Mike Tindall has been enjoying some quality time in California recently, but he surprised fans when it was revealed that he was joined by DIY SOS presenter Nick Knowles.

The pair were shopping for gifts on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, which is only an hour and a half's drive away from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in Montecito. Mike and Nick were seen making the most of the warm weather in the Californian city with Mike wearing a burgundy shirt and his companion rocking a similar grey item.

Nick is known for shows like DIY SOS and Who Dares Wins

Back in 2014, Mike hit the headlines after investing a whopping £12,000 in a share in a horse called Monbeg Dude. Despite being a 40/1 outsider, the horse finished in third position in the Grand National that year, earning the couple £105,000.
