Nick Knowles: I’m A Celebrity 2018 star’s rep speaks out on his 'pain' after ‘injury’

An insider told The Sun I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! 2018 star Nick Knowles, 56, needs his “good pillow because he has an old shoulder injury from a long time ago that still causes him pain”. They added: “He gets a really stiff neck and will have been in constant pain sleeping in the jungle.” However, a representative for Nick has since told his injury is from 2006, “nothing serious” and giving away his pillow to Anne Hegerty, 60, will not have an impact on him. She said: “Nick injured his shoulder in 2006 whilst filming.

“He had surgery on it and although it sometimes causes some issues, it’s nothing serious and he’s not in constant pain so giving away his pillow won’t have any impact on him. Anne needed it more!”
