Nick Knowles ‘in tears’ and ‘wanted to be sick’ after near-death experience

Nick Knowles discusses facing fear of heights in new series

Nick Knowles was “in tears” and “left shaking” as he attempted to face one of his biggest fears in a new series.

The television presenter appeared on Lorraine on Friday to discuss the second series of Amazing Railway Adventures with Nick Knowles.

“I was in a gyrocopter over Mount Etna, I tried to get through the clouds and through a storm to see the top of the mountain,” he recalled on the ITV show.

“But that went horribly wrong,” he continued, adding: “And I almost ended up crashing into the mountain, so that was a little bit scary.

“Then I went up a 300-metre tower… I have a terrible fear of heights.”

As a photo of Nick looking terrified was shown, Lorraine Kelly admitted: “You look quite scared there, I have to say.”

“I was in tears,” the 61-year-old confessed.

“I mean you’ll see it in the programme, I was sitting there in tears and shaking and wanting to be sick and I could barely stand up,” he added.

“The director said to me. ‘Nick, you don’t have to do this…’

“I was like, ‘It’s got nothing to do with you anymore, it’s not me versus me.'”

Nick also broke down in tears last month during a special episode of DIY SOS.

BBC fans watched as the episode special which saw Strictly Come Dancing stars Luba Mushtuck, Katya Jones and Graziano Di Prima helped the team.

Their mission was to transform the True Colours performing arts school, which is an all-inclusive dance studio for children and young adults with disabilities and learning needs.

During the episode, the cast of Strictly went to meet some of the students at the school to learn a bit more about what True Colours means to them.

One of them was a girl called Charis, who has Down’s syndrome, who opened up to Katya about her father recently passing away.

When it was time for Charis to later perform on stage, she danced a solo to the song Stand By Me with an image of her dad behind her on screen.

Visibly moved, Nick and Strictly star Katya were reduced to tears.

Nick said: “Not a dry eye in the house, it’s clear to see how much the school means to the community and members like Charis.”

Amazing Railway Adventures with Nick Knowles returns on Friday, September 29 at 9pm on Channel 5.
