Support for 'true gentleman' Nick Knowles as he pays tribute to emergency services

TV stars speaks out to millions of live viewers

Nick Knowles has received appreciation from emergency service workers following his passionate exit speech on I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!

DIY SOS host Knowles has become the sixth contestant to face the boot from the show after a public vote.

He managed 20 days in the jungle and became the camp's de facto cook - playing a fatherly figure to the group's younger members.

After hugging his campmates, Knowles joined Holly Willoughby and Declan Donnelly where he said he hoped the camp's camaraderie could be an example of unity to a UK rife with "division".

After taking a long swig of water, Knowles, 56, added: "When I came in here I wanted to see whether a whole bunch of people could get together and make friends. We are having such a hard time in the UK at the moment. There's so much division in the UK.

"I thought if we could all get on in here then it would be a bit of a pointer for everyone at home. There's this big split going on in the UK."

He then used up the rest of his live airtime to praise the work of emergency services saying: “One last thing – please support our veterans, support the police, support the NHS, support the emergency services. They all do amazing jobs and they have it a lot harder on a day-to-day basis than we do in here.”

Thank-you messages began flooding in shortly after from police, veterans and members of the public on social media.

Last year, DIY SOS, renovated the home of an officer who was left paralysed after the Westminster Bridge.

PC Kris Aves suffered a devastating spinal cord injury when terrorist Khalid Masood hit him with his car.

The crew, backed by hundreds of local tradesmen, installed a lift and widened the doors so PC Aves can now move his wheelchair round the house.
