NICK Knowles has slammed presenters who cry on TV and revealed that he "walks off camera" during emotional DIY SOS moments.
The 59-year-old has presented the popular BBC show between 1999 and 2010.
Nick has also been the front man for DIY SOS The Big Build over the past 12 years.
But last year he stepped back from the programme when he was replaced by Rhod Gilbert for Children in Need special.
However Nick will be back on our screens next Tuesday for a brand new series.
Nick told Charlie Stayt and Victoria Derbyshire on BBC Breakfast yesterday that despite acting very serious on the show, the sad stories do get to him.

He said: "But the biggest question people ask me is, ‘How come you don’t get emotional in it?’
“And the answer is I do, but I get off camera.
"Because I think, too often, presenters horn in on the emotional moment.
“But the emotional moment is not about me, it’s about the people who need something and the people who did it for them.
