He optimistically added that despite the “struggle” he thinks he is now “on the up”.

Nick Knowles, 59, and partner Katie Dadzie, 32, rise above backlash at Chelsea Flower Show | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Nick and Katie smiled for cameras as they posed together for the VIP preview day of the annual event, ahead of the popular garden show’s public opening tomorrow.

The pair went public with their relationship last year, but Nick was forced to speak out about his girlfriend last month to defend her after trolls branded her a “gold digger” on social media due to their 27-year age difference. 

It seems the couple have chosen to rise above the vitriol, however, as they donned their summer best for the occasion. 

The DIY SOS presenter wore a light blue suit jacket with pinstripes over a navy shirt. 

He paired the jacket with white trousers, completing the look with a pair of brown brogues.

 

Katie looked gorgeous in a summery, cornflower blue maxi dress, complete with a white floral print.

She accessorised with a cream blazer over the dress and a pair of brown heels. 

Explaining why the comments about Katie had riled him up so much last month, Nick told The Sun: “I choose to be on TV. As a result, I expect the whole nine yards.

“I am up there as an object. I’ve chosen to be on TV but my children, or my family, or people I date, for them I feel it’s unfair to have a go at them.”

He also told his Twitter followers at the time: “I’m raging. The woman I was out to dinner with when we were papped is 32, has degrees in two subjects, runs 3 businesses, is a mother of 2, is wealthier & more successful than me & is intelligent & independent unlike the abusive trolls attacking her. What happened to #bekind?”

Brooklyn Beckham and wife Nicola snub David and Victoria in ‘wedding inspiration’ insight | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV

Brooklyn Beckham, 23, and Nicola Peltz, 27, were married last month in a lavish ceremony at the actress’ family home in Palm Beach, Florida. The star-studded event included 500 guests, a custom Valentino wedding gown and a full string orchestra.

The multi-million-pound affair was one of the celebrity events of the year and included A-listers like Eva Longoria, Spice Girl Mel C and Serena and Venus Williams.

The couple’s extravagant ceremony has drawn speculation as to whether they were inspired by the nuptials of Brooklyn’s parents, David, 47, and Victoria, 48.

David and Victoria’s iconic wedding was held in 1999 in Luttrellstown Castle in Ireland.

It famously included giant golden thrones, Victoria donning a diamond tiara and a four-month-old Brooklyn matching his dad in a white suit.

Brooklyn and Nicola have now reflected on their special day and dispelled rumours that they took inspiration from David and Victoria in an apparent snub.

Nicola told British Vogue: “Their wedding was incredible and those pictures are iconic.

“But the wedding we were most inspired by was Iman and David Bowie’s.”

David and Iman wed in 1992 at Lausanne City Hall in Switzerland.

Another picture showed the mum-of-four in a selfie with her daughter Harper, 10, and Desperate Housewives star Eva.

Earlier in the week, Victoria described how she became overcome with “emotion” while she watched her son tie the knot.

She said: “It’s a big deal, your child getting married. I was very emotional.

“David’s speech was beautiful.”

The fashion designer added that it took her a while to figure out what she wanted to wear to ensure she was looking “appropriate”.

She went on: “It took me quite a while to figure out what I wanted to wear.

“The day wasn’t about me, it was about Brooklyn and Nicola. So, I wanted to look appropriate, and really to be comfortable and to feel like myself”, she told Grazia Magazine.

What George R.R. Martin Has to Say About LOTR Series

George R.R. Martin hopes the Lord of the Rings series is good—but not better than House of the Dragon.

The Game of Thrones creator shared his honest thoughts on the two shows, which are set to air simultaneously this September, telling The Independent, “I know a lot of articles, the minute the dates were announced, it’s: ‘Oh, the battle for fantasy supremacy. It’s Rings of Power versus House of Dragon, who will win?’ I don’t know why they always have to do that.”

Martin said he wants both shows to “succeed,” but added, “I’m competitive enough. I hope we succeed more. If they win six Emmys, and I hope they do, I hope we win seven.”

Game of Thrones, based on Martin’s books, aired its final season on HBO in 2019 but will be revived via the prequel series House of the Dragon in August. The Lord of the Rings movies, based on J.R.R. Tolkien‘s books, last aired an installment in 2014.

All in all, Martin is just glad to see the fantasy genre getting its recognition, even if it means Game of Thrones has a new dragon to slay. As he said, “It’s good for fantasy.”

He went on: “Brexit has not been a success for the British touring industry. I’m not saying, ‘Well, we’ve got to rejoin the EU.’

“Unfortunately that’s all in the past.”

He continued to the Sunday Times: “But from personal experience and talking to friends who are in other businesses, it’s not a success, it’s a nightmare.

“We’ve isolated ourselves, and that sounds good to some, but it’s an ideology more than a practicality.”
