having a partner means you have to be ashamed of yourself and hide away.’
It comes after Katie published a particularly graphic selfie on social media last month to mark Nick’s birthday, with the shot showing her standing in a white bustier and thong braces as he was shown behind her lending a helping hand.
Nick, who divorced Jessica Rose Moor in 2016, first appeared with Katie in September 2021.
What do you think of Katie’s reaction to the criticism?Now is the time to comment.
From 1996 until 2000, he was also married to Gillian Knowles.
Katie has two girls from a prior relationship, Savannah, eight, and Alex, five, whilst Nick has four children from three past partnerships.
He has a daughter, Tuesday, and a son, Charlie, with his ex-wife Gillian, and a son, TJ, with dancer Paula Beckett.
Nick and his ex-wife Jessica also have a son, Eddie, who was born in 2014, and the presenter met his girlfriend Katie through their youngest son.
