Nick Knowles hits out at BBC for removing one of his shows from iPlayer

Nick Knowles has hit out at the BBC for removing one of his shows from iPlayer and claimed the decision was taken because he’s ‘not posh’.

The DIY SOS presenter, 59, hosted a factual show Historyonics back in 2004 but currently BBC iPlayer only has short one minute clips of the show available. 

On Wednesday one lover of the show tweeted the star to say: ‘Nick, why have I never seen Historyonics repeated? I’d forgotten how funny and Pythonesque it was.’

‘Everything else gets repeats – this only short clips on BBC site.’

Nick replied claiming: ‘Yes it was all very odd. It was the highest rated history show on BBC1 ever getting up to 7 million viewers, which is unheard of. 

‘Factually correct & funny but I wrote it and I’m not posh!’ he said.

‘A great way for school kids to learn about history and have some fun – or are you a bit too snobby at the Beeb?’

Sharing the Tweet Nick then wrote: ‘Can you imagine Lovely Dan Snow writing a family history show, getting 7 million viewers and it not getting a second series, never being repeated and not available to download.

‘Many teachers asked @BBCOne to repeat it or make it available to download but never seen again.’

The BBC declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline for a statement.

The incident isn’t the first trouble he has had with the BBC after the broadcaster made an extraordinary U-turn in May after reports he would be sacked for ‘breaching rules’ by starring in a breakfast cereal ad. 

Earlier this summer Nick was rumoured to be in trouble with the BBC after he appeared in a Shreddies commercial, threatening his 22-year tenure on the renovation show.

Star: Nick is best known for hosting the popular BBC show DIY SOS, but fronted the history programme in 2004

But, despite reportedly being in breach of strict advertising rules set by BBC bosses, the corporation then made a U-turn on their stance. 

Nick told The Sun: ‘I have always said that DIY SOS is more than just a presenting job for me, it’s part of me.

‘It has my heart and working for the BBC for over 22 years is something I have never taken for granted.

‘I will continue filming new episodes of DIY SOS over the coming months and will be back on your screens with the purple shirts next year.’

MailOnline contacted the BBC for comment at the time. 

Nick played a jobbing builder in the advert – a move said to go against the BBC’s ban on TV talent trading-off their on-screen personas.

But fans of the presenter, who once netted as much as £300,000 in one year from his BBC work, took to social media to defend the star.

Some even branded the BBC as ‘inconsistent’ for coming down on Knowles while allowing Match of the Day host Gary Lineker to continue advertising Walkers crisps.
