The I'm A Celeb favourite used to have a suit-and-tie job before he landed his DIY SOS presenting gig.

Throwback images of a young Nick Knowles has resurfaced during his time as a traffic reporter on Meridian Tonight.

The I'm A Celeb 2019 campmate looks a far cry from his typical scruffy 'DIY SOS' self, and sports his hair in a sleek side parting whilst wearing a questionable blazer and jacket combo.

The images date back to 1993, six years before his DIY SOS debut in 1999.

Nick has also tried his hand at various other careers, including music - which, due to his I'm A Celeb appearance, has currently landed him a number 1 spot in the charts.

Other dodgy pictures from Nick's past have also appeared online, which see the TV personality donning silver facepaint and long red locks for 1996 documentary The Tuesday Specials, where he acted as an 'imposter' in the music industry.

The TV personality has been praised for his unselfish actions during his time in the jungle, after he offered up his bed for The Chase's Anne Hegerty, despite still suffering from a shoulder injury for the past year.

I'm A Celeb continues at 9pm tonight on ITV1.
