Marriage makes life sweet - Knowles

Nick Knowles has said his new wife makes him a "happier, calmer, far nicer person" and dismissed worries about the 25-year age gap between them.

The DIY SOS star, who turns 50 this year, married 25-year-old Jessica Rose Moor at a small ceremony in Rome.

The TV presenter told Hello! magazine: "I came to the conclusion that you can't spend your life worrying about everybody else. I'd looked after other people for as long as I could remember and what I knew for sure was that Jessica made me a happier, calmer, far nicer person. She makes everything sweeter.

"As one of life's romantics, I'd always hoped that I'd find someone who would make me truly happy and with whom I could look into the future long-term - and I have."

Jessica said the relationship has not been without its challenges.

She said: "Because of Nick being in the public eye and because of the age difference between us and the fact he has children, there was a lot to consider and I wasn't prepared to enter the relationship lightly.

"When we started dating, of course I was aware that there was a big age difference, but there really is no sign of it in our day-to-day relationship. I find it very bizarre, the suggestion that I must have some other reason for being with Nick other than the fact that I have fallen totally, completely in love with him."
