Nick Knowles joined Michael Fenton Stevens on his My Time Capsule podcast, where he revealed he would love to get rid of his laptop any “never visit it again” if he could. The DIY SOS star made the admission as part of his five things he’d like to put in a time capsule and never have to think about again.

The 59-year-old said that while social media was good for connecting, the downside was people constantly being “judgemental”.

He said: “Is there ever going to be anyone going for a job as a senior director or a politician in 20 or 30 years time who hasn’t said something stupid during their formative years on social media?

“I’d hate to think I’d be judged now on things that I thought when I was 15 or 16.”

He went on to say: “Life has to knock the corners off you, you have to meet people, learn and open your eyes and listen to people.

“People are being judged on their half-formed personalities where you might make bad decisions.

“We respond so much to judgemental [people] as well.”

While he didn’t name any particular companies, he took a swipe at those who had apologised to a small community of people who had complained.

“Many of the big corporations and public facing businesses are like, ‘Oh my god we’ve had six complaints out of five million’.

“We know nothing about those six people, we have no idea what axes they have to grind.

“Why are we responding to that?”

Nick is a regular user on Twitter and often responds to users’ opinions.

Earlier this month, he defended Stacey Solomon as viewers claimed her show Sort Your Life Out copied his Big House Clear Out programme.

Both shows help hoarders de-clutter their homes to prove just how much certain belongings are no longer needed.

Hitting back at criticism, the DIY expert wrote: “There is plenty of room for more than one show about decluttering – neither of these formats is the first in this space – there have been many shows on other channels for years about decluttering.

“Anything that helps people is a good thing & @StaceySolomon is lovely and kind.”

Nick is best known for fronting long-running BBC show DIY SOS.

He was forced to miss this year’s Children In Need special following his involvement with a Shreddies advert earlier this year.

His move away from show was said to have breached the broadcaster’s guidelines.

In the latest episode, he was replaced by Rhod Gilbert for one episode.

But, he reassured fans he wasn’t gone for good, as he tweeted filming was underway for upcoming episodes.
