DIY SOS frontman Nick has hosted BBC1 prime time Saturday night quiz shows Break the Safe, Secret Fortune, and Who Dares Wins. DIY SOS – The Big Build is BBC1’s most watched and longest running prime time factual series, which won a BAFTA in 2019. Nick is also the writer of Historionics for the BBC, and writer and producer of theatrically released movie, Golden Years.

Nick has been a friend of Child Bereavement UK for several years, and has seen first-hand some of the charity’s work; BBC1s DIY SOS: Grenfell featured the building of a new community centre where Nick met Child Bereavement UK’s practitioners and young people bereaved as a result of the Grenfell Tower fire. He has also supported the charity by reading at our Christmas Celebration Concert and helping to promote charity campaigns.

Nick said:

I’m deeply honoured to have been asked to be a patron of Child Bereavement UK. Through my work on DIY SOS – The Big Build I have frequently benefited from the charity’s expertise when preparing for filming with people who have been bereaved. I am delighted to become a Patron and to be able to raise awareness of its wonderful work.
