    They were recently snapped cuddling up after the TV Choice Awards.

    But Nick Knowles, 53, has poured cold water on rumours he’s dating Emmerdale star Gemma Oaten, 32.

    The DIY SOS presenter told The Mirror: ‘Gemma and I are not dating. We went on a date. The nature of my work means it’s very difficult to go on a date without everybody making a much bigger deal of it.

    ‘She’s a lovely girl but I’m not in a place at the moment where I am looking to date anybody.

    Nick split from wife Jessica, 28, with whom he shares two-year-old son Eddie, in January, however the pair remain on good terms. 

    ‘I have a relationship with Jessica and we are best friends,’ Nick told the publication. ‘We are working through things.’

    The couple announced their split with a statement which read: ‘It is with sadness that we announce we are separating. Our focus continues to be the happiness of our son Eddie.’

    They left the UK behind to relocate to a five-bedroom house in Spain in 2014 in an attempt to maintain a healthier lifestyle.

    Their move to Andalusia came after Nick was left shaken up after rupturing an artery in his sinus that caused heavy bleeding from his nose, mouth and throat, due to stress.

    Open and honest: Nick said of Gemma: 'She’s a lovely girl but I’m not in a place at the moment where I am looking to date anybody'

    In July, Jessica revealed she was battling cervical cancer and credited her estranged husband with saving her life – as he was the one who made her go to her GP. 

    Meanwhile, Gemma has been a longtime fan of Nick’s work on feelgood renovation show DIY SOS.

    In 2014, she tweeted: ‘@MrNickKnowles crying still. What strength. So beautiful the selflessness shown & your compassion. Quality and worthy TV. Bravo! #DIYSOS x’

    He thanked her for her comments and then she wrote: ‘@MrNickKnowles no probs love, seems an age ago I saw you at ITV. Hope all’s well, keep up the grand work… I’ll buy waterproof mascara! x’

    Two months after Nick’s split from Jessica, she tweeted: ‘@NickKnowles the work you all do @DIYSOS is phenomenal. Wonderful people. Sat here crying! If I can ever help in any way say the word! X’
