Nick Knowles and his estranged wife Jessica Knowles are taking steps to get their marriage back on track. The DIY SOS star appeared on Lorraine on Tuesday, during which he opened up about his relationship with 28-year-old Jessica, and revealed that she had accompanied him to the studio that morning.

"We're working on our relationship," Nick confirmed with a smile. "Our essential point has to be our son Eddie… he’s a real joy and makes me smile every day."

Touching on their reconciliation, he added: "Jess went through a terrible time with cancer, and now she's an ambassador for Jo's Trust, and she's doing a lot of that work, so we're backwards and forwards from where we live to London all the time.

"We're not going to work out our relationship in the public eye, but we remain the best of friends and things are going well together. And we are first and foremost parents to Eddie who we love very much."

Nick, 54, and Jessica tied the knot in 2012, but announced their split in January of this year. They sparked rumours of a reconciliation earlier this week, however, when Nick was spotted moving bags and items of clothing back into the marital home.

Jessica went public with her shocking cancer diagnosis in her HELLO! blog in July, and later spoke about the support she had received from her estranged husband. "Nick is a wonderful friend, he's here all the time, he's amazing with Eddie," she told the Mirror. "Nick comes over and cooks me food, he's even planted flowers in my garden. He wanted me surrounded by colour."

A few weeks after revealing her cancer battle, Jessica shared the happy news that she had beaten the disease, posting a heartwarming video of the moment she got to tell two-year-old Eddy that "Mummy is better".
